We went to the Labor Day picnic yesterday and had a good time -- free hot dogs, corn on the cob, chips and beer, rides and games for the kids, and a collection for the striking Northwest mechanics. The only thing missing was ice cream.
We went to a nice malt shop and got the kids some cones. Maia did pretty well with hers, identified by color (pink) rather than flavor (strawberry). She licked it into a sort of swirly peak, held it up for admiration, and cried, "Look what I made! Say hooyah!"
