There are a lot of things about our city that I detest. It drives me bonkers sometimes. But it also has a lot going for it, so we put up with the bad and embrace the good. (I could say the same about my kids, but I digress.) On Sunday afternoon we (well, truthfully, David) loaded up the bikes and went to a BMX track near one of the parks. It was designed to be an exact copy of the Olympic track in Beijing, so it's nothing to sneeze at. It's hard to believe that at one time these little kiddos who were in diapers and completely reliant on me are now big enough to ride like animals on a dirt track. They all got into it, were cheering one another on, and got as dirty as you'd expect 3 kids to get when riding around in the dirt. And I know, the mountains are awfully nice to look at, too.
