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.

WHERE IS THAT PARK?! Because as soon as I am not preggos, I am going...without my kids.

Yeah, I want to know where it is, too!! That sounds like a great thing for my husband to take my kids to do while I relax at home!!

way to put me on the spot... it's up by Rampart High School. Take Union north to Lexington and turn left. Go past the school and take the very first left--it actually looks like a driveway into the school but there's a sign there that says BMX park and dog park. Hope that helps. It's a blast.

Wow, that looks so fun! I can't imagine how cool the kids think that is.
