Yesterday, everyone gathered at Grandma's house to celebrate Mother's Day. (We plan to hit a fancy restaurant next week. Between the crowds on the big day and the traffic due to the Great Tennessee Air Show taking place in Smyrna, we figured it would be best to stay close to home.)
Last week, the grandparents bought a new scooter for my favorite neice and nephew to share. They loved it and they enjoyed riding around the driveway on it. And they actually did pretty well with sharing the scooter for the most part.
Gracelyn took the scooter like a duck to water. Davis, on the other hand, quickly figured out that all he had to do was stand on the scooter and hold on while Uncle Michael pulled up around the driveway and we made "vrooooom" noises. He thought that was an all-around good time, though you could tell he'd get disappointed when Uncle Michael had to do silly things like stretch his back a bit or catch his breath.

"Where's Uncle Michael to make this thing move?!?
I also showed Davis and Gracelyn how to slide down their small, plastic slide on their tummies, face first. Which delighted the both of them no end while it made Mommy roll her eye and go, "What is he teaching them now?"
