I think I have always owned a bike in my life. Not because it was green or it was the healthy living thing to do, it was just an easy and fun way to get around that made me happy. It still makes me happy and it is always great when we are together on a family outing.
I hope your family is enjoying biking as much as we do. Our community of parents has been wonderful to share their reviews about gear and bike trailer/bike seats. (Please notice that none of these posts are sponsored)
Spring flowers and buds on trees are coming and legend says with them our little fairy fiends. I know, beacuse my little girl keeps talking about them all the time. She is starting to plan her garden for the fairies. Legend says that if she builds a fairy house in the spring that fairies will come and live in it.Add a comment
Have you ever eaten fiddleheads before? Before I noticed them in my local store here in Toronto my first spring here in Canada, I didn't even know what they were. Since then I have had a lovely relationship with fiddleheads.Add a comment
Nature is everywhere; you just have to embrace it
In our outdoor playgroup in Toronto, we explore urban nature. I was lucky to get to know Christie, and her two kids. Even though Christie lives in very urban Amsterdam, she probably lives more in touch with nature than most because she lives on a houseboat in the city. For me this illustrates how close nature can be wherever we are, even in a big urban environment.
This is the beauty with fresh air living. Nature is everywhere; you just have to embrace it.
I hope you are growing edibles in your garden with your kiddies this summer. It is so much fun growing your own food for both the big and the small. And nothing taste better than what you have grown yourself. Even growing just some fresh herbs is rewarding.
Here are a few fun ideas for you and your kids to try out in your backyard.

Don’t you just love it when your kids show you how to play a game or do a new activity? My daughter did just that a few weeks ago, after reading and looking at a book called “Treasure Hunts” by Lenny Hort. She decided she was going to make her own treasure map.In this game she hides a treasure and draws a map.Add a comment
