March Melt & Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire)

photos: Of course he finds the last patch of snow to ride over! This is our oldest's snowman, made about a week ago.

The weather has turned in Wisconsin and we've lost most of our snow. It might reach 60 degrees tomorrow! We spent most of the afternoon playing in the yard and sitting in the sunshine.

Our middle child drew this great chalk picture on the driveway as I planned a TRX workout. If you didn't notice, he drew buds on the tree as a sign of Spring.

And my husband's test plants all came up. This year he put them in a mini-greenhouse in our office. I'm not sure when he'll start the gardens.

I'm also including an amazing video (below) from the Family on Bikes. I interviewed Nancy Sathre-Vogel last April about their 20,000-mile bike trip along the Pan-American Highway from Alaska to the southern tip of South America. Read that interview and learn more about the logistics of life on the road as a family of cyclists! And look how close they are to the finish!!!

- Favorite sign of spring is being able to ride OUTSIDE!!!

- The wind doubles as hill training, that is how Lance Armstrong was able to become a monster climber while living in the flat lands of Texas, riding into a strong head wind is just like climbing in the bike.

We are having blustery trades this week (30-45 mph) so I am thankful that I have my trainer to ride. Very thankful to have spring-like tweather most of the year here. I don't know how you cold-weather folks do it!
