a warm-ish day

So we decided to walk to the park the other day....Ry rode her bike and I pulled Gator in his new wheels.... It was warm but I am still a little nervous and made sure he was really warm... Gator loved the slides and eating the wood chips( some nice fiber for his diet) and Ryleigh loved being on her bike and playing in the sewer with the boys... She got a princess bike with training wheels for her birthday last year and is really getting good at riding it... except for the braking part... The park happens to be located on a huge hill. Ry thought she could manage the hill but ended up racing down it at neck braking speed, flying off the side walk and over the curb, still managing to stay on and crossing the street to meet the other side of the curb that promptly bucked her right off and into the rocks... Mind you, I did not enforce the helmet which we left at home and she is lucky to be alive.... She didn't even have a bump... Thank you guardian angels, they must have had a busy day... Because there was no way for me to run to her with gator in the wagon on a hill..... So we practiced the braking until she has mastered it and also really enforced the importance of a helmet...One of our favorite family activities is to get a free ice cream for gator and shakes for the rest of us at Arctic Circles..... After playing hard the whole day gator was so tired and he couldn't finish his... But he wasn't about to give it up... He fell asleep with death grip on the remaining portion...
