Hey Mom, wanna go film?

Stopped down to the Crooked River Skatepark to show a friend the park and came across a scene that would get anyone hyped up.  A Mom filming her son mid-day at an empty park in 30 degree weather.

I’m not sure how many of you ever said the line “Hey Mom, wanna go film?” but Christine (the filmer and the assumed Mom) probably hears that allot.  Based on her filming form and the fact that it was 30 degrees out she is down.  She even had the wherewithal to keep the minivan idling with the heat on in the parking lot.

I doubt you would have come across a similar scene if they would have built a bocce ball court here instead.  This park will be a re-awakening of this Flats area of Cleveland.  Here’s to all the Mom filmers out there…
