Short Ride Saturday

Beautifully sunny weather here in Colorado, with temperatures projected to be in the high 60s to low 70s and slightly breezy.

Meandered about the southern half of the Metro Denver area, no particular destination in mind as the nearby mountain peaks were not very scenic due to the haze of the day.

Ended up in the Denver Tech Center, across from the entrance to Westlands Park for the usual picture of Mount Evans through the gateway arch that is the park's entrance:

Around 11:30 AM, I arrived at the Cherry Creek School District's main campus where my youngest son Miles' Lacrosse team was playing a match against Cherry Creek.  The team didn't win today though, in fact, it was quite a lop-sided game in terms of scoring.  Still, the boys are out there playing, hopefully giving it their all and hopefully learning sportsmanship along with getting some exercise.

That's Miles, in the red uniform.

After the game, Miles rode home with Martha since they'd driven to the game in Milli, the PT Cruiser.  I loafed on home as well to get lunch and a nap.  The weather, yawn, is just too nice and warm.  I might wander out later in the afternoon, to give Brigitta, the '87 R80 Airhead Beemer some exercise.

"they'd driven to the game in Milli, the PT Cruiser"

Does this mean that Miles is learning to drive?

Yep, RichardM, learning to the loosest sense of the word....let's just say he needs a lot more practice.

Poor, Dom... no more snow to play in ;-)

Still wrapping my head around the fact that one of your boys is already old enough to drive. Time flies by.
