More Skateparks

The boys are getting more adventurous at the Skate Parks now.  And we have found a few more parks that we love.  The Arvada Skate Park is huge!  And so far, the people we have met there are very friendly.  We went one day during spring break and a bunch of junior high school aged kids "adopted" the boys as their brothers, helping them up ramps and cheering them on.  It has been a very positive experience for them.  And Aaron eats it up.  Every single moment of it!

We are considering buying him a Razor for his birthday.  Not like the kind you shave with!  One of these.  Or maybe an actual one, not the small kid version.  We'll see.  He's been seeing kids his age on bikes at the park WITHOUT training wheels.  He shows little interest in learning how to do it! : )  The little Strider was supposed to transition him perfectly (we have people tell us all the time their kid went from Strider to real bike with no training wheels).  But we messed up and gave him a bike that was much to large for him and now he is scared of it.  Someday...  But for now, he really likes his scooter.

 Lunch in the back of the Durango since it was too windy/chilly to eat outside.
 Aaron freaking mom out.  "Does this make you nervous mom?"  YES!


 Switching it up.
 Watching the big kids to cool tricks.
 Not just for bikes and scooters...  Today they spent about 30 minutes just running around the empty bowl area.  They were so cute and helpful to each other.  Momma can't get in because I might not get back out!  So the boys had to be creative with what they could do.  They discovered quickly that the best way to solve a problem is together.

It's days like these that I am reassured that I would be totally thrilled with another boy.  I LOVE my boys.  And I have come to love doing "boy" things.  Boy moms are awesome!
