Running through a part of the city, and not very far from our home, is an old rail line that has ben converted to a paved walking and biking trail. Sometime around the middle of December the city was doing some trail maintenance, cutting back trees and bushes that they deemed were growing too close […]
We’ve been having such fun in the garden this year. Perhaps it is because Maus and Cub, now 4½ and 2, are playing so well together outside. Perhaps it is the extra two garden boxes we built. Perhaps it is because the kids love helping water and are excited […]
