Kid Day

Hen came up with the idea of Kid Day. Kid Day is a day when the kid gets to decide what he wants us to do and we are required to say yes to the majority, if not all, of the requests. Which sort of seems like every day to me but the not saying no bit is new. I turn down a ton of Hen's requests.

Anyway, our Kid Day started with a bike ride.

Here's a pic of our route:
14.6 miles

  1. Breakfast at Pine State Biscuits
  2. Ride over the Hawthorne Bridge
  3. Brief stop at Bill Naito Legacy Fountain (mama fell and needed to stop a little bleeding)
  4. Rock climbing at the Japanese Memorial Plaza
  5. Say hi to the Mounted Police horses
  6. Stop at Posh Boutique to check out toy selection (not very good for the 6+ crowd)
  7. Browse much better toy selection at Child's Play (one toy is purchased)
  8. Hit Salt & Straw (Hen has Chocolate with Gooey Brownies, I get Honey Lavender)
  9. Flat tire fix at 21st Avenue Bicycles (thanks to papa for the assist)
  10. Tiny amount of water play at Tanner Springs Park
  11. Say bye to the horses
  12. Ride over the lower deck of the Steel Bridge
  13. Bike along the Eastside Esplanade
  14. Finish our ride on the Springwater Corridor
Phew. We made it. 

Hen chose to watch an episode of Pokemon and is now playing with the grandson of our neighbors upstairs. I'm ready for a nap.
