A father and son playing at the Ballard skate park bowl when all the sk8trs had abandoned it for the day. The boy would slide to the bottom, run around a bit, then dash quickly to get enough momentum to scramble up to the lip. Sometimes he would succeed unaided, and other times dad would assist in pulling him out. . .or dangle him back down again to his delight. My inner-mom's note to self: take time to play and connect everyday before they are outtahere.
