Outings With Littles are Always an Adventure | Oh Lovely Day

Life’s adventures in my thirties (especially the second half of my thirties) look much different than the adventures than I had in my twenties or early thirties before I had children. It doesn’t mean I don’t have adventures (I mean, each day of parenthood is an adventure for better or worse) but they are less “coastal road trips or international travel” and more “getting three little boys to the pumpkin patch this weekend or walks to the playground to collect fall treasures with two toddlers.” But I think when you can appreciate the adventure in those little moments, and make them a big adventure for those little people, the motherhood adventures I experience now are just as enjoyable as the ones I had before kids. Sometimes even more so (and occasionally they are a complete fail but I’m always proud that I tried).

Adventures can be scary but that is usually what makes them memorable and worthwhile. And as long as I remember to pack the essentials — extra diapers and a change of clothes for them (because adventures always get messy), a stroller for when we all get tired, snacks for everyone, and DASANIĀ® Sparkling water so I stay hydrated — we usually all return from our adventures unscathed and mostly happy šŸ™‚

With so many flavors to choose from, DASANIĀ® Sparkling has a flavor for every adventure you take! My very favorite flavor is the strawberry guava, but white peach is a new and current favorite. I’ve been a huge fan of DASANIĀ® Sparkling for a couple of years when I made a conscious effort to drink less (or no) soda during my day-to-day life. DASANIĀ® Sparkling helped make that transition easier, giving me just the right amount of flavor while motivating me to drink more water and in the long run helping me to stay hydrated and feel better. And out of all of the sparkling water brands out there, this one is honestly my very favorite because I like the flavors the best and they are a better value than other brands.
