Evenings Outside







The past week we've had a string of nice weather which has prompted us to spend the evenings largely outside. This year the kids are both finally at an age where they can put their boots, jackets and even bike helmets all by themselves and head outside. Their independence is lovely--after years of holding babies/toddlers outside--they can now both run and bike about happily.

Biking up and down the driveway is a hit. Stuey is able to bike downhill with a pedal bike, and is close to being able to go uphill. Nora whizzes around stuey on her bike and the neighbor boys from next door often join us on their bikes. The kids go up and down our driveway and then up and down their driveway.

The firepit is also a big evening attraction...cooking dinner and then marshmellows is so much more interactive then on the grill or in the oven. The kids run about playing and stopping to sit and watch the fire. This is our first full summer with the firepit. Spring is in the air in Kodiak...

Will you post about the fire pit for those of us whom are intrigued by its awesomeness?
