Snow/Canceled Ride/Bike Swap
|It's art that makes creepy noises|
After our visit we did a Shabbos walk and then came home because walking up the hill is hard and tiring and I was stupid and didn't put that maternity belt on. I sat on my bed and proceeded to fall asleep, My kid got pretty upset about this because she wanted me to stay awake but my eyes closed. The nap lasted until Shabbos was over. I looked out the window and it was snowing. It's going to melt right?
We had planned to participated in the Family Ride to peruse the new Beacon Hill Greenway but by 10am I was saying to the house, "I ain't getting on that bike!" Maybe not pregnant I would try the snow biking on the Edgerunner but I didn't want to while pregnant. Plus my kid wanted to build a snowman and throw snowballs at anything that moved. She also had a goal, to step in snow some other kid had not been in. Considering the neighbors kids, including the cutie baby came over we had very little not stepped in stuff.
So, I declare that we all head over to the Bike Swap at the Seattle Center. Plus, if I looked pitiful enough maybe we will even eat at the Chinese restaurant afterwards. Ok, deal. We walked to the bus and then walked to the light rail. From downtown we actually walked all the way to the Seattle Center. I think people underestimate how close it is. I was feeling good, I have my maternity belt on, so I am all strapped in.The snow looks stepped on but Seattle Center had so much snow for our kid to run and jump on. Plus, it was our secret to get her exhausted so when we got home she wouldn't whine about now having enough fun in the snow. Knock yourself out kid!
We also witnessed a baby get a $2 balance bike. WHAT??? The baby wanted to show us his riding skills so he repeated my $2 rant and got on the bike. I hate taking pictures of other people's kids and hate saying stuff like, "I have a bike blog and want to take a picture of your cute baby!". I guess I could have but didn't, oh well. Anyways, that baby got a $2 bike!!
