My Rag Tag Crew.

The other night Jeremiah and I took the whole super human crew to a little parking lot down a few blocks from our house.
We must have been a rag tag looking bunch, Jeremiah was carrying his skate board and a Diego three wheeler, Max was riding her Dora three wheeler and both Rose and Olivia were carrying their skateboards.

I was the only one without wheels, the obvious outcast.

Oddly enough we had a blast. Just down a couple blocks from our house, with the same equipment we all play on all the time, running around and playing in a parking lot.

So here's some bits and pieces from our night... Check out Elijah's kick ass hat, he loves wearing that thing. He won't wear any hat I make, or any hat other than that one. Silly Boy.

Wow..what a cool memory moment. It's so great to see you making memories with the little yard apes...before they get all teenage and surley...and remember...'Surely looks out for only one person...SURLEY."

You cats sure know how to have fun. We used to play in the huge parking lot across the street from our house in the projects when I lived in Detroit when I was a young boy. I loved it.

Family.

Next time you should really accompany them on rollerblades. For completeness and (I imagine) comedy value.

Cal: My hope is that they'll be delightful and not at all surley as teens...hopes are usually cruelly crushed though, right?

Doc: We did have a lot of fun, it's pouring down rain today...no repeat fun, I'm afraid.

Ms Moon: I love them!

Mo: You have no idea how hilarious it would be to see me on roller blades. I am the world's clumsiest person...hands down.

Isn't it just the way - the night at the parking lot is always better than the one at the super-fancy park.

You all seem so happy; really, really happy. Always remember to take pictures of these moments; one day your kids will look back and remember that their parents spent time with them playing and just having fun.

That looks like a fun night! that last pic of the kids sitting together reminds me of times in my childhood where i'd be with my 3 siblings and cousins or whatever goofing around outside having the best time of our tiny little LIVES! the BEST feeling :)

Looks like you all had a lot of fun, even if it was a parking lot! And amazing that you were able to get everyone to do something at one time!
