Spring has sprung

After a long winter, we are relishing time outside. Here's some of what we've been up to lately:

*Learning to ride a bike without training wheels! Don't let the pink throw you. Nathan learned on this bike, and then he was ready, we took the training wheels off his BLUE one. =) We are so proud of him. He struggled at the beginning, but now he's loving it so much, he wants to ride his bike for hours every day!
*Hosting a dear college friend overnight. Thanks for coming, Erin!
*Lots of playing at the park--we've been going every day it hasn't rained.
Hooray for spring!

No training wheels?? Way to go, Nathan!

Glad you enjoyed Erin's visit and are having some nicer weather to enjoy being outside. Love you, Mom

VERY excited for your son to ride sans training wheels. My youngest child still doesn't want to learn...she's 9. I figure she'll do it when she's ready, but it sure would make family bike rides more fun! I sold my trail-a-bike at the end of last summer in a small attempt to force her hand. Didn't work. Sigh.

And YAY for warm weather. I'm hoping we'll be seeing more and more of it here.

Hi Carrie.
Yea for Nathan riding his bike without training wheels!!
So glad the weather has finally warmed up enough for you to be outside.
Is it time for the tulip festival?

Hope to talk to you soon.

Cute pics, Carrie! So glad you've been able to get out more these days! It sure makes a huge difference in the days, doesn't it?!

Hasn't the weather been great lately? Hopefully with all the outdoor playing, N and N are heading to bed earlier. I remember that being such a wonderful thing when my kids were little!

Thanks for the email, checking in, a few weeks ago. Everything's fine here. Hopefully I'll be blogging more now!

Good job Nathan! Josh loves his bike too. My husband Roy takes him bike riding and Josh is just proud to ride next to his papa. So glad Spring has reached you guys.
