The last couple weeks we've had the most amazing weather.
It's been anywhere from low 70°s to low 80° but most often it's right in the mid 70°s which is absolutely perfect.
A few days after Christmas we were having one of those days.
Peanut was still exhausted from all the festivities but could not seem to settle down to nap.
We've never been able to force him into a nap and I just wasn't up to trying.
We decided that a bike ride down the street to the park would be the best remedy.
The park down the street from us has lots of different play areas for little Peanuts to tire themselves out.
He could spend hours in the sand/dirt/wood chips.
After a while we could see the Peanut slowing down.
He quietly sat there poking his stick in the ground.
Poke. Poke. Poke.
Look at that sleepy smile and those tired eyes.
The little Peanut was not happy to be leaving the park.
That's the worst part about the park, you know. Mommy always makes you leave.
On the way home B started laughing really hard.
Apparently Peanut just sort of leaned his helmet on B's arm and fell asleep.
Of course, all our loud laughing woke him up but before long his head was bobbing around, looking for a landing spot.
A little guidance from daddy and he found himself quite comfortable.
This kid, who naps well on, and only on, every second Tuesday in a month with a full moon when the wind is blowing from the East and Jupiter is in the Second House... fell asleep on a 5 minute bike ride.
I think he's having bicycle dreams.
Perhaps when we can't get him to sleep I should have B ride him around the neighborhood for an hour or two.
PS: Always wear a helmet, even if you are only riding down the street. Do not follow our example. :)
