On January 1st we took the boys and some of their friends on a bike ride along the Banks/Vernonia bike trail. It was sunny but it was super cold. We usually ride into Vernonia, grab a bite to eat and then bike back to the car. It was so cold and dark after we ate that Hyrum rode back to the van and drove it into Vernonia for us...what a sweetie! The boys (especially Julian) were super happy they didn't have to ride back to the van:)
Julian sanding down his very first pinewood derby car
Here he is on race night. He was kind of grumpy going into the night (I think he was nervous) but once his car starting coming in 1st place each time he got really happy.
Spent a Saturday hiking around Forest Park.
Julian has been asking for swim lessons for a long time and I finally remembered to sign him up. He loved it and got much better at back stroke and freestyle stroke.
