The Politics of Summer

We visited our favorite former neighbors in their lovely new home, and settled in with a water gun battle. Finn wasn’t so sure about it.
Thea polished her chops (while her nemesis prepared).
They called a truce and shared a water Barbie.
And dined together at the kiddie table.
They marveled at the rainbow jello mold…
My first jello mold! I’m so proud!

It was hard to say goodbye. Nobody wanted to wind down for the evening, especially when there’s still full sunlight at 7 p.m.
In other news, Jason tackled the Glow Run, both in helping to host it for the fourth year and – for the first time – by running in it!
After 11-1/2 years at EPLC, I left, and a few of the people I’ve worked with over the years got together for lunch.
Finn’s friend’s older brother turned four, and there was a petting zoo at the birthday party.

And there were Huggies to drink (but Finn wasn’t really into it)!
Nothing says ‘summer in the 1980s’ like kids drinking Huggies. It must be summertime.
