It's doable...but in general, as a rule of thumb, if the party faces 4 encounters per day, of the same CR as they have levels, that's about right.

Down the road, as ya'll learn the game better, you can vary quite a bit from that, but it's easiest to start with the basics. It's not a huge deal, fighting a coupla CR3s...sometimes you have tough fights, but it lets you get a feel for what they can handle.
