At the core of my relationship with my partner, Tristan, is a shared love — a need, even — to get outside. The fresh air, views and vigorous fun on bikes, skis or our own two feet is a much-needed break from a stressful day or busy work week. In our first year as parents, we learned to integrate our love for the outdoors into our new family life. I'm not going to say we're pros at bringing the kiddo along on our adventures, but we're working on it. 

Our family bike ride last weekend was a great success. After lunch, and just as our 15-month-old daughter, Elise, was winding down for her mid-day nap, we set out on two wheels. We dressed Elise in warm layers, mittens and a hat and bundled her in a down bunting, then strapped her into our bike trailer. With the addition of her favorite blanket and stuffed animal, she was ready for nap time on the go.
