Stanfield Night Out.
We spent Tuesday night at Bard Park, where Stanfield Police hosted their local "National Night Out" event. They had a BBQ, raffle prizes and kids got to play on the new playground.
It was a lot of fun just to let the kids play, and enjoy the community spirit.
They also hosted a bike rodeo for the kids, and gave away free helmets beforehand. We didn't stay for the rodeo (it was close to 8:30 pm when we left) but it looked like a lot of fun for the little kids!
Our kids LOVED getting a new helmet - Chan slept with his that night; and it took some negotiating to get him to take it off before his bath. I love that they enjoy wearing one; now we just need to get him a bicycle. (He only has a little trike.)
I'm trying to figure out if I should get him a balance bike, or go straight to a bike with training wheels? He's 2 1/2, but weighs 40 pounds and is strong enough to peddle....but not sure if he's coordinated enough to yet. If you have any recommendations, I'd love to hear them!
