We broke out the water guns. I thought they would chase each other around the yard, but they mostly just watered the plants.

Jason came across the mask and snorkel sets we used on a cruise in 2010, and he adjusted them for Finn and Thea to wear.

On Saturday mornings, when Jason’s running group trains on City Island, Thea has begun tagging along for the first half mile or so.

And then the kids run their own races.
