rails to trails

we took the bikes for an 8 mile spin on the
banks-vernonia trail.
yay for family fun!


me & my new bike...snazzy!

thad & jackie in action

farm country...a horse and some baby lambs

boy on a bridge

after biking kisses

stub hub

after our biking adventure we picnicked
at the stub stewart state park.
we scoped out the campsites and cabins for possible
summer camping locales and jackie loved pouring gravel
over his head and tromping in the grass.

picnic with a view

big boy lunch

training to climb the north face of the matterhorn

on the fence

dumping dirt and gravel on my head is fun!

which way?!

river bum

we're super lucky to have the lowami hart woods trail
right across the street from our house.
jackson could spend hours throwing rocks into the
water and yelling "YAY!!!" after each throw.

spring fling

we got to try out all our new toys today
(my new bike & jackie's new bike trailer)
at fanno creek park. jackie's highlight was eating pretzels
in the burley and a stop at the playground for a swing with thad.
happy spring!

practicing on the big boy swing
