Visiting those "Northern" Grand-kids!

Ben "catching air"!
Headed up to the mountains yesterday for an overdue visit to see Ben & Skyla!  Of course, their mother too :-)  Ben's been practicing his jumps & really getting in some Big ones!  He also had a Big Crash, which got my adrenalin going!  His handle grip came off on the right - just as he was landing - so he lost control of the front tire.  Way too much excitement for me...  Especially when his chin hit hard on the paving!  He jumped up & said;  "I'm OK!" before we could get to him - so that helped, but geez!
Ben teaching Skyla to box :-)
 Ben is also Skyla's personal Trainer!  He is in charge of her "tummy time" & of course boxing lessons!  Skyla thinks he's just the Best Big Brother Ever!  :-)  Of course, by the end of a busy day - when a little baby thinks she doesn't need Any naps...  something strange happens...
