Right after Landon was born, John and I tried our best to make sure Briar had a smooth transition into big sisterhood. In between hanging out at home and visiting grandparents, we also peppered Briar’s days with a few family outings, including one to Kidspace Children’s Museum in Pasadena. We’ve been here many times and each visit feels like a new experience as Briar is able to enjoy it in different ways. Truth be told, I just love any excuse to get out to Pas ;)
This particular trip marked our first visit as a family of four and we had a great time! Landon slept through most of it in the wrap while John chased Briar around and I got to take lots of photos. Here are some of my favorite shots from the day:
It’s an indoor / outdoor museum with so many awesome exhibits and play areas to explore.
Ahhhhh, I could just eat her up!
Note the soaking wet shirt. Always bring an extra pair (or five!) of clothes when taking little ones to this museum.
This display totally gives me future room decor inspiration for Landon.
Such a good newborn. Sleep, sleep, sleep.
Look how gorgeous the natural landscape is! You guys, Pasadena is my FAVORITE.
And of course, what trip to Kidpsace is complete with a roll in the sand (most of which she took home in her shoes)?
When John went back to work, I was feeling extra bold so I took the two year old and the newborn to Kidspace by myself, and you know what? It wasn’t a total disaster! Yes, it was a ton of work and yes, Briar took off running while I was trying to nurse Landon (in the sandpit, of all places), and yes, we were all pooped by the end, but it was fun! I felt like that trip was where I got my sea legs for taking two kids out in public. I mean, if you’re going to learn, you might as well dive head first into the deep end! ;)
