My 5 Favorite Kid Friendly Places in Downtown Memphis by popular blogger Laura of Walking in Memphis in High Heels

A couple weeks ago Leighton and I spent the day together hanging out in downtown Memphis in kid friendly places.  I knew I would be on vacation soon and then traveling for work, so I wanted to get in all the snuggle time I could.  So what did I do?  I pulled out my LILLEbaby Complete Carrier, and Leighton went crazy to get in it.  She definitely wanted to go up!  She might be almost 3, but that definitely doesn’t stop us from babywearing.  I usually wear her on my back, but she wanted to do a front face in carry, and it seriously melted my heart.  She kept laying on my shoulder and then hugging me, and I was just eating it up!  Do you blame me?!  We spent the day in downtown Memphis going to some of our favorite kid friendly places so I thought I would share with you some of my favorite kid-friendly places downtown to visit with your kiddos.

1.  Mud Island River Park.  They have a monorail, paddle boats and an exact replica of the river your kids can walk through and splash around in.  Leighton had a ball playing in the water!
2.  Aldo’s Pizza.  Our favorite pizza place in downtown Memphis hands down, and they have a patio so it’s perfect to sit outside with a rowdy toddler.  = )
3.  The Arcade Restaurant.  They have sweet potato pancakes, milkshakes and more.  I know Leighton is already ready to go back!
4.  Bass Pro.  From bowling to eating to shopping to looking out over the city, Leighton loves when we go to Bass Pro.  She also loves looking at the aquariums and the alligators inside!
5.  Watch a Show or Game at the Orpheum or FedEx Forum.  We took Leighton to see Frozen on Ice at the Forum a couple years ago, and we are taking her to see Peppa Pig at the Orpheum this October.  Can’t wait!
I’m so excited to be teaming up with LILLEbaby today to give one lucky reader a LILLEbaby Complete Carrier like the one we are using.  To enter, just use the rafflecopter widget below and good luck!  What is your favorite LILLEbaby carrier? What are your kid friendly places in your home town?!

  1. I like the Complete airflow in frosted rose!

  2. We just received our first Lillebaby and so far it's LOVE! We would be so lucky to win this for Daddy to have his own to carry baby!

  3. I love the embossed black noir! ????

  4. The complete is amazing and the pictures you took are beautiful. Love the frosted rose and the blue two tone

  5. I think my favorites are ones I can't get��. I really like the all orange one and I loved the one of a kind rainbow one!

  6. We love our all seasons. It has been a lifesaver for 2.5 years now and I look forward to using it with our new squish in a few months!

  7. I love the rainbow colored one I've seen and the light pink.

  8. I don't have one, but the lavender embossed is one of my favorites! I also love the stripes and polka dots! So many to love!

  13. I love the embossed!!

  14. Want me those navy blue airflow ones or, the guncles!!!

  15. Love this! I loved wearing my first, but only used a Boba wrap, so we stopped once she got too big for it. My second is coming in August, and with a 2.5 year old plus a newborn, I know I'm going to need to have additional babywearing options in order to accomplish "simple" tasks, like going to the grocery store! This would be great!

    • I also think the All seasons would be a great option for all throughout the year! I loved the stripe fabric of the carrier you're wearing!

  16. That carrier is perfect! We love ours!

  17. Ahhh I love lillebaby!!! I love the embossed they look so pretty and so comfy. Baby snuggles are the best ❤️

    My favorite Lille baby carrier is the Complete Woven – Sand Dollar.

  47. Baby wearing has saved my sanity!! I still baby wear my 3 year old, my 1 year old and a 6m old baby girl I babysit. My 3 year old is learning piggy back and baby wearing saves my neck from him choking me out �� I don't want to miss out on a single snuggle. Today is my oldests birthday, he turns 3 and I'll baby wear as long as I can and soak up all the cuddles and kisses. This would be an awesome birth giving day gift for us!

  48. I love the Seven Seas carrier!

  49. Right now I'm loving my purple mist airflow in the heat but I can't wait to get my next carrier so I can compare. 🙂
