Back in July, I had a baby. And so far, it has been quite an adventure.

While out on maternity leave, which I recently returned from, baby Rosie and I got into quite a routine of eating, napping, watching TV, eating, napping, watching TV … get the picture? I needed to break out of this rut, so I decided to take my new ‘travel system’ to Trexler Park in Allentown and take a stroll.

Rosie didn’t seem to take notice of the lovely scenery this beautiful park had to offer but I sure did! The paths are pretty flat, perfect for a new Mom navigating a stroller for the first time. I might have gone a little overboard by covering the stroller with the mosquito netting, like we were on an African Safari, but we had fun.

Over the next few weeks we broke in the stroller by taking it to The Promenade ShopsMusikfest, Lehigh Parkway in Allentown and the Ironton Rail Trail.

Rosie really seems to love our trips outdoors (I’m thinking hospital switch) so I will be taking her to ‘walk’ around Historic Bethlehem and visit Santa at Christkindlmarkt.

Does anyone have a favorite place to take a baby for some outdoor fun in Lehigh Valley?
