President's Day.....

Well, I did something that is unheard of. I forgot my camera!!! I took Bryson and my friend Terra's son Brett to a skate park. I was looking for a place Bryson could practice and came across this skate park. It's in a huge warehouse type building. It has railings and huge ramps, perfect for a beginner huh? We walk in and Bryson looks a little nervous, so I think why not start him big. Now that I look back probably not the best idea I have ever had. I guess I was just more of a dare devil at that age.

We walked over to a ramp and I put his skateboard at the top. I position it so that it will go straight down the middle, all he has to do is stay on. Let’s just say it didn't go as planned. He fell and didn't want to skate anymore. We had just paid 10 dollars so I wasn't going anywhere. Plus we had Brett with us and he had paid also, so I told Bryson lets go sit down and have a snack. He ate a snack and then I went on reading my book and let him just watch everyone skate. After about 10 minutes he decided to head back out there and I let him do his thing. At the end of the three hours Bryson was doing the ramp on his own. He still couldn't go down and stay on the board but he was getting back up after falling down and enjoying himself.

While I was at the park with Bryson, Carter was off with Joe eating at Cinnabon and loving it. I will try and remember my camera next time.

I'm so glad Bryson got back out there and played! Good for him. I finished painting my master bedroom. The guest bedroom is left now. I'm all painted out! I need a paint break- I might finish that extra bedroom next week :)
