The kids were all sorts of jealous. What they didn’t know was that we had asked whether the triplets were old enough and big enough to ride a segway because we thought that would be a fun group birthday present this year while Jason was home from college.
Here are some pictures and video from that day.
First the kids had to be taught how to ride the segways, then they got to practice in a square around a fountain. Jenna was scared in the beginning but after a while they were all confident.
For the tour with the kids we skipped the university, but we still got to go by the Portland Loo, a public bathroom in a greenspace downtown.
When we went down to the river we passed an apartment building that had a moat around it.
We had a great view of all of the bridges.
We also passed the smallest park in the world. Seriously.
When our tour was over we got to ride our segways around a parking garage while the tour guide was putting the first few away and settling up with Russ. We decided that the cool Portland tour was just a bonus—they were equally fun in the parking garage.
I don’t know when or where our next segway tour will be, but I’m sure there will be one!
