Ordinarily Magical

We are learning how to bike and decided that Sunday is the day to learn it! We went to the promenade here but its just too windy. So we went to an alternative venue. The Grove Park. It is so gloomy in there as well and windy but less windy than the beach.

We are so surprised to see that there are vintage car exhibit! My son loves this car as he said he can drive it. True enough it looks like its a good fit for him to drive =P

And we ride and ride. A lot of times fall and we ride again. And..

We are so happy to find OWLS!!!

And since its early and theres not a lot of people we were able to hold one for the longest time. My son loves to stroke animals and this owl just loves it as well.

The bestest thing too is that my son was able to bike a bit. Not long but its a start. And since it almost lunch when we finished roaming around the park we just went to the coffee shop for a mini muffin treat! I remember a post by Karen of Letkidsbekids about how an ordinary trip to the palyground turned magical. I so got her as this one is like that trip. Ordinarily magical.

How fabulous! I think my son would die of excitement if he got to hold an owl for an extended period of time, and I totally agree with your son about the mini. It does look decidedly child sized.

So lovely to stumble across some things that make an ordinary trip out into something special. Good luck with the bike riding.

Such wonderful memories in those photos and I am impressed how calm he was with the owl, I'm not sure any of my lot would ever do that. Once they can cycle, it is such a confidence boost, so amazing to make such a positive start
