Not last week, the Thursday before, I took my son to the local skate park. This was the start of the rampant virus that took a hold of our family. He loves going to this skate park to ride his bike but after half an hour wanted to go home as he wasn't feeling well. I knew there was something wrong then and there because he just doesn't stop, all day, until his head hits the pillow at night.
This skate park has lots of cool things for older boys on skateboards, scooters and bikes but even the little ones can have a pretty good ride around the paths and up and down ramps. It's quieter mid week during the day as this is a time when most of the older boys are at school or work (or should be).
It was quite a warm winter's day and I had to take shelter in the shade as I feared getting sunburnt, it was so warm.
This bike is getting a little small for him now so looks like we might have to get him a new one for his birthday in November. We've never bought a bike for the kids in the last nearly 7 years. We always seem to be handed them from friends and neighbours, for nothing.
Check out your local skate park, mid week, for some cheap fun for the kids and their bikes, scooters and skateboards.
