    Jennifer, the voice behind Mommy Hiker, and her 3-year-old daughter went exploring at Point Lobos Nature Reserve, and their engaging and picturesque adventure has us dreaming of our own afternoon of discovery. The duo saw crashing waves, rocky beaches, endangered trees and everything in between.

    Shelby, writer of the mommy blog It's Always Sonny, and her family love the city park. Specifically, her toddler-aged son loves to run free and try all the equipment. Slides and swings, ducks and snow cones; spring is alive every time they make a trip to the park.

    Also attending the park, High Heels and Training Wheels' Farah has a few thoughts on the phrase "kids will be kids." Sometimes kids need to release some energy and you can't stop them from exuberant physical play; hey, kids will be kids. But when another child throws your child to the ground at the playground and tries to grab your child by the throat, and the other parent shrugs it off by saying "Kids will be kids"? As Farah says, "No ... your kid's a jerk." Farah adds, "'The phrase 'kids will be kids' releases parents from any obligation of actually having to remedy the poor behavior.... Someday these kids will be adults, and no one says, 'Adults will be adults,' do they?"
