Circling back

On our Saturday afternoon bike ride along the Burke Gillman Trail I missed a turn and called back to Henry, "oops, we need to circle back." A few seconds later I felt his little fingers lift up my tee-shirt (he was in the toddler seat on the back of my bike), and he started tracing circles on my back. I thought at first, "oh cute, he’s tickling me," until I realized he was following my instructions.

We had a glorious ride. Went all the way to Golden Gardens, where we watched people on the beach while Henry collected rocks.
