And when the tricks started, Jack was pretty impressed!
And then they started jumping!!!
And Jack loved that!
Imagine his amazement, then, when they started jumping over people!!!
Sam was not that impressed. Although, he's not as familiar with the law of gravity as Jack is, and it probably hasn't yet occurred to him that it is something special when people can fly.
The first thing Jack said when it was over? "Maybe when we get home I can ride my bike!" He was pretty disappointed when I reminded him that his bike was "broken" (actually, he has been too big for it for a while- he's too heavy for the wheels to turn). But then he said "I know! I will put a new bike on my birthday list and then maybe I can get a new bike for my birthday!" I told him that it was a great idea! Dave and I had already planned on buying him a bike for his birthday, but I was a little worried that he wouldn't be as excited about a new bike as he would be about, say, a new train. It was great to hear him ask for a new bike, and especially with such enthusiasm! From that day on he talked about the new bike that he was hoping to get at least twice a day- definitely helped to ease my worries! Yay for well-timed BMX assemblies!
