At the park

After a wonderful breakfast of sweet potato hash, eggs, and homemade salsa with plenty of cilantro, we decided to take the boys to the park. David rode his bike, Braden rode his stroller, then both of them played in the fountain. David is still not real good at riding his bike, he fell off quite a few times. I'm still not sure where the problem is, except that he doesn't keep the pedals going and doesn't pay attention to where he's going. Most of the time we just pushed it for him while he walked. I think it's just more time and practice. We'll have to get in a lot more bike riding before the season ends. Here in New Mexico, we probably have until just after Halloween, so that's still plenty of time though he'll probably have to re-learn it all over again in the spring. But rather than riding his bike for most of the time, David said he has to practice running in his new shoes before he wears them to soccer practice tomorrow. I think he's pretty excited. He also spent some time trying to step on Jared's shadow. After our walk, we stopped at the fountain. Now, this is no ordinary fountain, it was built specifically for the kids to play in. It has multiple sprayers that work in a "dancing water" kind of way so the kids never know where the water is going to come from next. I wasn't real sure how Braden would do in the water, but he really seemed to love it. He didn't cry when we made him get out to go home though, but David did.
