I hope you will pardon my singing and the ridiculous fake accent, but we got a recording of Colin singing along to the banana boat song at bedtime last night. We’d watched Harry Belafonte perform on the Muppet Show earlier in the day so the song was stuck in my head. I started singing it to Colin and he decided to make it into a duet.
San Mateo held a cycling event on Memorial day. The organizers made it pretty clear that biking is weird and dangerous. The chief of police urged us to “keep our bikes off the streets downtown” even though, as it is most places, it’s illegal and terribly unsafe to ride on the sidewalk. The whole thing was kind of a bummer, but Nora and Colin can make anything fun.
Good grief, it’s a running gag.
This is actually the smaller of two coasters Nora and I rode today at Gilroy Gardens in Gilroy, California. She had a blast on both.
I stopped the camera a moment too soon. The next thing she said was, “Actually, no, I’m wrong, let’s go again RIGHT NOW!” So we did. :)
Colin is a little under the weather today so we thought better of taking him swimming at Nora’s swim lesson. Instead, he and I went to the park and decided to go ride Caltrain for a while. We took train 424 southbound from San Mateo to Menlo Park where we got off, waved at the friendly engineer, and then took train 427 northbound back to Hayward Park. We had a blast!
