These Weeks’ Events

Monday, Dec 12 at 1:30 PM: Stanford Dish Fast-Paced Naptime Hike (Palo Alto) – Join Pippa and little Ruth for a fast-paced Stroller Hike around the loop at Stanford Dish. Meet at the guard kiosk inside the gate at the main entrance (intersection of Stanford Avenue and Junipero Serra Boulevard, Stanford). We’ll tackle these rolling hills and take in the views along this wide, paved path. It’s sunny here, so bring hats, sunscreen, and water. The goal is for kids to rest, particularly those that are reluctant to do so, so we’ll move quickly and try to keep the kids in their strollers. For information on this area or directions, see The Stanford Dish Page. If you’re running late, call Pippa at 510 621 7471.

Tuesday, Dec 13 at 9:00 AM: Stevens Creek Stroller Run (Mountain View) – Join our little Stroller Hikes running gang and learn how helpful social motivation is, for keeping a fitness regime going. We alter our pace, break locations/times, and goals to work with the group, but all members of this group are dedicated to getting a good workout and moving quickly with their kids. We’ll run, walk/run, or speedwalk this wonderful, wide, paved trail from Creekside Park toward the Bay, enjoying shade for about a mile, then some sun and breezes, before turning back to return the way we came. If you make it to the bridge and back (a common goal), the distance is about 4 miles, so this is a good training run for a 5K. Bring any kind of stroller that works for you to move quickly – some members use joggers, and others use small-wheeled strollers. We’ll play at the playground to start or end this event. Meet at Creekside Park at the intersection of Easy Street and Gladys in Mountain View. If you’re running late, call Karen at 408 800 2145.

Tuesday, Dec 13 at 4:00 PM: Shoreline Fast-Paced Hike (Mountain View) – Join Megan and little Vera for a fast-paced hike at Shoreline Park in Mountain View at 3070 N. Shoreline Blvd. The trail is paved, so it’s great for all strollers or kid carriers. Meet at the lake next to where the sailboats are kept (to the right of the cafe / bathrooms building) in Shoreline Park. There are plenty of play structures and a beach for toddlers – we’ll stop to play after the hike! Sorry, no dogs allowed. For information about the park and directions, see Shoreline Park Page and Emily Renzel/Byxbee Page. If you’re running late, call Megan at 408-409-3206.

Wednesday, Dec 14 at 2:30 PM: Ed Levin Toddler Trek (Milpitas) – Join Andrea and Ira at Ed Levin County Park in Milpitas for some fun around the lake. We will meet at the playground at 2:30 and head up the hill for a toddler trek around the lake. The path is bumpy, but can accomodate a stroller as well as little feet. Dogs welcome. Ed Levin is located at 3100 Calaveras Road, Milpitas. Follow the signs on Calaveras to Sandy Wool Lake (left at Downing Road), then turn right after the entry gate to find the playground. Bring $6 for parking. Bring a carrier or stroller for your child (if they don’t walk), water, and a leash for your dog (required when on trails). If you’re running late, call Andrea at 818-334-9632 (but know that reception is patchy at the park).

Thursday, Dec 15 at 1:30 PM: Toddler Trek – Location To Be Determined – Ann will send out a notice about this event to the Yahoo Group once the location has been determined.

Friday, Dec 16 at 3:30 PM: Planet Granite Rock Climbing (Sunnyvale) – Come indoors from the cold weather and try hiking up a wall for a change! Lisa, Samuel, Shira, Debbie, and Max will be hosting some climbing here at Planet Granite at 815 Stewart Drive, in Sunnyvale. Bring $10 to climb or boulder. You can also rent harnesses or shoes if you want to climb on ropes (for kids over 40 pounds), or just wear regular shoes (with rubber soles) for bouldering. Debbie and Lisa are happy to belay kids if you don’t know how, and can show you how, so you can take a belay test and do this for your own kids, in the future. If you’re running late, call Debbie at 650-776-1082.
