four years ago (!), I have helped to organize this event. And just as I wrote back then, it has continued to be a truly fun time.
It helps that we are surrounded by happy families who genuinely enjoy being there. It's one of the first events of the school year, before we are over it all. The weather was glorious, too. And this many years in, we know or at least recognize a large percentage of the group. That's a great feeling.
