Kid Week, Day 2

Day 2 also feature bike time, and just a little more than we had thought. The goal was to head downtown and visit the painted pianos with the kids.

It was covered on this day, but we removed it, and set it to one side, and the kids had some fun trying it out, both before and after the picnic lunch which we ate there.

JJ roamed and managed to climb up on the fountain. It's not exactly a fountain, but just a trickle of water pouring out of the top and down the sides. Once again, I at am pains to figure out how he did it, but once again, he required some assistance in getting down. And, of course, there was a little performance at the top.

While Danica and Sue stayed with the second piano, JJ decided that he wanted to nose around townhall.

I must explain the bit above about doing more cycling than we had intended. When we were more than halfway home, Danica realized that she had left her biking gloves behind at the benches shown above (photo taken from townhall). So back we pedalled. By the time we arrived back home, we were all drenched with sweat.

Finally, earlier in the day, Danica had done a little performance with the cups, and I think it's worth posting.

Love this concept of placing painted pianos at different places.
That performance with the cups is something to watch. Children are quick to pick up these. I don't think I would go beyond the first step.

What fun! And, as you say, strenuous. I love the idea of public pianos.

Such a fun filled day AC. Your grandson did a great job of flossing on the fountain.

Yes, fun! A little different, the older they get. Our Iz has some health problems, it's pretty hard on me, so we stick close to home.
I love the job Sue did. And the cups are fun.

And biking! It's so hot.

I recently saw two adults doing that dance Jonathan did. It looked very laboured and I am not sure they did it right, since JJ looked very at ease and did it without any trouble.
