I'm back again

And I’m at RTB today!

We took a long weekend, kind of a last hurrah before school starts. Tomorrow! :boogie: Fun and relaxation was had by all, although riding out an intense thunder and lightening storm in a 34′ aluminum can is not so enjoyable. It did, however, make for nice not-dusty riding.

A couple of my favorite pictures from the weekend (since playing catch-up is complicated by losing a Monday) are after the jump!

The tall kid said his Polaris wouldn’t go over the log (because he’s a pretty non-aggressive rider, not because of the machine) and the short kid double-dog-dared Dad to take it over. Since even the short kid’s little 50cc Scrambler could take it, the husband added a little show.

Which freaked out the tall kid, who had to analyze his suspension for any sign of “Dad being a yahoo” abuse. Not that he has any idea what to look for. This led to a volley of accusations such as “girly-boy” and “Superman wanna-be”, which then led to an impromtu lightsaber battle using fallen branches. I keep telling myself they’ll outgrow it, but the instigator’s going to be 52 in November, so…probably not.

The short kid is, of course, too cool for their petty squabbles.
