Riding bikes in the Vondelpark in Amsterdam with kids

Bike riding in Amsterdam with kids at the Vondelpark

April 30, 2017

With two 8-year old boys in tow, one of our favorite things to do is go bike riding both at home in Seattle and when we travel.  When we went to Amsterdam in February, we were worried it would be too cold or that the weather would be too rainy but we really wanted to […]

Looking for fall leaves on a family ride (Marymoor Park to Woodinville)

October 8, 2015

As a mom of boys there really is no point asking if we can go get family pictures in the beautiful autumn leaves. This is what will happen: “Awww….mom!” Boy #1 “Awww…mom!!!!” Boy #2 “Do we have too?” Boy #3.  The husband. So instead I ask if we want to bike ride and then I […]

When you bike with kids from Seattle to Bainbridge Island and everyone survives

Remember the beginning of summer when it seemed like we had forever just to do whatever we wanted to do?  It seems so far away now that school is on the horizon in Seattle and the sky gets just a little darker earlier and eating ice cream cones in the evening means putting on a […]

A few travel highlights from 2014 while I plan this year’s adventures

January 23, 2015

The hardest part of starting a New Year is saying good bye to the old one, especially if it was a good one and while other people are performing cleanses of the body detox sort, I’m purging my phone of the14000 photos I’ve managed to store there in the past year because I don’t want […]

building a cabin in the woods near Snoqualmie Pass Washington

A super dark tunnel and a cabin building update

October 1, 2014

Living with boys is not as horrible as I might have imagined if you told me as a high schooler this is how my life would turn out.  It’s actually mostly lovely and I’m getting used to being outdoors more and embracing all that is frogs, dirt and bugs. But sometimes I do feel like […]
