Fall..a great time to be outdoors

I love fall, it seems so magical with the leaves falling off the trees, crunching under your feet as you walk through the woods, what a great time to play outdoors with your children!

It seems like so many kids have a hard time coming up with something to do besides watch TV and Play handheld games, Play Station or the WII. What happened to the great outdoors?

I remember playing outside on summer nights with my brother, we would hit the badminton birdie back and forth until it was so dark we could no longer see it, this is something my own children love to do. Fresh air is so good for you, and wow…it makes the kids sleep well!

My kids have always enjoyed playing outside and I have the laundry piles and holey jeans to prove it.

I remember playing in the woods, building things with sticks and stones, finding frogs and tadpoles and playing in the creek…the outdoors is a world of fun and adventure!

Playing outside means getting down and dirty which in turn means a lot of work for moms which is why Clorox Bleach is a moms prized laundry possession!

I remember playing in the barn with my dog, who in turn tripped me up and caused me to fall, down…down…..down splat into the manure pit, grazing my head on the cement block along the way. My mom found me crying down there covered from head to toe in POOP, that’s right, dripping up, down, all over the place. Imagine what she was thinking! She hosed me off, not once, not twice but at least three times if not more before allowing me to enter the house to take a bath, not one bath, but several! She was pregnant at the time. Can you imagine the state of my clothing? If it were me I probably would have just thrown them away, but she washed them, probably more than once and hopefully using some Clorox Bleach! True Story!

Go on over and visit Clorox for your chance to win a trip to Yosemite, my absolute favorite park!

Can you imagine playing outdoors in the great Yosemite Park? The beautiful waterfalls, the hiking trails and the majestic mountains all calling out for adventure, skinned knees, great photos, and yes, dirty, tired and hungry kids!

How many of you are going to take the Clorox Pledge to play outside? It’s the perfect time of year, enjoy it before the wind begins to howl and the snow begins to fall.
