We braved the elements this morning on a biking adventure. Kanz and I brought our bikes from home, and Matt came with us on Karen’s rented bike. We biked all over the island for about an hour. There are so many nooks and crannies to explore! When we returned we decided to stretch out with […]

We’ve got one heck of a wind storm going on right now! Gusts up to 26MPH, dad says. The wind blew all night long, and I wondered if a hurricane had suddenly come ashore! Given the cold, windy climate, I had a warm, cozy bowl of oats today! I brought some rolled oats pre-mixed with […]

This morning is a bit like the departure in Home Alone when the whole family is running around. We decided to post pone our run until after our arrival on Bald Head to help de-complicate the morning. In order to cut out more morning chaos I made overnight oats so I wouldn’t have to dirty […]
