Now that the family bike is set up and all ready to go, today we packed a picnic lunch and rode over to the swimming pool. It was my first time swimming and I really enjoyed it, especially the splashing.

Happy day

I also really like grabbing the camera and throwing it down!

Big Red

I’ve been on a few bike rides with Daddy, but this afternoon we took our first full-fledged family bike ride. Mommy and Daddy hooked my chariot up to Big Red and we went to the park. It was a short ride (which was good because I was getting a little hungry), but still quite enjoyable.

Big Red

I love how my chariot matches the bike. We looked pretty sharp.

It’s no secret that I don’t like to bend my knees. That’s right. I like to flex my powerful quads all the time to keep my legs as straight as an arrow.

Unfortunately, Mom & Dad don’t share my enthusiasm for straightleggedness. They’re trying to get me to walk and/or crawl, and frankly, I want no part of it.

All fours

Lately, I’ve been spending more time on my tummy, which I don’t care for. I make swimming and flying motions, but no crawling motions. Also, they make me kneel and bend my knees a lot.

Play time

Maybe it will do me some good. Who knows? I’m not concerned about it.

I was taking a bath. With my fishy.

Fishy

Although this camera seems like a fun toy too. I wonder if it works under water.

Submersible

I guess so. Well, bath time is over. It’s time to rinse off.

I’ve been really into finger foods lately. ┬áCheerios are my favorite.

But I’m not picky, I’ll take whatever I can get.
