Mother's Day

My Dears,

I hope you had an awesome weekend. I woke up on Sunday to hot croissants and a sweet card. Then it was off to Lord Hill Regional Park for a little hike.
It was a little buggy, which is not completely unexpected for this time of year.
Ben is enthralled by all things creepy, crawly, slimy and sticky. We kept him walking down the trail with new exclamations: "oh Ben, look, another slug!"  And lots of beef jerky.
The kid probably walked a mile, which is great, but it also made for a much longer hike, time-wise.
We were starving on the way home and decided that a burger and shake from Kidd Valley was definitely in order. Three guesses as to who drank the most shake!

Then it was home for nap time (everyone) and a dinner that night with my parents. My mom brought a great dessert: chocolate fondue with skewers of strawberries and mangoes. Simple yet so delicious! Definitely adding it to my repertoire, especially for big group dinners.
