I just finished reading all of this blog. Awesome. The first blog I have found who cycle with three little kids. Makes me want to do it too!

Made this today. Quite good.

Everyone must be spring cleaning around here, I have received bags of hand-me-down clothing from four different people in the last week.

It’s time to get sorting.

Frogs and daisy chains.

It must be Spring!

Another bike ride to another beach. 

We put a small boy and the Baby Girl in the trailer hitched to Dad’s bike and the other small boy on the Trail Gator hitched to my bike. The small boys swapped places for the ride home.

The Trail Gator was a bit wobbly but not too bad after some practice. I did have to remind the small boys to NOT BRAKE when we are going uphill! If they just ride it like they ride their own bikes it is all good.

We saw a red belly black snake. Eeek! Thankfully, when it heard us it turned and went the other way. 

At 15km each way, it was our longest ride in a long time. The older three boys handled it without a problem. My legs were not so sure.

On the way home, a woman going the other way yelled out “Now that’s hardcore!” as she passed. Made me laugh.

All bounced out!

All bounced out!

Just had our first ever hour long session at AirOdrome indoor trampoline park. So Much Fun!

The stitches.

The London Treasure Pocket Pants.

As I was sewing these I thought I had messed it up… how can that piece fit there?… But it turned out just fine. 

I added a turn up cuff for my slim and quickly-getting-taller boy to add on a few extra months of wearability. I did not bother with the fake fly.

Pattern from the book Sewing For Boys.

These pants are my favourite. And the best part is he loves wearing them. Win!

Bike ride to the beach.

It was a beautiful day that ended in disaster…. Well, stitches actually.

The boys were playing on a sandbag breakwater. Someone threw a ball into the water. Boy3 heroically jumped into the water to save the ball.

As he climbed out, his lower leg was sliced open by a mussel shell. Much bleeding ensued.

The day ended in stitches and the promise of an impressive scar.

Fun with chicks
