marathon fun

Quick summary of the last 5 days, evidence of marathon fun:

Saturday - our 7 year old's soccer game in morning, then Martin's Fantasy Island (amusement park - that's my kid in the middle of the Beanstalk ride in first pic - it's her favorite ride, can you tell? - next to our friends)

Sunday - Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts - in particular, we attended the performance of the Mary Ramsey Trio, with our friend Craig as guitarist (right), Mary (center) who was the original lead singer of 10,000 Maniacs, and Dr. Mark the chiropractor as guitarist (left), my first night of hives

Monday - visit to daughter's school to meet new 2nd grade teacher, shopping, pediatric dentist visit to extract infected baby tooth, another soccer game in which daughter played less than usual due to tooth extraction, my 2nd night of hives

Tuesday - the Buffalo Zoo in morning/early afternoon (lovely weather, picnic on grass, giraffe feeding, greeted former student who now works at zoo), dinner and movie (Mamma Mia!) in evening with friends, my third night of hives

Wednesday (today) - picked up school supply kit from PTA at daughter's school (pre-ordered and paid in June, eliminated store shopping, for better or worse), the Erie County Botanical Gardens in morning/early afternoon (pic of the lovely outdoor children's garden above) with picnic in outdoor shaded garden area, NO hives
