Coordinating kicks and summer fun with my kids

I’m a shoe lover through and through. I love getting the boys matching shoes and even enjoying coordinating a bit with them myself. I recently picked up a few pairs of Converse shoes at Famous Footwear, including my favorite summer shoe, the women’s Chuck Taylor All Star Shoreline Slip On Sneaker. I own two pairs and LOVE them. Comfy. Adorable. Easy. And the best part: They don’t let sand in at the playground. I’m so excited to be partnering with Famous Footwear on today’s sponsored post.

My boys love going to the park or playing on our playset. Bodhi is older and climbs, runs and practices the monkey bars. Ezra loves to go up and down the stairs over and over again. He also really enjoys the sand. We spend at least an hour every afternoon after childcare playing actively as a family. We check out new parks, find new ways to play at home, invite friends over, go to friends’ homes and more. It is my favorite way to spend Summer afternoons. And I’ve learned that playing is such a great way to be in the moment with our kids. Ditch the phone. Ditch expectations and just enjoy!

And while I love dressing my boys up, I find that for our every day lives, simple style is best. A cute T-shirt, shorts and a great pair of shoes is all we need. These kid and toddler Converse options stand out and make a simple outfit a stand-out outfit, in my opinion.

The fact that all three pairs are slip-ons makes getting out of the house and to the park so much easier giving us more time to play and way less frustration for all.

While I don’t love sitting down and playing animals or cars, I LOVE playing outside with my kids. I enjoy the slide as much as they do. Swinging? LOVE IT! Running, pushing bikes, playing sports, all things I enjoy.

We are holding on to this second half of summer. Every day is an opportunity to explore, play, laugh and live in the moment with my boys. Ezra is at the age where he is really fun and wants to play as much as Bodhi.

Summer is pure fun and I love trying to make every day a little magical for these two sweethearts I get to raise. What’s your favorite way to spend Summer?
