Did everyone enjoy the two days of spring we got last week? We did!
Jeff got the bikes out of storage and had them tuned up for spring. On Friday he gave them a good cleaning and put on Arthur’s new big boy seat.
On Saturday we packed our bags and we were off. Coney Island bound!
It felt amazing to be back on the bikes! Look at these happy faces! Sunshine, music, bikes, and the prospect of a day outside, together.
We were cruising down the boardwalk in no time.
We had lunch and then played on the beach for a bit.
Jeff took the boys on a walk down to the pier, and I took a glorious half hour nap on the beach.
The boys got to go on the rides…
We had ice cream…
Arthur and I watched Julian and Jeff go on some of the rides we opted out of. Like this one:
I mean, that’s just too high! Arthur seemed more cautious than usual; maybe he was tired, maybe it is residue from his traumatic experience earlier this week. Either way, I enjoyed having him by my side.
On the ride home the temperatures dropped significantly. Spring was over! I wrapped Arthur in a scarf, secured it with a sandwich bag clip (because I’m crafty like that), and he promptly fell asleep. Julian is such a good big brother; he held Arthur’s head the entire way.
We stopped for tacos in Lefferts Gardens, and that was it! A full day of fun – and now we’re back to wearing winter coats.
