Yet another year

As you know 'tis the season of birthdays here at Ferretworld and we celebrated another one this week.

It started, as is the norm, before dawn (!) with the present-opening. I think he was pleased yes?

As it's a school day Adam got to celebrate his birthday at school. This year the birthday ritual is rather more low-key than last year with a parent coming in to read a favourite book. Here is Adam with his teacher:

The main excitement started after school when we headed out to test the new birthday present.

We had a private lesson with Finlay and Henry and so the boys had the park to themselves.

They all tried out some ramps.

We came back home for some cake - banana cake this time.

We wrapped up the day with a tour of the festival-of-lights in the park. We noticed more sponsorship than in previous years - but a better display. We particularly liked the dinosaur den! What says Christmas like roaring dinosaurs?

I'm going to have to finally give in and take skateboarding lessons. I'll probably stand out just by being a girl, so why would being 10-15 years older than the other students make it any worse?
I can get around without falling down, but I don't know how to do anything cool.
