Biking a part of our family life

One of the many great gifts my father gave me in life was biking. It’s not because we considered ourselves hardcore bikers, we mainly used the bike as way to get around in the city and to go for family trips together.

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)

Fairy houses

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.

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.

Grow Sunflowers :5 fun activities

SunflowerGrowing sunflowers is an excellent way to connect children with nature. Planting seeds are easy things for kids to do. Just plant the seeds and just wait and see; they will be astounded on how fast they grow. Sunflowers are rewarding to grow, but also they invite both children and adults to experience the simple lesson of witnessing life spring from a simple seed, a peat pellet and a pot.

Prepping for climbing

I've been doing a series on my personal blog called "Creating a Cragbaby."  The posts have tips and tricks for different situations and challenges you might run into when it comes to taking your little one on climbing, hiking, and camping trips.  About a month ago I published a post that deal with weather conditions , where I tackeled hot, cold, and of course WET weather.  When I saw that AKC was doing an "April Showers Contest" I knew that the wet weather portion would be most appropriate!  So here it is - anecdotal tips from my (admittedly non-expert) point of view...
