My cousin and her growing family are in town from California. They met us out on the boat in Pirate's Cove Saturday afternoon and we celebrated Chris's birthday that evening at our house. On Sunday, Jill and I went to the Berkley Common to watch the firetruck parade before the muster began at 1. Jill's face when some of the firefighters started hosing down other kids was absolutely priceless. Complete fear and amusement at the same time and I've never seen her run so quickly! Sunday afternoon the kids played in the frigid water, chased bubbles and bounced fearlessly on the trampoline. It was a really fun weekend catching up with our family from the opposite coast!

Who knew that advancing from junior kindergarten to kindergarten required an extensive and very entertaining ceremony on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in June (when the boat is in the water). Other families dragged multiple generations along and saved seats, but despite the annoyance Jill was adorable. And we're incredibly proud of her and what an enthusiastic learner she has become!(First pic illustrates the hazard spellcheck + an Italian last name)
