Pedal!!!


I have so many things I want to blog about, but I couldn't pass by the photos from today. It was in the mid-40's and sunny!!!!! That of course means we Wisconsin folk were outside without our heavy coats, working in our yards, shoveling the ice/snow melt, and out chit-chatting with neighbors.

The boys played outside on the deck for a long time in the warm sun, and we were even able to dry our big project of the day outside on a rack. Ahh.


This evening A's bike was back in from the shop after getting new tires and a tune up. So we went outside so the boys could ride for a bit. It was still 43 degrees! G loved riding again. A was SO SO SO happy. He learned to ride without training wheels early last summer, but I wasn't sure how it would go hopping on the bike for the first time in 4 or 5 months. He was awesome, and even faster than last year. Is this a happy boy or what?

As the boys rode their bikes up and down the sidewalk neighbors jogged by in shorts and t-shirts. We are supposed to have some rain and snow tonight, but we sure enjoyed our sneak peek today!

I love the constrast of little boys on bikes, with snow drifts in the background. Here's hoping for some more 43 degree plus days for you all!

I still remember some of those first bike rides of the year once the snow started to melt when I was little. It' always such an exciting time. Your boys look so cute and happy on their bikes. Have a great weekend.

Here in Saskatchewan, Canada, we still have snow covered roads so i pulled the vehicle out of the garage and let my little girl ride her bike in the relative warmth.Spring can be too far off can it?

Wheeee! I love the rosy cheeks and happy faces!

I remember from when I lived in Montana that the minute the weather got above 40 you'd see people walking around in tee-shirts and springy clothes.
