Mother's Day with Pepsi and Grape-Nuts

Yeah, here's a snippet of our Mother's Day . . . perhaps it will become an annual tradition?

The Grape-Nuts were prepared by M; the Pepsi was provided by S. We also had Mon Petit cupcakes after supper . . . mmm, those are so good! The kids made homemade cards and notes, of course, and S got to take a longish nap in the afternoon.

The nap came after a family excusion to the local skate park; B has been wanting to try out some moves on his bike at the park all week. Here he is:

B's cautious personality combined with his desire to do all sorts of fancy tricks results in some pretty pedestrian riding -- which is okay by us. He wants a skateboard pretty bad, despite the fact that his mother had a horrible accident on one as a child. In the meantime, he's set up a ramp on the sidewalk in front of our house, and practices carefully riding over that.
