I didn't write a blog post last week because I think that all of the days have just sort of been running together for me a bit, and I lost track of time.
Last Saturday Dad and I put together a dome climber for the kids to play on. Grandma and Papa got it for Raylan's birthday, and the kids love it. Raylan has already learned how to do a "kitty flip" on the bars, and Kiddo has turned out to be much better at climbing the thing than we expected.

Well, Raylan has been figuring out how to ride his bike without training wheels!
He's been doing a great job. We practiced in the empty parking lawn at Woodlawn Baptist Church, and he really seems to have been figuring it out!

Last Sunday, while I was on my daily bike ride (my gym replacement during quarantine), I hit 3000 miles on my trusty ol' bike.
I haven't ridden the bike quite as much since Raylan was born, but I've been riding a lot since the gym has been closed. I was downtown on the Pfluger Pedestrain Bridge when the odometer hit 3000, which seemed appropriate because it's one of the most scenic spots that I ride through on a regular basis.
My parents continue to help out a lot, taking the kids some days during the week so it's easier for Amy and I to get work done.
Raylan's birthday was May 20th. On the following day we had a little birthday celebration at our house with the grandparents. We had pizza, cake, and milk, per Raylan's request. We also had a Greek salad that Amy made, which was tasty, but not part of the request.
That's been it! It's a strange time, but we're doing okay. We're definitely getting some good family time out of it!!
In other news, I bought a Gretsch resonator guitar. I'm not sure that it's a purchase which makes any sense, but, then again, neither does a global pandemic and quarantine lockdown.

Other from that we've just been working and playing with kids, mostly.
Jean/Nana sent a kit to make bath bombs for Raylan's birthday, and the kids had a lot of fun making bath bombs with Amy.
