About town on a bike
With Mama's new freedom to leave the apartment and walk, we picked up a helmet and hit the streets and sidewalks of Marseille with Sawyer on his bike. To us, it was a walk to the pharmacy and bakery. But to him, much much more.
First taste of free outdoor air on his bike and he took to it like a fish in water. A little boy on his bike in France reminded me of watching sea turtles hatch and head into the Indian ocean a couple years ago. I'm not gonna say that God designed little boys to ride bikes... but I won't say it's impossible either!
All smiles. Let's do this!
No surprise to us, the girls came running. That's pretty much what always happens when the cute blonde kid gets let loose out of the house. His reactions vary though. This time, he dismounted, smiled back, and then started running in large sweeping circles while yelling at the air. Man of mystery, I tell you.
And then there's this. Ham.
