The kids got scary amounts of candy this year

saw The Watch tonight

Milan, Italy's Genesis tribute band not only does a great job evoking the classic Gabriel era performances, but also write original songs in the style of early Genesis, and do it seemlessly and brilliantly. I bought one of their original CDs called The Vacuum. Can't wait to hear it.

It's sometimes scary how much their singer sounds like Peter Gabriel, but it's pretty awsome, too. I never saw Genesis, or solo Gabriel, and these guys performed tonight what I imagine the sound of a Foxtrot era Genesis show would have been. They said they are planning to come back next year and play Selling England By The Pound - I look forward to it.

What goes up...

The kids had a blast today, even though it had to be a short (half
hour) blast, on the moon bounces at College Park Day. It was held on
Thea's school grounds and hosted by the College Park Community Center
right across the parking lot.

...must come down.

and that's the funnest part.

Thea got to play with Jacqui

They are fast becoming first grade BFFs.

The big slide

This was the first ride of the day last weekend at Kinderfest 2010.

Action shot

I love the stompiness caught in this picture - they had so much fun!

An alternate take

There was much bouncing and fun last Saturday! Here's some proof. I
think Liam had paused to tell me something, like, "we're superheros
and we have to save the world," or something.

Midlake is great

They're from Denton, Texas. They evoke lots of great 70's bands I
like. It all comes round.
