Where's our raquets, Dad?

Imaginary Raquetball game

A visit to the Raquetball courts

After some Father's Day swimming at the UMD Natatorium - (thanks for
charging me $14 for the first time ever to take my kids in: happy
freakin Dad's Day to me) - we looked in on some people playing
raquetball, and then the kids ran around in an empty court.

Thea merry-go-rounding!

We had a lovely morning at Watkins Park.

Liam wanted no painted pony

We saw Peacocks and Peahens...

...and even some baby Peachicks (quite different from chickpeas).

Ponies are serious business...

but still fun.

From Carousel horses...

to the real deal: in this case, Missy.

Graduating Friends

Jacqui, Zakiyah, Thea, and Wendy

Kindergarten Graduation Party

Wendy and Thea love Ms. Cassi so much. She is a good teacher - nice balance between expecting a lot from her students, but inspiring them to live up to the expectation.

Wendy, Jacqui, Thea, and Talu

I'm not exactly sure if I spelled some of these names correctly - I
think I got two of them!
