Sunday celebration

After a good breakfast of pancakes and sausage

 a little creative art work
and a bowl of fruit pablum for a growing boy 

we were off for a hike in  the bush

Mommy and daddy in the lead

What could make the hike even better...a feline tour guide

This fella seemed to be everywhere
Doesn't he remind you of my kitty-client, Billy seen in the side-bar?

Uncle Mike explained how maple syrup makes it to our tables.
Riley was very intrigued.

And after the hike and a huge breakfast
all the guys needed a nap

Mama & Mama-to-be 

Gotta grab these photo-ops when you can.
It was a fun way to celebrate our son, John's birthday.
"Happy 29th John"
Time for cake.
