Successful outing with 2: Hogle Zoo

Yesterday all 3 of us ventured out to the Hogle Zoo. We met up with Lee Ann, Whit, and her 3 boys. I was a bit nervous about the adventure because it was the first time I would be using my double stroller, and be away from home and be pretty active.

Luckily, it was a success! Everyone had a great time and the weather was perfect. We got there early and left before it got too hot or crowded(the only way to do it in my book ha).

They have all these new dinosaur exhibits and fun music throughout the park. It was a perfect day to have our first ‘big’ outing. *PS I found my double stroller on KSL for $70! I was pretty excited about my find. I layed L’s seat back and then put rolled blankets to support her head. I know the pic looks like she’s uncomfortable, but I was just about to pull her out but had to stop for a selfie haha

When we got home and L was taking her nap me and J played the board game Life. I used to LOVE playing that game at night before bed with my sisters. I’m trying harder to have more one on one time with him and put L down when she’s napping. I could tell he was needing some attention and I’m hoping to be better at dividing my time.

Yesterday was probably the most active I’ve been post baby.  I feel really good and it’s hard for me to not just start working out again sine my body feels good. I know it’s important to fully recover and take the 4-6 weeks to do so. Until then, I’m going to keep leaving up our last month of summer!

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
