One of the reasons for making it to Flagstaff early in the day was so we would have time to... sew a tear in one of the chairs... Leo helped:





Wash and dry the air filters... Lilliana helped:

Followed by naptime for the kids, and laundrytime for us.

Spent cleaning and prepping the bikes for storage (with the generous help of 2 & 4 year-old helpers) and a 2 mile cruise to 365Storage:

It was chilly

so we all bundled up to sit outside for a hearty breakfast John Paul & Lisa made:



The kids kept the fire stoked:



Leo helped his dad split some wood:



Then it was time to work on the motorcycles.

A surprise for Aunt Francine

"Hey kids, don't you think Aunt Francine will love it if Blueberry had some stickers?"

"Yeah!" "Yeah!"

"Shhh. it'll be a surprise"

"OK! Shhh."



"Oh, she's gonna like this... let's do more!"



"Which is your favorite, Lilliana?"



Not quite as good a prank as when a co-worker brought her kids into the office and I had them schmear hand lotion on all the doorknobs. But still pretty good.

Next job

re-install the air filters. First, hold them in the sun, Leo to make sure they're dry.

"How much longer???"

"About a half hour."



"Just kidding! "



They're starting to understand Uncle David's warped sense of humor.

"Who's going to

put the goop on?"

"What's goop?"

"THIS is goop."



"Try and keep it off your face, sweetheart" (Aunt Francine)

Let's wash that mud off

"Here, get underneath, like this"

After lunch

It's time to ride the bikes over to the storage, and drain the gas / carbs.

"Can I ride the motorcycle?"

Uh oh. "I don't think so, you don't know how."

"But I know how to start it; press the red button and twist the handle."



"Um... you don't have a helmet."

"But I do. A red one. I'll get it."

Hmmm.

"Here, see."

"I don't think you can ride it, you can start it again, but I think you're too short."

"No I'm not! "

"OK, ok. I'll tell you what. We'll put you on the bike, and if you can reach the pedals you can ride it. We'll try Blueberry 'cause that's shorter already. How does that sound?"

"All right."

"Leo."

"What?"

"I don't think your feet reach the pedals. Let me try to stretch your leg. Nope. Doesn't reach. Sorry."



"But you can help me back it out of the driveway ."
