here for that journey), we met our awesome RE, and after treatments...welcomed our DD (now 3 months). We are an active, toe-headed family of four (maybe five if I get my way), that love sports and the simple life (hence this post)! Hope you stay and get to know the fam. Enjoy!

B plays with toys on her playmat, after 3.5 months of hating it!
T feeding the hungry mommy ducks his sandwich (even though a sign clearly said "Do Not Feed the Ducks/Geese" :). I should have been mad, but I just laughed and enjoyed the moment.
Our generation is getting back to our roots. We are teaching our children to be polite, independent and active (no helicopter parenting!). We show our children by example, getting involved in runs, triathlons, biking, hikes, adventure races etc. We're growing our own food (see our garden below...I'm so proud), and we're teaching better eating habits to our kids. We support organic farmers, buy food at newly renewed farmers markets, buy more natural products that are made in the USA, cloth diaper (I can't take credit for this one, but I respect those that do), breastfeeding is on the rise, we recycle and buy fuel-efficient cars. This generation of parents are just determined to make this generation of kids different than the video game generation, and do what we can to preserve and better the planet. Getting back to the simple life, I love it!
My 2nd year having a garden...and I love growing my own food! I wish we could have chickens like Kate Gosselin, but I bet our suburban neighbors and our homeowners association wouldn't be too pleased. From a city girl, I certainly love the ideas of the country!:)
