**Giveaway has ended. Thanks for all those who participated!**
Yep. We made it. This blog has officially been alive for one year! It all started with a post about minivans and a whole slew of people willing to share the site with their friends.
Do you know what the best part of this blog has been for me? It’s provided a new way for me to ‘meet’ moms and dads who care as much about incorporating the outdoors into the lives of their children as I do. I’ve learned so much from you folks, and enjoy every chance I get to interact with you. We can’t thank you enough for being a part of this blog.
But before we get ahead of ourselves and talk about trivial things like $50 REI gift certificate giveaways, here are a few stats from our first year.
