Yes, the good old Little League Fair behind my parent's house...ahh the memories. This was the first year that MaryJane could actually ride the kiddie rides and she was thrilled. She rode these motorcycles about 15 times. My neighbor, JoAnn, said she was monopolizing them so the other kids couldn't ride. There were new sponsors this year so none of the fun stuff was offered (beer tent, big wheel gambling, etc.), but it was enjoyable for all intensive nostalgic purposes. And we got fried dough!

MJ, myself, and our Nick finally took our first hiking trip of the summer at Lake Minnewaska. We stopped at the mountain store first and got the best fresh pesto sandwiches while MJ napped. Then we had a little picnic on the lake where MaryJane persisted on convincing us why she needed to get in the lake. We didn't let her strong-arm us this time.
On the rest of the hike, after convinving Nick to let me push the carriage to exercise my upper body because I hate the gym and never go, we dodged hairy eyeballs and snickers from other male hikers, like..."Look at this schmohawk..."
Sorry Nick, you can push next time!
