Other things J.T. has experienced this summer is visiting Garden of the Gods (above) and seeing the big rock formations... it is only a few miles from our house and we go fairly often when the weather is good.
We have also been to the zoo twice (we are members... gotta make it worth it!) Above: Emma (JTs sister,) a macaque and Emmas cousin, and (right:) JT. with a sleepy orangutan.
J.T. has started to learn to ride his bike. He is very slow on it as he has gone downhill and although he nodded that he understood the braking system.... he apparently didn't and after throwing his feet off the pedals several times going WAY too fast downhill he ended up feet over head in the bushes a couple times. I finally tied his shoes to the pedals and he is doing better. He still has training wheels, but it is fairly frustrating for us because he is so slow that if we were to travel at the same speed he does ~ we would fall over. So that is something we will continue to work on.
