Summer is coming to an end but that doesn't mean we are going to stop having fun outside. I love spending time with my family outdoors because it allows us to stay technology free, besides our camera of course-I don't go many places without it; I have to make sure to capture my wildlings in their natural habitat. Staying technology free really allows us to stay closer and to enjoy the amazing things that mother nature has to offer and to learn about her beauty, because I've said it once and I'll say it again that I believe the best type of learning comes through experiences.
I feel that our summer adventures are just going to begin since I had baby Grizz right in the middle of summer so we had to put a tiny hold on them. We are going to make up for it by having summer adventures right into fall this year, that way we won't miss out on anything. With adding another little lost boy to our clan it takes a lot more to get out the door; even just more planning time goes into just our everyday getaways so outdoor adventures take even more. I needed items that were quick easy, tasty, healthy, and ready to go at whim and CLIF Kids has the perfect solution to our problem. We were able to try our their Organic CLIF Kid Zbar Filled and my boys absolutely loved them, well the ones that could actually eat them ;) Zbar Filled offers great taste and delicious flavor combinations that kids will LOVE, with nutrition that parents can feel good about. Boone shoveled one into his mouth so fast that I actually had to dig it from his mouth so that he could actually chew it up. Me, my sister, and my niece all had one as well and they are so filling even for adult and super yummy; We really liked theApple Almond Butter flavor. Plus the Zbar Filled is snacking made fun – the first and only organic, soft-baked snack bar with smooth, creamy nut butter filling to surprise and delight kids. I really like the softness of the Zbar Filled because alot of times I just grab granola bars for quick snacks but they break while they are in our packs during our hike and it makes it hard to eat without spilling half of the contents on the ground. I think they would also be great to break into small pieces for younger kids. This is always a problem I have ran into when trying to find wholesome grab and go snacks for my children who are beginning to their eating journey.
Thanks to the yummy CLIF Kid Zbar Filled we were able to easily jump into the car and go up the mountains on Grizz's first tiny hike without worrying about anyone getting hungry because Zbar Filled is filled with the good stuff. By the good stuff I mean- nutritious ingredients like oats and nut butters, certified USDA organic and non-GMO, and it's doesn't contain high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors.
For Grizz's first hike we took him to a meadow of wildflowers that had an assortment of butterflies and we got to watch the bees pollinate the flowers, which was an amazing thing to see. Cooper brought his collection box (more like a cylinder) where he picked a few wildflowers, and even caught a butterfly, which he ended up letting go. Each path we took lead us to the prettiest views. It was such a fun mini adventure spent with my loved ones with bellies full of CLIF Kid yumminess.
