So… I didn’t have to ask Edgar more than once about the new Shaun White Supply Co skateboard line at Walmart.  As soon as I said Shaun White, his exact words were these: Everybody knows Shaun White!  He’s the best!  In all honesty, yo me quede kind of shocked.  I mean, I know he likes skating and going to the local skate park by our house, y toda la cosa.  What I didn’t know was just how familiar he is with the sport!  Man, you just don’t notice how fast these kids grow up!

Back in the day, the sport we always engaged in that my parents never fully understood was basketball.  They knew we threw the ball around and tried to get it into the net, but that was about it.  I kind of feel the same about skateboards and skateboarding in general, LOL!

The Shaun White line at Walmart.

I know what they’re for, and granted, they do look like a lot of fun… but for me, it’s more about making Edgar happy.  He enjoys learning and challenging himself, and that makes us happy.  Además they also get him good and tired, and ready to go to sleep 🙂

Edgar trying to make up his mind.

I’m only half kidding there.  But en serio, we went ahead and headed to one of the select Walmart’s in the area that is currently carrying this new line.  Of course, I was kind of lost trying to find the skateboards for kids section, pero Edgar knew just where he was going!

He was kind of torn between colorful and more plain designs.

Luego, luego, he started pulling out one skateboard and another, carefully flipping them over one at a time, to see what their design on the bottom side was.

Still looking…

I tried to get him to look at the cheapest skateboards I found, but him and Anjelica quickly pointed out, “those aren’t Shaun Whites!”

And finally he chose one!

And apparently they weren’t!  The Shaun White skateboards had the brand name written across them – clue number one – and they also had a lot nicer designs than any of the other skateboards in the store.  After contemplating over and over, about one design and then another, Edgar finally made up his mind.  His next question: Can I ride it when I get home?

He does have protective gear. He just ran out so fast these pictures were more in the moment and I decided to use them instead.  Don’t try this at home!

It was late already so he didn’t ride it that day.  The next day, though, there was no stopping him!  El huerco ya andaba en el skateboard as soon as he woke up, LOL!  He’s really been enjoying the #ShaunWhiteSupplyCo skateboard ever since!

From what I understand there will be a big ad in newspapers on October 28th to promote the new Shaun White Thrash Board.  I think that’s a skateboard, right?
