Aleks got himself all dressed to go outside to play. He has a unique sense of fashion.
The neighbors came out too with a tandem bike brought from a trip to New York. Aleks tried out the horn, which sounds like clowns are coming. I was confused about the origin of the sound until I came out to see it.
Bastian, with an equally unique sense of fashion (though I suspect his outfit was just utilitarian rather than planned like Aleks'), explored the neighbor's tool set. Learned about ratchets and the neat clicking sound they make.
Then I got to go for a ride on the tandem bike, something I've wanted to do since childhood. Managed this one before my 30th birthday, lucky me. Riding a tandem bike is not at all simple. Turning is difficult and not turning, as the rear rider, is even moreso, despite its importance (starting to turn will shift your weight, possibly knocking everyone off the bike).
Aleks and Bastian posed for a photo op. Having not yet managed two wheels and being quite short, they will have to wait awhile to try this out. Still, quite the adventurous lazy Saturday afternoon.
