Hordes from Texas

We had some visitors to our suburban Washington enclave, and Pappy was in on the action. My wife's junior high friend, her husband, and six kids DROVE up from Dallas to DC for a vacation. We had them by for breakfast Saturday morning.

I broke out the bouncy ball for a demo of Pappy's exceptional ball-obsessed reflexes and willingness to chase 'til he drops. Given that we have no good toys, tossing the ball kept the little ones occupied. Apart from how nice these kids are, one thing that impressed me is that all of them could throw. Tiny Elizabeth had the kind of arm you don't see on many little girls.
