This bowl is NOT for cereal…

I spent a few hours this afternoon in St. Louis Park playing with kids. These kids are amazing. They were all 12 and under…and could skateboard like nobody’s business.

There was a kids skateboarding competition going on at 3rd Lair. This is an indoor skateboard park. It was actually really cool to see. I had heard of them from going to our State Fair. They have a bowl, a terrain park, and a small lip room. I watched the bowl competition. Today was the King of Groms competition. Some of the contestants were only seven years old. Their skateboards were as tall as they were!! Here are a couple of really blurry photos. I had to take them with my camera phone.

These kids blew me away. It was great to see them jumping, sliding, and just generally having a good time. At the very end we even saw a ten year old dislocate his elbow. We all thought it was ok but then he let his arm go. It just wagged back and forth from his elbow. Uck…there was a big “OH!!” emitted from the crowd. He didn’t even cry. He must have been waiting for the car to let the tears roll…
