Sunday morning we headed into the City where we spent Mother’s Day at Mom & Dad’s with Ryan, Makiko, Evan, Owen, Audrey, and both grandmothers. Mom prepared an incredible brunch taking into consideration the diet that I’ve been trying to adhere to with an organic asparagus quiche, organic potatoes, and fruit…always looking after me! Happy Mother’s Day Mom, Grandma Auble, Grandma Hoefen, and Makiko!
It turned out to be a really nice Spring day, so after breakfast the party moved outside where we all soaked up a little vitamin D. We mostly enjoyed watching Evan and Owen learn to kick a ball and blow bubbles. Meanwhile, I worked on my own little trick: a forearm crutch handstand. Evan and Owen have seen me several times since my amputation, but apparently didn’t even notice my missing leg. As we stood outside, Dad asked Evan where my other leg was, and it was interesting to see his reaction. It was as though we were playing some kind of magic trick on him. First he grabbed my pant leg, and then looked inside as if I had retracted and hidden it. Another great day with the family.
