Cameron's new toy

Cameron wanted a skateboard for his birthday, and we said we would get him one when we were back in Berlin (A skateboard would take up too much room in the luggage from Melbourne, that's space I could use for Milo and Vegemite!

So, yesterday went to Karstadt. After 1/2 hour of pulling all the boards off the rack, turning them over and finding "just the right" design, we bought this one.
As an extra measure of protection, we bought all the pads as well...(even though we live a 5 minute walk to the emergency department at the hospital.)

Once we got home (and swept the path from all the Autumn leaves that had fallen in the past 24 hours), he tried it out. As Cameron is our "extreme sports child", he wanted to be able to go really fast right away. So, it took a lot of convincing to get him to practice getting his balance going slowly down the path that has a tiny slope to it. He is starting to get the hang of it, and learning how to move his body to turn it.

He hopes to be as good as his cousin Dylan one day!
