  • Me personally? at least 4 hours, not including going from the house to the van. i'm sure that adds a few more hours but i'm not taking the time to think about it! lol
    my boys spend at least 3x the amount of time i do out doors.

  • hmmm depends on the week... 15-20 hours? we like the sun! We go to the beach, zoo, to our pool, the park, our yard, and a couple outdoor malls when I need adult interaction..

  • I work as a preschool teacher and weather permitting we usually spend at least one hour in the morning outside, so that is 5 hours during the work week. This weekend we are going to WhiteWater and will probably be there for about 5 hours and on Sunday we will be going river tubing so that would be another 3 hours. On average anywhere from 5-15 hours a week. Bring on the sunscreen and the vitamin D!

  • We are outside a few hours every day.... We take dd to the park, ride bike, go on walks, go swimming.. And that is not including weekends when we go to the Zoo.. I cant believe we havent been to the beach this year yet though :(
    We are in houston, tx so sometimes it is hard because its just so hot & hard to breath, so sometimes our time is limited to am & late pm activities.. Playgrounds are too hot & can burn mid-day..

  • Me, not much. I hate the heat. A few times a week I have to walk to the store. That takes 30 minutes. Every week I have a doctor's appointment that I have to take the bus to.
    My kids spend most of their day outside. If they are inside and whining about being bored I find chores for them to do. They are at the park right now.
