Sweet Moments Of Joy

One of our favorite things to do while visiting my family in California is spending the day at the beach. They only live about an hour from San Diego, so we do our best to spend a majority of our time there {especially on days when it gets above 110 degrees}. I think I've lived away from the valley for too long, because I just can't brave the heat like I use to {nor can my fair skinned beauties~their faces get beet red within seconds after going outdoors}! So naturally our M.O. has been messy hair, sandy feet and salty kisses:).
After this trip, I think Hayden will have a mean sea shell collection. She has spent a bulk of her beach days crouched over the sand, just like this, sifting through the sand {oh that girl, how she loves to collect things}. Once she had her bucket brimming with her prized seashells, she guarded them like if her life depended on it {you'd never know it just by looking at her, but she's a feisty one :D}! 
Mallorie on the other hand wouldn't stay put, she was determined to find a crab and take it home with her. So, she made quick work of scaling the rocks alongside the beach and peeking inside all the crevices {thankfully for me she was unsuccessful in her efforts}. 
Before we left the house, we made sure to eat a good breakfast and pack a few treats for the kiddos to enjoy on our beach outing. The first thing in their bag was the New Honey Maid Dippers, my kids love snacks and these are a special favorite of theirs.  Have you seen these? 
They are made in such a convenient size for little ones and make eating just a tad more fun. My girls like to dip theirs in milk, yogurt and peanut butter {but the sky's the limit:)}. I don't know what it is about small dainty portions that always gets my kiddos excited to eat?!
I'll be honest, most mornings are a bit hectic for us. We are always trying to feed everyone, get dressed and out the door so we can start enjoying the day. A few weeks ago, as I was perusing through Walmart, I stumbled upon something perfect for me to grab and eat on-the-go on busy mornings, they're called belVita Breakfast Sandwiches .

 They come in a two varieties {Dark Chocolate Crème & Peanut Butter}, I went with the Peanut Butter, and let me just say they're quite delicious and very filling! 
Right now you can get breakfast for you and treats for them at Walmart & save .50 off 1 Honey Maid Dippers {Instant Rebate Coupon available on packaging} .
