Mountain Biking

Have I bragged to you yet about this (recently turned) 4 year old mountain biker? No? I guess because we've been out riding every evening, watching the monsoon storms on the horizon, and enjoying the summer. Bragging? Yes. Sorry, can't help it.

Yep, there's daddy (above) showing off on his mountain bike. 

Here's Noah headed down the mountain bike path toward the end of a six-mile bike rise on the paved river path by our house.

And here are a couple from our little playground stop along the way.

Goodies from Ikea

Ikea. Sometimes we just can't help it. It's such a good place to stop in phoenix and release some energy - a huge, air conditioned space. The boys were very excited about what they got to bring home: a little stuffed animal mouse and a bamboo plant. Here they are displaying them proudly.

Train Ride ( A couple of weeks ago)



Not many photos to post but at least I'm here! We rode the NM railrunner from Albuquerque to Belen on the fourth of July, just to ride it there and back for fun. We barely even got off, but I thought it was a lot of fun. The boys especially liked the part where we went through the railyard. I'll try to take more pictures this week!

Patriotic Food

We were in Albuquerque for the fourth of July this year, having fun with the kids. We didn't do much, but I made this cake - a great recipe that I will definitely share soon. And Mickey mouse shaped waffles!
