Happy Philaversary to us. There were several moments last year when I thought we were insane for moving back to the beltway with three kids and two dogs in tow but it has absolutely been the best thing for our family.

Started using Micro.blog’s ability to participate in Mastodon today after talking to some people about it at breakfast and I have to say I’m impressed with how seamlessly it’s been working so far.

We finally went for it and bought bikes. With my parents in town for the weekend to help with the kids, we took every chance we could to go ride the Fort Wayne Trails. Sore today, I need to build more endurance. 🚲

We had our first complete week of dry warm weather in Indiana. A little early this year! We did a pretty good job keeping up with walking our oldest to / from school during the winter but it’s been so great to start / end every day with a walk this week.

Not sure if I’ll be able to keep up with posting a photo a day in May, but here’s an impromptu one from a cloudy walk I took my oldest and youngest on yesterday at the zoo.
