Park Days with Naked Juice

Park Days in Colorado with Naked Juice.

While the whole east coast was slammed with Snowstorm Jonas, we were toasty and barefoot in the 60°s here in Colorado. We joined the rest of the city outside on our surprisingly nice & refreshingly warm weekend. I cannot lie, it was with a twinge of jealousy that I slipped on my Chacos after scrolling through Instagram and seeing all the beautiful piles of snow everyone else got. I’ll recover 😉 The rest of my house was simply thrilled about the warmer weather and insisted on all things outside – eating, talking, sleeping, playing, you name it!

We gathered our necessities – hammocks, the Frisbee, water bottles, and Naked Juice (you know, to sustain us while we played for hours and to be Meg’s lunch who conveniently forgot to eat on her way over 🙂 ) We brought along Sea Greens which is the newest Naked Juice to join the ranks. It has seaweed in it (dulse!) which caused everyone to pause before sipping, but the flavor wins you over! I just love how veggie forward this juice is while still tasting totally fruity (I guess that is the dessert lover in me! )

Colorado weather, as weird as it may be, is such a little blessing for those of us who get tired of the same thing. We have spring days in January and spontaneous snow storms in May. It was so nice to get out of the house without layers and snow boots tied tight – we could kick our shoes off, swing from the trees, slide down the slides, build snowmen in the sand box (the sandmen don’t stay together as nicely,) and breathe the fresh air.

You have to take advantage of the warm days, the blizzards, the thunderstorms, and the scorching hot ones – they make you experience the world in a new light. And although I wish the grass could stay green all year long, the prickly dead grass beneath my toes wasn’t all that bad after all.

What do you like to do when the weather warms up? Do you live in a place where the weather is mostly always the same or do you live in another moody weather state 🙂 ? Are you one of the ones blessed by the crazy snow storm last week? Have you tried Sea Greens or Naked Juice before?

Thank you Naked Juice for sponsoring this post. 

  • We got dumped on during the storm, but our 12″ was nothing compared to farther north. I love Naked juices but I don’t know how I’d feel about the seaweed! I’ll let my husband be the taste-tester first.

    • Oak & Oats

      Oh fun!!! I love snow! And yes the Seaweed is packed with all kinds of healthy goodness and seems weird but it tastes so good! I promise 🙂 You can still let your husband take the first sip!!

  • This looks like such a fun day! Naked juice is my favorite. So yummy!

    • Oak & Oats

      I agree! And it was! Park Days in January are the best!

  • Arizona weather is pretty amazing over half of the year! There are only a few months where you don’t really want to spend a ton of time outdoors, but luckily right now we are in the good season 😉 Naked juices are so good! I got my brother a bunch of them when he had his wisdom teeth out over Christmas so that he could get some good nutrition while he couldn’t eat solids!

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! That is a great idea! Milkshakes taste great but don’t really provide any nourishment! hahah. And yes about Arizona! Are you guys starting to feel more at home there?

  • I miss warm weather. Here, in the Midwest we are in the middle of cold winter.
    I love Naked juice. It’s so refreshing and full of vitamins. Seems like you had an awesome day.

    • Oak & Oats

      That is so wonderful! I do like seasons (like when it is cold in the winter) but it will snow here soon again and I’ll get my fill 😉 haha!

  • I love outside time when the weather is warm(er). We’ve had several days in the 30s and 40s here in Mississippi, so no barefoot outside playing for us, but no fun snow days, either.

    • Oak & Oats

      yes! hahah. It is always a fun surprise!

  • I love Naked Juice! I try and drink one every morning!

    • Oak & Oats

      That’s perfect!

  • We’re getting dumped on as I’m sitting here! Naked juice is so delicious, it’s nice to see you enjoying that sun with your family!

    • Oak & Oats

      hahah! Yes! We finally got some snow here too!

  • That hammock looks so relaxing!

    • Oak & Oats

      It is so nice and yes, I could nap in it!

  • I just cannot believe you guys were wearing Chacos and hammocking!! Oh my! We put our hammocks up in the snow last weekend and took some photos. It was super fun and comfy, especially wrapped in a blanket!

    • Oak & Oats

      I love that so much! Today was another day in the 60s but tomorrow we get snow?!?! #fingerscrossed

  • Oh my gosh how fun that you can just make a hammock wherever with that on-to-go hammock. Love like y’all had a great day at the park. We love Naked juice, too!

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! We love our ENO hammocks!!
