Since Dagyn got a 'newly refurbised' bike for her birthday, we decided to celebrate by taking a bike ride to the nearby park (or should I say, water retention area). Chris had painted Devyn's old bike purple, added some bells & whistles (well a bell, a basket & some streamers) & I drew some silver pin-stripping decals on it ~ she loved it!
Devyn, unfortunately, wasn't home to join us (he was at football practice) when we got the spur-of-the-moment idea to go. Even without all of us there we still managed to have a great time.
Chris left me with the 2 little ones while Dylan, Dagyn & Dyson followed along with him to Mickey D's for some burgers & fries.
During that time Dyxon, Denym & I enjoyed playing 'chase down the mountain' (running down the slope/hill), hide-n-go-seek behind the trees (well actually, Denym just curiously watched Dyxon & I) & catch with the soccer ball that we brought along with us.
Afterwards, when Chris & the others got back & we had eaten...we all played a very short game of (one-base) kick ball. I think everyone ended up just kicking the ball 1 time. If Devyn was there, I know we would have had to drag him away from playing all into the night... Even if he had just finished practicing football for 2 hours.
The kids also enjoyed playing in the trees & running around while Chris & I got to chat for a moment or 2 in between all the action.
We all knew it was time to pack up and head home when Denym spotted the moon. Good night moon.
(more to come...)
