This time of year always has a way of making us ready for the warm days of spring and summer. And of course with those thoughts of warm months come dreams of our spring and summer vegetable garden! For the last few years, we've really made an effort to put in a substantial vegetable garden in our backyard. The children love to help pick out the seeds, plant them, water the plants, and pick the vegetables (and eat them, too), so it's a fun, educational, and tasty experience for them. We also like the fact that we get to eat our own organically grown veggies!
The trail to the Fairway waterfall is short and easy and the trailhead is conveniently located, so it's a perfect hike for kids. So bundle up, put on those puddle stompers and raincoats, and head outdoors for a waterfall hike!
This pretzel recipe is easy, fast, and perfect for children to help with, and the results are delicious, too. It's a great activity for rainy days and playgroups, too.

One of the things I love most about winter and early spring in Marin is being able to hike to a beautiful waterfall, and when it rains families have many to choose from.
