Trying to catch up with recording this fun, fast summer. August is closing in on us and it feels as though summer has just started! But we're trying to make the most of it. On July 4th we gave Raf his big birthday present - a brand new bike. It's an Islabike, and they just started to sell them Stateside. They are very pricey but since we bike a lot we thought it was worth the investment. And it's turning out to be really super. Lightweight and with gears, Raf can ride so much faster and farther. A win win. We gave it to him just before we headed to the annual parade in Ocean's Park. We tied some decorations to the bike and Raf rode in the parade for a while...
After a fun morning we headed home to cool off and Raf played with some of his cool new birthday gifts from his friends.
And then we headed to the beach to watch some fireworks.
A very fun night, especially as we bumped into some friends with sparklers.
