There is something you need to know about Baylands Nature Preserve: It is really smelly. There are some standing ponds right next to the parking area that are very unappealing to be around.
But if you can get past that part, it’s a really cool place to visit! It has a variety of hills (which makes it great for riding bikes), some interesting art installations, geese, and some paths that take you next to the water (not the smelly water). I went running there once (and quickly realized that running during pregnancy wasn’t my thing), and we’ve been twice for bike rides with T1 after he received a balance bike for Christmas.
I picked up a pair of low-cut Hunter boots at Nordstrom Rack, and they’re the perfect shoes for bike riding (because he can drag his feet as much as he wants) but they’re still a bit big for him which meant a lot of pit-stops to put them back on. This annoyed him, but is good for us because that kid is fast and we had a hard time keeping up with him!
Does anyone else think his helmet is on backwards? I bought it at Goodwill and it’s a bit too big and I need to add in some extra padding, and I think he keeps putting it on backwards. No instruction manual is the drawback to buying used in instances like this.
