Wednesday. Walk in Woods...

Ok. Not exactly a walk. 3 hours of biking with a curious child equates to about 1.5-2 miles and zero expectations of any actual physical exertion on the adults part.

He is curious. Very. Although certainly not on the 'early reader' track yet- his interests seem to lean toward physics, mechanics and problem solving. Upon reaching a small marsh area with a drainage culvert being blocked by a fallen tree he recognized the 'dam' effect. Upon me trying to move the tree- he said "Hey Momma. I think you need some leverage. I'll look for a strong branch."

Umm. Ya. He really said that.

Then again...

Later he tipped the bike over. (He's too big for it and the trainers don't really do much after a certain point. He's top heavy. Needs a 'roll over warning' on his visor.).  He diagnosed the reason like this.. "It tipped over because the pedals were too dense."

I have no idea what that means either. Nor where he came across that word. I'm no physics professor. And I don't remember reading that in any of our Dr. Seuss' or Robert McClosky's lately.


Go ahead and give me crap about no helmet. Yup. I forgot them.

"I'm sweating" he decided. So off with the coat.Then camera battery died.

I have one of those. It's very cool to see it in action, albeit you find parts of things everywhere. Hope you guys are out enjoying this beautiful weather!
