We picked up Zachary's new bicycle today. Santa brought him a bike for Christmas 2006 and it had gathered dust since then. He was not interested, it made him nervous and he wasn't getting the whole pedaling thing. Fast forward nearly 1.5 years and he is just READY! We picked out the bike (with red flames, no less) and went to the park today. He TOOK OFF! With in the first few moments he tipped over - hit his helmet hard on the ground, jumped up and laughed! He fell a couple more times and at one point told us "It's going to take more than falling down to stop ME!". His helmet was well used today. He was so proud of himself and we were proud too! William was thrilled to inherit the practically unused bumble bee bike but he was not in to giving it much effort today. He was less than thrilled with bike riding and while Zachary rode circles around the park William vacillated between pouting and playing on the playstructure.
William had a great time before bath today he had his shirt around his neck and he was running up and down the hall saying "I am super hero, I save the day!". I asked him if he was "Naked Man" and he said no, he was "Donut Man" LOL!
Zachary was Super Why with his mask he made at the art fair we went to yesterday. There were tons of great hands on activities for the kids but it was crazy busy. The boys made a beaded bracelet, Native American medallions, sand art, water color paintings, mari gras masks, bird puppets, scratch art, fossil impressions, clay masks and foil art. And we only made it to about half the stations!
