Obstacles to train with – I’m told agility is important for dogs and soccer players.

Plus hands to get dirty.

I want to ride my bicycle

Solo with a smile

Don't stop me now

Riding in the garden. F’s riding solo (with a small hand to get going) and was coping great with the grass.
Is it just me, or is he looking a bit big for that bike?

Balancing

Meanwhile H practiced some off-road skills.
I fear he might soon be pushing for some of the jumps and balancing logs over at Paradise.
(Although only because if that’s the case he’ll be expecting Dad to go first!)

Family walk in the (February!) sunshine to Rattlesnake Ledge/Edge

Great views: Mount Si, the Snoqualmie Valley and the Cedar River Watershed which supplies much of Seattles drinking water.

Checking the trail

Finn was in charge of navigation, and kept up a commentary on exactly where we were for most of the 90 minute hike up.

Riding in the woods with H…

eating Oreos

Eating Oreos

…the champion Oreo eater.

Crash hat hair style

Hard work: wet and muddy and H doesn’t have a lot of weight to hang over the back wheel!
Rode home avoiding the rain to find that the skid lid had left a bit of an impression.

Good Morning Rainier

Early morning at work

"What do you mean? Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good on
this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?"
