My brother-in-law came to visit us with my 8 y.o. nephew in tow (his sister had to stay behind because she was sick). All of these "men" in the house has ratcheted the "boy" play up to a new level. We spent a lot of time outdoors despite wild swings in the weather.
Here is "older cousin" on Kal-El's bike and Kal-El on Me Too's bike (wearing Me Too's hat...how did that happen?).
Me Too is sadly not pictured...probably because he didn't have a bike. We remedied that situation later by putting Older Cousin on my husband's bike. My husband had to switch to a unicycle but didn't seem to mind. We had a nice spring-like weekend until the snowstorm hit and left us without power for half a day.
This morning the men set to remedying that situation.
It wasn't long before they were back on their bikes, in the snow.
Soon afterwards they discovered the super-sized snowbanks the plow left behind.
Right now everyone is napping to regain their energy. They plan on another round of the outdoors afterward.
