Have you ever watched Napoleon Dynamite? Well we have--only about 10,000 times!!--and my kidlets like to imitate Napoleon and his brother Kip...you know...the part where Napoleon pulls Kip into town on his bike (Kip is on his roller blades)? My kidlets have their own version of silliness, and it involves Eric, on his bike, pulling Katie, on her old three wheeler, around the neighborhood.
Oh look...here they come now!!! The little toy that Katie is riding actually started out as Eric's, about nine years ago. I cannot believe that it still works! Hey kids...where are you going???
They have this routine down to a "T." It's kind of hard to see, but there is a long, purple, jump rope, that is tied to both bikes, thus connecting my kidlets in their goofy parody.
Just because he is older--and weighs about twice as much as Katie!!--doesn't mean that Eric has to always be the puller. As you can see, he makes...I mean asks..his sister to please try and pull him around too. She didn't get very far, but she gave it a good, old fashioned try :)See how deprived my poor kids are??? This is why I have to hurry up and finish school...so they can do similar tricks on horseback!
