We had the coolest surprise yesterday on our way home from school. Axel was riding his bike - as usual - when a Ramsey County Sheriff drove by. We were just yards from our house but the Sheriff turned around, pulled up to Axel and said, "I want to thank you for wearing your helmet."
Axel was in awe. He really loves police officers! The Sheriff asked him if he would prefer a Wendy's frosty or a Dairy Queen treat for being so safe.
Axel chose Wendy's and the Sheriff handed over 2 coupons. One for him and one to share with his brother.
LOVE this. Axel is a kid who seriously ALWAYS wears his helmet - often indoors, at friends house and at the park. He never takes it off! It couldn't have happened to a better kid. Ollie on the other hand...time will tell. Hopefully Axel will remind him that the Sheriff is watching and you had better keep that baby on!
