Meet your Portland Red Tricycle writers, bringing the best of the best parent stuff to you on the regular. Not only are they an uber-talented, hard-working crew, they’re also moms, dads and community-minded folks just like you –braving the throngs of hipsters at the latest food carts, composting everything, washing mountains of cloth diapers and stomping through thick mud in the rain to find the perfect holiday tree. Read on to find out what they’re hopeful for and working hard to accomplish in 2016. Happy New Year, Portland readers! We love you!

My family has lived in Oregon for 2.5 years and we need to spend some time exploring outside the Portland area. This year I'd like to visit some waterfalls, the Oregon coast, and SW Washington. I would also like to add to our list of favorite hiking spots in the area since we always return to our comfort zone of Washington Park.

What’s your resolution for the new year? Let us know in the comments below!
