Review: Burley MyKick Balance Bike

I grew up learning how to bike by using a tricycle, and then a bike with training wheels. I vividly remember the moment I first felt what it was like to balance on two wheels, on my own.

Review: Small Feet, Big Land by Erin McKittrick

Mother of two small children and wearer of many hats, including conservationist and environmental consultant, McKittrick is no stranger to the balance of parenthood, adventure, work and all the “other stuff” in life. And this woman takes on big adventures, such as long distance backpacking expeditions, including a few with not one, but two very small children in tow. Check out my review of her book, “Small Feet, Big Land: Adventure, Home and Family on the Edge of Alaska.”
