Denver Skate Park
This is a thank you letter to my 5 year old son. Thank you for making me skate again. It has been a few years since I put wheels to concrete. I had forgotten just how much I love it.
My son found my skateboard hanging in the garage over a year ago, and he has been obsessed with it ever since. He has his own deck now, along with his beloved Tony Hawk signature helmet. If it were up to him, we would ride every day.
Im not going to get all philisophical about skateboarding or how sports help you develop as a person. However, it has been a joy to watch my 5yr old develop in the skatepark. I watch from a distance, often times cringing, as he decides if he has the ability to drop into a new even steeper area. It may take him ten minutes to figure it out, but when he does, he does it with the right amount of confidence, determination, joy, and fear.
I learn something from my children everyday.
Check out the new Wheely Bug ride on from Prince Lionheart.
The distinctive shape of the Original Wheely Bug is very user friendly. The bright and friendly design is an instant attraction to girls and boys alike. They go backwards, forwards, sideways, and round and round. Children don't get stuck against obstacles like some other ride on toys. Wheely Bug help promote gross motor skills and balance like no other toy. Ride On!
Wheely Bug bodies have a padded layer of sponge which is covered with a tough layer of polyurethane leatheroid and can be easily wiped clean. They are great to use on smooth level floors and ideal for indoors.
