Crazy Summer of Fun
well, two weeks of crazy fun
at Grandma and Grandpa's, Rootstown Ohio

Our trip to visit my folks in Ohio ends tomorrow with a long trip back to Kyoto. I've still much to post from this short two weeks, but here are some random photos to fill out my last night...

We ended up visiting ZipCity four times. I posted about it earlier, and will again I'm sure.

Race Results
First place overall, and third in age group
5キロのレースをやって、兄は一位に、義理妹は年齢層の三位を出来ました

My brother Mike and his wife ran a local 5,000-meter race. Mike came in first overall, which is better than he did earlier in the summer in an 56-mile ultramarathon. Chickee came in third in her age group.

Photo Op for Mommy

Mike offered to give Anthony a ride, but Anthony declined. Maybe it was because the tractor was too slow after an experience like last spring's go-carts at Adventure World, or maybe it was just because the zipline was too fun.


Comments so far....

In “Me and Anthony” it seems that you are falling faster than your shadow. Weird. Do you know the Lucky Luke cartoons about the guy who is known to “shoot faster than his shadow”

Hey Jeff!

I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation for your photos of my precious Grand-babies and for taking the time to document your (and their) two weeks in Ohio. Both Lindy and I get such pleasure from looking at your fabulous photo work. I always leave this site with the biggest smile on my face!!

Best,

Dr. G. (A.K.A. “Opi”)
