Sunday Runday: San Diego Sundays

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Sunday Rundays are taking a bit of a hiatus.   At least until I get the all clear to run again.  As it is, Friday was the first day I even attempted any fitness, going for a 2 mile coastal walk with Thatboy and Thatbaby.

So when SDMom mentioned that she wanted to start up a "San Diego Sundays" link up, I felt the timing couldn't be better.  Especially since I'm home for the next few weeks and get to take part in all the great things San Diego has to offer this summer.

One of our favorite summer-time activities is Thursday Family Fun Night at the San Diego Botanical Garden.  In general, we're big fans of the Botanical Garden, but we tend to find ourselves there in the winter for Garden of Lights, and in the summer for the Family Fun Nights - which is their summer concert series.

As the name implies, Family Fun Nights take place every Thursday night all summer long.  Hamilton Children's Garden is open from 4:30 to 8:00, with live music from 6-7pm. The concerts are included with the price of admission - $14 for adults, $8 for kids.

All the music is "kid friendly."  Last week we were treated to the musical stylings of the Boo Hoo Crew.

With a new baby at home, Thatkid relished in being out, active, and able to shake his pirate booty.

The concert provides a grass area for the "grownups" which also serves as a great place for picnics - and my love of picnics is no secret. 

The front is marked off by bales of hay, which creates a perfect space for the toddler mosh pit that ensues. 

Following the concert, the Children's Garden stays open for another hour, which gives the kids more time to run off that energy.  There are tree houses to explore,

and loads of organic musical instruments - made from natural objects.

Thursday Family Fun Nights only goes on till August, so pack a bag and your favorite music lover and head over to the Botanical Gardens.
