With the beautiful Danish summer weather running full steam, nobody wants to spend time inside. Today, a pretty ridiculous looking mushroom pool entered the arena and most of our afternoon was spent with various sorts of water play.
Farfar and Sandy are here.
They arrived Thursday and yesterday we spent a gloriously sunny day at the Zoo. We got lucky with the timing a few times and got to see a lot of animals up close and active (polar bears, elephants, tigers). And Savannah finally got to see living giraffes – her all time favorite animal (“The giraffes on the bus go ouch my head, ouch my head, ouch my head…” – you get the idea)
Xander and Savannah were pretty wiped out after this exciting day, as were the (jet lagged) grandparents (who needed an entire day off from our company to recoup :) )
After apparently forgetting about knowing how to ride a bike, which resulted in Xander refusing to ride anything but his balance bike for a very long time, we finally convinced him to get back on the “real” bike and give it a try. Much to his own surprise, he instantly remembered how to work it and I spent a good while chasing him up and down the local shopping street. Savannah wanted to join the fun and quickly realized that the baby jogger was the place to be during these workouts. (She now climbs into the stroller as soon as she sees Xander reach for his bike helmet).
Since that first day, we have expanded our repertoire to include lakeside riding and duck (or greedy swans) feeding – and I have learned to wear proper running shoes in order to keep up with my little cyclist.
