Play Day


A gorgeous day for late November, I talked the boys into a walk on the quad after lunch at the Noodle Company. They're pictured above at the Alma Mater. Though campus was relatively dead due to the holiday, we still had to wait our turn for this photo op.

Brian's doing his best Rocky Balboa imitation, after running up the steps of Foellinger Auditorium. Look. He really does have the eye of the tiger!

We walked, climbed on things, slid down banisters, chased squirrels, and just played for a little over an hour before heading back to the car. I made a few short movies of Brian cutting up. I talked him into dancing, on Wright street:



And here, messing around at Johnstowne Center:



It was just too much fun, doing so much of nothing today, with my son and his friends. His time is usually spread so thin, trying to see so many friends and family members. I was thrilled to have him to myself on Thursday, and this afternoon was an unexpected treat.

I can't stop smiling.

I've uploaded more whimsical pix of the day to my smugmug account. If you want to check them out, click here.
