A four year old and a BMX park. What could possibly go wrong?

Last weekend, the kids and I rode our bikes over to the BMX park in town.  It’s about a 3-4 mile ride (I had no idea it was this far when we told Michael he could go the first time) to the west side of town.  I don’t think I’ve ever been to a BMX park before and when I saw it, I immediately worried for all of the kids.  I was fairly certain that if there was one of these near my house when I was growing up, I would have had way too many broken bones.  It looked pretty intimidating at first, but then you see an 8 year old fly up in the air and you feel better, knowing that there’s no way your kids could get air like that. Michael, being the great big brother nervous nelly that he is, insisted that Henry watch the other kids go first.  Here are videos of Oscar, Elizabeth, and Michael teaching Henry the course. The older kids were so excited for Henry to go, but they were certain he was going to bite it.  After all, he’d only been riding a two-wheeler for a whole 22 days
