Abbie on 2 wheels

Abbie practiced balancing on her bike a few weeks ago and then spent 30 minutes learning how to stop yesterday. With the promise of a strawberry milkshake, she rode to the end of the "Strawberry Place" cul-de-sac and back - no problem! Then did it again, and again, and again.

And yes, the strawberry milkshake was well worth it.

Boa Constrictor by Shel Silverstein

(Reenactment takes place on the Jordan River Walkway)

Oh, I'm being eaten
By a boa constrictor,
A boa constrictor,
A boa constrictor,
I'm being eaten by a boa constrictor,
And I don't like it--one bit.
Well, what do you know?
It's nibblin' my toe.
Oh, gee,
It's up to my knee.
Oh my,
It's up to my thigh.
Oh, fiddle,
It's up to my middle.

Oh, heck,
It's up to my neck.

Oh, dread,
It's upmmmmmmmmmmffffffffff...
