What a weekend.

First of all, for some reason unbeknownst to me, I bought this.

It is exactly like the first bike I had when I was 11 or so. It is a blast.

We were pretty busy this weekend. I painted some of the front porch railing. We moved a bunch of stepping stones over by the picket fence to keep the dog from digging out to see his girlfriend. We secured the picket fence a little better to keep the dog from pushing the loosened pickets out. I mowed some. The boys weeded the flower bed. etc etc etc

I put Chris in front of me on the Yamaha 175 and gave him his first real ride on a bike. We started out slow then kicked it up a little to jump some berms. At one point, his helmet came up and clipped me on the chin. Not so fun that. He was having a blast, until he tried to get off the bike. He halfway slid and scraped the inside of his knee. Come to find out, not only did he scrape it, he burnt it on the engine manifold. Not so fun that, either. Poor fella. I slathered it with aloe vera last night and again this morning and it doesn't look as bad as I thought it would.
