Lake Miramar

As promised, here is my small write-up about my trip to Lake Miramar with Maddock. It's small now because it has taken me so long to get it written up on here. I blame work and le Tour de France (watching it right now) for me not finding the time to write this.
Anyway, Kassy had gone out on a small shopping trip with Callum and some friends so Maddock and I were left to spend some time together and I thought it would be a great idea to go to the lake. I loaded up the van with our bikes and the trailer. First thing when we got out to the lake, Maddock to ride his bike.
Unfortunately it's really hard to get a good picture of a two year old riding his bike while you're walking (and sometimes jogging) beside him. No worries though, because I got a video (we were looking for the ducks).
Would you believe that this kid rode a mile all by himself? He really did, I didn't realize it until later when I took him out in the trailer and I was looking at the distance markers. But he really did do it, all on his own, even up some small hills.

After his ride we ate some lunch that was more of a small snack because he wanted to go feed the ducks. And I did my best to get a few pictures of that.

I love this last one, I didn't even know I got this last shot until I got home and was looking over the pictures.

Maddock really enjoyed the 5 mile loop around the lake and even wanted to do another lap, so I turned around and went back the other way. Well, as expected, about half way back around the lake I look back and there he is.
Passed out and not going to wake for anything, all that was left for me to do was head back to the car and get everything put in to head back home. I was good timing too, because out of habit I put the chain on the front door without thinking that was the only way for Kassy to get back in the house. I got a phone call on my way back home about it. In the end though, Maddock had a great time, and I can't wait to go back.

[Every picture and video in this post was taken with my phone, awesome huh?]
