Country singer LeAnn Rimes was California cruising in Calabasas with her two step sons Mason, 8, and Jake, 4, on Sunday (October 2).
The trio seemed to be enjoying their fun filled day together as they perused a local Barnes & Noble bookstore and dined out with friends.
LeAnn recently blogged about the joys and challenges of being a step-parent and admits, it’s not always easy!
“There are many obstacles to overcome,” the self-described “bonus mom” explains. “Two households with different rules, many different personalities and opinions that can pose issues at times. But it’s important to take the highroad for the kids’ sake and ultimately for your own.”

These two little boys came into my life for a reason and I think I came into theirs for a reason too. And through all the challenges I speak of, we’ve found an amazing relationship full of laughter, respect and love. It’s beyond rewarding to be able to help Eddie raise the boys and shape their lives. I take my role very seriously and I’m proud of the peaceful, loving environment Eddie and I have created for our family in our household. Society will always call me a stepmom, the boys will call me Le, but in our house, in our family, we remove the ‘step.’ We really are all… simply family.”
