We dusted off the bikes.
We took the training wheels off of Benjamin's bike. He was less than thrilled. It turned out to be quite difficult for him...and for Daddy's back.
Benjamin had enough of trying to balance on two wheels, he wanted a go on bubba's cycle.
Earlier this week we had a perfect homeschool day. The kind of day when the boys get started on their work early and we have everything done by lunch. With a whole afternoon to do as we pleased, we headed to the park.
Benjamin tackled the playground equipment. He pretended he was a contestant on America Ninja Warrior. Caleb was the announcer and did the play-by-play as Benjamin tackled different obstacles. This was the "shaky metal ladder". Benjamin also competed in the "platforms of peril" and "tube of terror".
I think Caleb must have reached the age where playgrounds aren't interesting. He was anxious to walk the trails and look for some birds.
Benjamin found a stick and a hole.
Benjamin always finds a stick on his adventures. Somehow they make it home with us. We have a stack of them in our garage.
On the look-out for birds.
"Hey mom, look at me on this cliff!"
This park is on an old pecan tree orchard so there are pecans all over the place. Benjamin loved cracking the shells and eating the nuts.
