Saturday Scooterin'

He’s a bit more of a daredevil this year. I was really surprised he’d even try going down the big ramp and even more so when he didn’t crash into the pavement. I caught him a couple times, once after he got a wobbly start and the other when he headed straight for me instead of the other ramp (captured on video!). The scooter is an older model and doesn’t have as much ground clearance as the other scooters we saw, so he has to mess around a bit to get past the “hump” at the top.

Oh, and it took all of my convincing that he shouldn’t try going down the half-pipes. They have a bigger top bar to go over and then drop steeply. I told him it would result in a Zane-smeared pavement sandwich, which I think was just the visual he needed.
