365 Days Outside > 170-175

Day 170 I kicked Shaun out out of bed bright and early and made him drive across town to buy a bike trailer at a yard sale. It was only $10!  I didn’t want someone else to get it first! We took our first family bike trip later that afternoon and both kids had a…

With Juniper’s foot injury earlier this week, we have been taking things easy around here. She is doing a lot better, but she’s definitely ready for her foot to stop hurting. Yesterday when I got home from work, she was dancing and twirling around in circles without much of a limp. It won’t be long…

Day 158 We arrived at our camp site in Ohio today. The kids were so glad to get out of the van. My sister brought some glow sticks and we had a little dance party in the driveway. Day 159 Our camp site had a water faucet right next to it, and the kids pretty…

365 Days Outside > 151-157

It is so late right now, and I am SO tired. Usually I am up this late without any thought of it, but lately I have been falling asleep early. I think the road trip reset my sleep clock. Which is a good thing with the new job starting next week and all. The only…

Water Bottle Eyes

Ok, so the “activity” that I’m about to share with you is ultra simple. Like, stupid simple. But so seriously entertaining that I thought I needed to share it! Ready? You might want to take notes. Get a smooth water bottle. Hold it up to your face. Take a picture. Laugh uncontrollably.   Easy, right?…

We took a break from these updates last week so this is going to be a kind of long post! We didn’t really take a break from going outside, but we didn’t take many pictures. We were busy having fun. And the break was nice. Now that we are visiting family and I got a new…

Day 134 Art in the Park! My new favorite event. We had so much fun walking around looking at all of the artwork. I left feeling super inspired! Juniper had a fun time in the kid area. She made a spider from clay and colored a puzzle. I’m thinking about doing a booth here next…

Day 128 While Dad finished up work on our compost bin, the kids and I played with some water buckets on the deck. They were seriously entertained! I’ll have to remember this for the hot summer days ahead. Day 129 We drove out to Hermann today for Shaun annual family reunion. We had a lot…

Day 121 We got the second half of the garden planted today! We planted some radishes, zucchini, onions, sunflowers and watermelon! (And I might be forgetting a couple.) I’m excited about the watermelon, I hope it does well. That would be awesome! Juniper’s favorite part about gardening is getting to use the hose. (And Flynn’s…

Day 114 Today was pretty great. We spent the day at Ehren and Lindsay’s house for a BBQ celebrating Ehren’s graduation. The weather was perfect, the food was delicious, we got to see lots of friends and family, and all of the kids were in good moods all day! It was fun watching the littles…
