T-Ball Catcher

Ivy surprised us and has begun reading the titles on her freshman summer reading list a bit early. Apparently, she plans on starting The Member of the Wedding sometime next week.

Oh, mother, I see you standing there before me offering quartered grapes and wilting on this sultry summer's day. "Don't sit down! Let me drink you in first."

This guy is AWESOME. When does his next book come out?

Lakeside dancing

Summer is finally here in Madison. For the next 3 months there are monthly outdoor music festivals in our neighborhood and last weekend we kicked off this joyous season with the Riverfront Festival. Ivy loved kicking up her feet and showed the stroller set that she has incredible sense of rhythm.

When she wasn't focused on her solo performances, she danced in the shade of lakeshore cottonwoods with her daddy. . .

. . . and waved at the all-girl Zydeco band while dancing in the blazing sun with her mommy.

We're looking forward to shakin' our booties all summer long and to continually introducing Ivy to the ways of the East Side.
