Saturday with the Boys

The weather was great, a little windy but sunny around 72 degrees. Mike convinced me to go "Quad" riding so I can videotape Brett and Josh. We made our way to Saguaro Lake and found a place near the river wash to ride. Mike wanted to ride a ways back to a flatter area so Brett could practice on smaller hills. We packed our camera and lawn chairs and took off on the Quads. Mike had Josh and Brett took me. Yep, that is right, my 6 year old drove me. As I was holding on to his tiny frame, I kept on telling him to slow down...."Mom, we are going to loose Dad if I don't go faster!" I told him he would be in big trouble if he went faster than I was comfortable with.
We decided that Brett would drive to avoid Josh witnessing that I could drive the Quad. If he knew that I could do it, he would constantly be begging me everyday to ride the quad and he would have a tantrum if I didn't give him a ride. Well, we finally found a spot that Brett could practice on the hills and he did great. After an hour, we packed up and went back to the car.

Our next stop was a park near the lake. We had a small church party there. We cooked hamburgers and hotdogs and the boys rode in canoes at the lake. We stayed there for a couple of hours and headed home. When we got home, I was ready for a shower, but Josh got out his bike and wanted to ride around the neighborhood. I opted to walk next to him, but ended up running to keep up with him. I finally convinced him to come in to the house after a half an hour jog to get a drink and I locked him in. I was done!

When we were eating dinner, Brett looked up and said, "I'm bored Mom, what can we do tonight?" I looked at him and said, "How about your laundry?" He didn't complain anymore.
