Beloved Oma

After our quick trip to the south of the state, we returned in time to celebrate my momma's birthday.  It was a quiet affair - I am the only sibling in town - but we had a nice time.  Pizza at their place, followed by a pinata instead of a cake.  I guess my mom thought it would be more fun for the kids, so she and dad went to Zurchers (I don't know how to pronounce that either, by the way) and got a nice little pinata and then filled it with about 10 pounds of the best candy they could find.  It cost them about 60 bucks or something!  Kind of funny.  But yes, the kids loved it.  We also showered my mom with gifts - the sharpest cheddar cheese we could find, tools for her aquadoodle set, with which she loves playing with the kids, and a lovely little scarf that I am now coveting for myself.  My birthday is just around the corner......

I love Stomper's wind-up to whack the pinata. How much further back could he reach??

I absolutely adore your mother. Happy birthday to her. :)

I love these pictures! Especially your kids attacking the pinata on the ground! It looks so helpless just sitting on the ground instead of hanging from a tree. The picture of your parents together is priceless. So natural and cute. I want a picture of John and me like that someday.
Hope all is well!
