The Challenge

Yesterday the kids and I headed over to spend the day with Mad A and his family. Our kids are pretty close in age so it's loads of fun hangin' out with them and getting involved in some of their play. Riley and Asa are just a few months apart in age and Asa developed a Challenge Course for he and Riley. After a few practice runs to show Riley the course it was on. Asa CRUSHED his own Challenge Course! Riley took defeat well and didn't say too much about it as he and Asa spent the next few hours creating their own teamwork challenges.
After school today Riley headed straight up to the Pump Track running it a little more serious than usual. I asked him if he wanted to me to time him. He said "No, I'm making a course, I want to race Asa on my Challenge." Well, I couldn't stop smiling because the corners of my mouth were tickling my earlobes. Just when I thought this couldn't get any better Riley decided the Challenge would finish with a 50% grade climb. Looking forward to the next time Mad A and family can head over for a new Challenge.
