Zion National Park

Today I'm back with more ridiculously scenic photos from our Spring Break trip to the desert.

After visiting Las Vegas and Valley of Fire State Park, we headed to Utah and Zion National Park.

I hadn't anticipated just how busy Zion would be during our visit. It may not look like there were many other people there in the photos below, but trust me, it was super busy and it took an awfully long time just to get into the park where we discovered there were no parking spaces left! But, just look at that spectacular scenery - it was definitely worth a wait! 

Oscar de la Renta: The Retrospective

Last Sunday Mathilde and I headed to the de Young Museum in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park to check out the current exhibition, Oscar de la Renta: The Retrospective.

BODYARMOR Sports Drink

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by BODYARMOR sports drink. All opinions are my own.

As you've seen in recent posts, my girls are pretty active. Both Ava and Lola swim twice a week at our local YMCA, they take hour long karate classes twice a week in a local park, and as we're living car free, they bike/walk/scoot absolutely everywhere. And of course, every now and then they take part in something super active like last weekend's Berkeley Kid's Triathlon.

All of this activity means my kids get pretty thirsty. They're big water drinkers, but sometimes their bodies need a little more after exercise. Something to replace lost electrolytes. Something packed with vitamins. Something with a delicious taste! That last one definitely ranks highest on my kids' list, but for me the most important thing is that they're drinking something that is good for them.  

BODYARMOR sports drink was the girl's drink of choice after they competed in the triathlon this weekend. BODYARMOR is a natural sports drink with potassium packed electrolytes, coconut water and vitamins. Unlike other sports drinks on the market, it is low in sodium, contains natural flavors and sweeteners, and contains no artificial colors making it a great choice for young athletes like mine. 

Bike to School Day 2016

Last week was an extra active one for my girls. On top of their regular swim and karate classes, Ava and Lola took part in the Berkeley Kid's Triathlon. But the triathlon wasn't the only active event of the week. Last Thursday was Bike to School Day (and Bike to Work Day) here in the Bay Area.

Purple Hair

You may have noticed that Ava's hair wasn't its usual blonde color in my last post.

If you follow Little Hiccups on Instagram you would have already seen Ava's hair just over a week ago, but if not, I thought I'd share her transformation with you.

Berkeley Kids' Triathlon 2016

This past weekend Ava and Lola took part in the 9th annual Berkeley Kids' Triathlon. 

This was Ava's fourth time competing and Lola's first. Having taken out both first place and second place in the past, Ava was pretty keen to take home another trophy. She wasn't fussed about winning though - she wanted to come in third place so she could round out her trophy collection!

Lola wasn't too fussed about trying to win. Given that she can't actually swim properly on her own yet, she knew her chances of taking home a trophy weren't high. She just wanted to have fun and loved the idea of taking part just like her big sister.
