Favorite Kid-Friendly Places in LA

Favorite Kid-Friendly Places in LA

My transition of being a working lady at an office everyday to staying home with my little girl was pretty great, and I think it's because Capri has been so fun to take everywhere with me.  She's so entertaining to be with and loves being out with other people, so it's fun to see her socialize.  Even though it's been harder to do as much now that I'm pregnant, and with both of us getting over sicknesses this week, we sometimes don't get out much more than heading to the park or having a beach day.  But I try to have some outings every week to explore our old favorites and new places in LA.  There is so much to do here and so many kid-friendly activities that I feel like we could never be bored.  I put together a list for you since I know it's hard to find what to do when you're looking for it.  We have been to all of these places and they are definitely great for a day with a toddler.  Leave a comment below if you have something else to add to my list.  Thanks for reading!
