...then it all went horribly wrong!

Another happy day at the skate park - the sun was shining, the birds were singing, the small boy was hooning around merrily! 

There isn't much in the world to make Jarvis smile as much as a trip to the skate park. He absolutely adores the expanse of concrete on which to ride his bike. Much as living in the countryside makes for some great adventures, riding bikes isn't really one of them. A gravel driveway & a vineyard aren't the ideal riding surfaces for a bike such as his. 

I nipped down the road to pick up some fish and chips for lunch, leaving Jarvis & his Daddy enjoying the morning...little did I know that when I got back...

OUCH!! Disaster!! Roly poly activities on a bike are not recommended! Chin scraped, nose scraped, bit of a bump on the forehead. Fortunately very short lived pain and suffering, by the time I got back with lunch he was zooming around again with a crazed grin on his face. After getting over the initial shock, I just can't stop laughing at that photo! He somehow chose the perfect facial expression to frame his wounds for full dramatic effect! 

Today he looks even more fab, with the scrapes starting to scab over. I think this means he's officially a proper boy ;)
