Memorial Day
last update: 05/25 @ 19:52

We met up with Sue and Evan at the Vienna Festival today. There was lots of fun to be had — even though it was a hot day. They had lots of rides and most of them were for the younger set.

Lots of fun was had by all. The adults were able to join the kids on some rides (and I think Sarah’s slide scream was the winner for the morning).

Of course there was cotton candy as well — and a misting tent — it was hot, but not hot enough to make these two guy sweat that much. It really was lots of fun. We got there early before the crowds had grown too much and parking was too hard to deal with. I can certainly see us going back.

And, of course, Robert and Evan really liked a chance to hang out together. It’s been harder than expected to arrange a play date.

I sense trouble

It’s been too long since I played chess; Robert almost won this game. Well… he almost played to a stalemate.

Our temporary digs during remodeling work. It’s pretty nice but I really like our house a lot.

One of the many fun things we crammed into a very short visit in Boone was a trip to the Lowe’s Build and Grow clinic. Robert picked up these cool goggles while building a planter for Sarah for Mother’s Day. He was telling us on the car ride back that he can wear them while looking into all the dusty parts of our house now that the new bathroom construction is well underway.

Just for fun…

Aaron was showing Robert that Mentos and Diet Coke really do set off a cool geyser… Robert picked up a book on volcanoes and so this seemed like a natural progression. Now he wants to show the same trick to all his friends…

String Theory…

Helen teaching Robert how to do “Cat’s Cradle” (I think). Aaron, by they way, has taken to reading the Ashley Book of Knots — might have something to do with Robert’s new fascination with knots.

Too inside a joke?

No alt tag here, move along please... I spotted this on the wall of a government building where there are some folks doing work on accessibility. Much of 508 accessibility work (by no means all of it, but the most common tasks) is making sure that the information sighted folks receive is the same as the information those with vision problems receive. To that end, all graphics in web pages have to have an “alt” tag with a helpful caption — exactly as someone has carefully written a description of the cartoon before pinning it to the wall (you can click on the photo for a larger version, in case, you know, you have trouble reading the small text). Now in this case the written description (which screen reading software can’t read, because it’s a cartoon pinned to the wall and not electronic) seems perhaps less helpful…

Having a good idea who the primary audience of this web site is, I violate that rule — just in case you check…

(I did warn in the title that it was an inside joke.)
