Big days

Today was a banner day. Big times for any young boy.

Yup, Michael rode his bike today without training wheels and didn't crash once. We are very proud of him. He has only tried a few times without the training wheels. Max zoomed along all around us on his new training wheel bike. Then everything stopped when we saw this...

Yep all action for two little boys stops when a garter snake crosses the path.

Michael called it the best day ever. Max did too. Of course 20 minutes later Max said it was the worst day ever because he didn't want to eat his sandwich. Ahhh, the fickle finger of Max.

Daily life

I can't recall if I mentioned it in any past posts and quite frankly, I'm too lazy to look. Sarah and I bought bicycles off of Craigslist and have been riding most days. With her parents here we have even been able to ride together, which has been nice. Now, two out of the four rides we have taken together have ended in flat tires. Plus another from a solo ride thrown in for good measure. They have each been caused by thorns. The thorns here mean business! Sarah stepped on one the other day and lost some blood over it.

We had a good time at the fair yesterday. There we turned one kid into a motorcycle racer.

And the other into a hamster.
