I've had a love/hate relationship with parks since Abbott was born. I find them boring; the kids love them so that's the love part (happy kids, happy mom). In the spring I'm not yet sick of hanging out there and it's not too hot, so the outing tends to be pretty good in my book.
Yesterday Cal really took off riding his bicycle without training wheels, at long last, after practically being forced by me. I'm planning on lots of outings on our bikes this summer, and he needs to be ready. He's been much more interested in his scooter, rollerblades, playground equipment, puddles...anything but the bike.
And in case you're wondering the boys wear their boots everywhere. It's a laziness thing - boots are faster than sneakers. And, you never know when you might encounter a puddle.
