Kids favorite nature sports
Like every spring and fall, the ticks are making their seasonal invasion into our favorite hiking spot in the state forest. as i’ve mentioned before, i try not to mess around when it comes to ticks since we are in the lyme disease epicenter. this pictured outing from this week will likely be one of our last strolls in the forest up the road from us until we have a few hard frosts. until then we will enjoy some of the outdoor spaces that are a bit safer for my boys, as well as stock up on our natural bug repellent (does anyone else have a favorite natural bug repellent, i’m especially looking for something that repels ticks?). with their new found love of riding bikes, this should be a bit easier than in the past years 🙂 we are lucky to have a few nearby parks that have plenty of smooth riding areas that become off limits to vehicles after labor day.
