This is my
Neon + Neutral
outfit post for the
Bloggers Do It Better

Added the straw fedora hat for fun and actual sun protection today. The trim colors complimented the outfit by adding some dashes of color...
These pink hair clips came in the mail yesterday from my Amazon order. They are so much fun. Also notice my pink lipstick. This is a covergirl and I have to go back and buy more shades cause it is very creamy and it truly does last for hours even after eating and drinking and lots of pink kiss marks on the kids cheeks!
These key charms were so cute at F21 so couldn't resist. The dual one with the neon pink I thought would be perfect to add a touch of neon to other outfits...
Although I have to admit every time I picked up my daughter the keys would snag in her hair. Minor issue...
The long wrap around cardigan is from Ruche. It is silky smooth and very easy to wear...

Today's Activities: This morning was so much fun. Like I explained yesterday the new summer schedule for our co-op preschool is two days of outdoor classes where the parks will vary every week. It is a great way to get to know this amazing city better and made me once again thank my lucky stars for being able to raise my kids in such a city.
We gathered at a public playground/park that had very cool play structures but also a very nice water play area that came on at 10 AM. And since this park is deep inland the weather was nice and warm for kids to enjoy the play in cold water.
Ironic that we live on the coast, 5 minutes to the beach but to enjoy Summer we have to drive 35 minutes inland!
Went fully prepared of course with covered in sunscreen head to toe, swim suits, hats, sunglasses and water shoes and towels.
I am also now carrying a folding porter potty that uses plain grocery bags everywhere with us. That way I can have my daughter sit frequently and avoid accidents. Quite practical.
Always have to pack double the food for these outdoor classes cause the kids eat twice as much. Lets see, my son for example ate a full PB&J sandwich, a full sliced apple, a mini bag of fish crackers mixed with raisins, a small cup of pirate booty, a bowl of cut up pineapple chunks, cubed whole peach and a bag of mini kosher dill pickles! They are crazy. And this sounds all very healthy but trust me it is just very normal here in my circles. You will not find a single mommy who has cookies, or chips or ultra salty crackers or hamburgers in their lunchboxes. Every mommy packs the most amazing and healthy snacks and lunches for their kids. Like pasta salads with veggies, turkey sandwiches, home made soups (in thermos), cherry tomatoes, cut up cucumbers, baby carrots, sugar snap peas, hummus and pita bread, cheese sticks, yogurts and lots and lots of fruit. We love to get ideas from each other and kids love to pick on each other's food which we allow since everyone's is very good. I am so lucky to have this great network of mommy's. It is really what keeps me sane!
Here is the photo of the water feature area....
For those of you who live here this is the 'Hilton Head Park' in El Cajon!
Amazing how 5 sprinklers can create so much entertainment!
Boys loved this to target unexpecting kids standing in their path!
My son loved the arch that had water streamers. He said 'it is like rain coming down'...
Touching the sensors that keep the water flowing...
