Emory Ride's his bike!!!

On Saturday morning, we took the training wheels off Emory's bike and took him over to the park. We started off on the grass, and Andrea had him going in no time, about 15 minutes. We moved to a larger grassy area, where he was able to go about 100 feet. He then rode around in a roller-hockey rink for awhile, getting the hang of it. Today, I took him back to the park and he rode and rode and rode. On the basketball court, small parking lot, big parking lot and even on the sidewalk path's through the open-space! He loved it and will be riding his bike to school with Nana in just a few weeks...speaking of which, tomorrow Emory starts his first day of Kindergarten!!!!

Last night we went camping with Shanti, Aimee, Shilah and Serena up at Kenosha pass at 10,000 feet! It was a very nice time, great weather and slightly chilly at night. The fire ban was lifted so we were also able to make a fire which the kids did a great job helping with. Below are some of the highlights from the trip:
