Anyway... we are blessed to have some great places to stretch our legs very nearby. Miles especially loves to ride his push cycle at a local biking park. Other bikers are literally amazed when they cruise by and see him with his helmet on, working his way through the trails! In typical Miles fashion he loves to exclaim, "I am riding my bicycle." as they fly by on theirs. The pictures above show us coming and going (at about the same point) after an almost 1.5 mile ride/walk... pretty exceptional for a two year old in my opinion!!
Another favorite outdoor past time for Miles is still going on a "Bug Safari." We have enjoyed watching some Monarch caterpillars munch on milkweed on our beach this spring/summer. We have literally watched them grow from tiny little worms to big hungry caterpillars.
We served up some BBQ chicken, burgers, and oatmeal walnut burgers for Brian, Diana, Aunti Ei, Thea Annie, and "the Yia Yia's." It was great to catch up and celebrate with family!
Another way we celebrated Father's Day was with a backyard camp out. We even managed to convince our friends it would be a great idea to come share the experience.
Ruben enjoyed playing with his girlfriend Emma!
Michael shared his first Father's Day with Ruben.
I shared a tent with Miles. He woke up with S'more stickiness still smeared all over his face and a beautiful case of bedhead!
He was a little bit dazed, but he was excited that he slept outside.
Miles captured these two images while we were having breakfast.
So if you are looking for the Triant Family, we may not be off on some great adventure out of state, or even out of town this summer, but you will most certainly find us outside and learning about flora and fauna of our own backyard!
