May Day Brunch

The first Sunday of every May we host our annual May Day brunch and group trek to the crazy liberal May Day Parade that ends at Powder Horn Park, just down the way from us. Here are a few photos from our lovely day...

I have not made any for myself yet, but they do seem a little complicated. Luckily, my friend Adrian seems happy to take up these tasks upon request--not so bad for a guy who is a motorhead and engineer.
