Bicycling is one of the best ways to get exercise, see the sights and
reduce your carbon footprint. However, bicyclists face a host of
hazards. They often must share the road with vehicles, and injuries can
happen even on a designated path.When children are riding bikes, always inspect the following prior to riding:
The seat should be adjusted to the proper height and locked in place
Make certain all parts are secure and working properly
Check that the tires are inflated properly
Make sure the bike is equipped with reflectors on the rear, front, pedals and spokes
A horn or bell, a rear-view mirror and a bright headlight also are recommended
Always wear a helmet
Our friends were so happy to learn some safety tips, as well as exercise during BIKE DAY!

Since opening its doors in 1991, Nashville Zoo has grown from a small,
private operation located 30 minutes northwest of Nashville to an
AZA-accredited facility that welcomes more than one million visitors
each year, while being involved with international conservation and
research efforts to save threatened species.
Our friends enjoyed our special guest visit from the zoo so much! They brought a chinchilla, a snake, and tortoise, and even a skunk!
Sound waves are formed by objects vibrating (shaking back and forth). Sound waves travel through air, water, and solid objects as vibrations. When they reach our ears, these waves make the delicate skin of the eardrums vibrate. The brain recognizes these vibrations as sounds made by different things.
Our friends in Toddler 4 had so much fun creating "sound waves" with water and toy boats!
