The weather since we’ve arrived in South Dakota has been fantastic. I mean, I took a ride on Dad’s Goldwing today in shorts and a hoodie!

Let me explain the whole stroller thing in the video. I feel like I have to, as Zion’s father, come to his defense. Zion has learned, by watching me push him around the neighborhood on many¬†occasions, to really enjoy pushing strollers. He has been pushing the little one’s at Grandma and Grandpa’s around since we’ve got here. He’s just copying what his dad does. Pretty funny to watch!

Also, we got out this fantastic tricycle today. One that has a long bar in the back that allows me to steer and push Zion from the back. He loved it so much that I couldn’t get him to get off it! I literally had to pry his fingers from the handle bars. I think we were out a couple of hours walking around with that thing! We stopped at the park and played around for a bit, too. Had a great day!
