Another First!

Look who got his first ride! We just went around the block, but he sure enjoyed it!!!

I need to get him a leather jacket. Angela has one that would fit him but it's "pleather" so it doesn't breathe well and is HORRIBLY hot in the summer. Not only that, but pleather doesn't do much for protecting the skin in the event of an accident. That and he needs a different helmet. This is an Xsmall, but it's just a hair bigger than I would like to see on him.

Axel still has to learn some things about riding in Spank. Like, keep your hands inside the ride at all times, because tailpipes are VERY hot. That when Mom taps your helmet it means you need to LOOK at her. And that mom cannot hear you when you're talking inside the helmet and we'r riding down the road. LOL

I have to laugh, because there are ALWAYS people taking pictures of us when we're out. I've been sitting in a turn lane when I realize the person next to me is taking a picture. This time when I took Axel out, there were two teenage girls in a car ahead of us. The girl in the passenger seat turned around and was taking a picture out of the back window. LOL

That is so awesome, Leah - you should mount a passenger cam so we can see the reaction on his face - from the waving hand I can imagine he had a big smile!
