After a punishing headache the night before, I dragged my butt out of bed this morning to take my son to ride bikes with my cousin and my parents. First off, let's clarify that while I am 39, my cousin, is 8. My son is almost 11 so the two of them are close enough in age to enjoy each other's company quite a bit.
My cousin has not mastered the art of bike riding yet, so this was a joint multigenerational effort to help him get the two wheeler down pat. It was an hour and a half of very physical labor for everyone involved (especially Riley, who fell once to demonstrate to my cousin that a fall, while a bit painful, will not kill him).
After a quick ice cream stop at the local Dairy Queen, we went to Beaver Bend Golf Course, a par three course in Hummelstown. It's a great place to teach the kids about the basics of golf, without wearing them out completely.
Although the bike riding had taken it's toll, so their energy waned on the back nine significantly.
It is very nice to be able to spend time with family.
Now to bed so that I can rest up for more biking tomorrow.
