We got to spend a long weekend -- Thursday to Tuesday, at Black Butte Ranch. It was a fantastic end-of-summer getaway.
First morning. Happy boys reading in their pajamas.
During this time at BBR, I taught Jake "the loop" -- how to take a bike ride close to home around a loop where he just has to stay to the left at every fork he comes to, and it brings him all the way around back to the house. The first time, I lead the way. The second time, Jake lead the way with me riding behind to ensure he knew the route. The third time he did it on his own! It's probably near a mile long. That was pretty exciting.
The 4 of us took some long bike rides. With Ryan in the bike trailer and Jake on his own bike, we rode all the way over to the Rec Center to the sand playground. We love this playground -- the boys enjoy the play structure combined with the sand, while the adults love the sunny spot with beautiful views to relax and read while the kids play.
On Sunday we went to the annual Labor Day concert. Such an amazing setting! The opening band was fabulous but the main band was eh. Still, we were happy to be there.
More bike riding -- definitely a favorite activity here.
