Scooter Man

I walked around the block with Ben this morning.  He's a hoot to be with when he's on his scooter.
You might be guessing that he's waiting for me to catch up.  No.  He doesn't do that.  He's spying on the lawn mower guy.
He is such a natural on his scooter. I love watching him sail along.
Ben has a knack for getting stuck in the mountain.
Ben and his mom had a smoothie snack.  Oops.
Our day was filled with errands.  We visited a hardware store and guess what Ben found.
This is a clever mister, and Ben loved playing with it.
He spied an unattended fork lift.  Corinne and I looked both ways...
And popped him in the seat for a few minutes.
Early in the evening we checked on Jeff's cat Casper.  Corinne cleaned the pool and I took Ben around the lake.  Ha.  See the kid on the right?  
He was having the best time.  I caught him as he passed and asked him to please stay near me.
He said he would.
Then he took off again.  It's actually hilarious.  I watched walkers and runners pass him and smile and wave at him.  I only caught up because he stopped at this roundabout.
Then he was off again.  He practices weaves and tricks and watches other kids for ideas.
At this new roundabout, he told me what he was seeing.  Sharks, eels and snakes, he said.
He sailed around and around this roundabout, giggling.
I wish you could hear his giggle.
All of a sudden, the party was over.  Fortunately, he held on for a piggyback ride home.
