Avocado Picking & Tire Swinging Fun

I rarely get to spend time with just one child but today was a special day! Mitch and I had some time to go outside and play. Just the two of us, one-on-one, Mom & son. It was so precious! Since the weather is a bit chilly out, I grabbed Mitch’s adorable and warm fleece jacket from Carter’s.

We started by wandering under the avocado tree in our front yard. It’s amazing how adventurous young boys become around trees! This avocado tree is very large and the branches reach all the way down to the ground. Mitch and I explored the branches picking off any avocados that we could find. Some were within his reach and some required the help of mom (he’ll always need me, right?). This tree has been “asleep” for a few months and we’ve watched the baby avocados growing. Early november was the perfect time to collect our first crate full. Mitch counted 15 avocados!

After we counted our crate full of avocados, we escaped from under the tree to the swing set! Don’t you love how his cargo pants completed the look with his cute and cozy fleece jacket?

When we made our way to the swing set, Mitch hopped on the tire swing!

All I remember him saying was, “Swing more mom!” Can you tell he had a good time?


Our time together was so perfect! I love his new fleece jacket from Carter’s and it kept his so warm and cozy while he played. So many precious memories were made!

Remember how I mentioned a giveaway happening here at Smart School House? Let me get your fleece shopping started by introducing you to some of my favorite fleece styles for Mitch:

Easy to mix and match, a zip-front suede fleece hoodie is great for layering with matching pull-on pants.


He will be sporty and stylish in a striped fleece hoodie with the oh-so-cozy sherpa-lined hood.
Make bedtime warm and cuddly in the softest fleece PJs. Sweet prints and styles make bedtime more fun.
2-piece PJ sets make bedtime warm and cozy featuring monkeys, tigers and more.

Carter’s partnered with bloggers such as me to help promote the Carter’s Holiday Network. As part of the program, I received product or gift cards.  Carter’s believes that consumers and bloggers are free to form their own opinions and share them in their own words, and therefore did not tell me what to purchase or what to say about the products I used. Carter’s policies align with WOMMA Ethics Code, FTC guidelines and social media engagement recommendations. The winner of any giveaway in this program will be randomly chosen and gift card fulfillment will be handled by a third party.
