About a month ago my good friend Shruti was in town from Texas, along with her husband, Arun, and their two beautiful children, Rashmi and Naveen. So we, along with my good friend Aimee and her husband Jon, met at Keehner Park. Shruti’s brother Uday and his wife Alisa also were in town and so we were able to meet their beautiful daughter Sophia.
It was hot—oh, so hot—but we had a most enjoyable afternoon (even after Sophie had her first public accident, in the playground tunnel nonetheless—thankfully a ridge of plastic kept Rashmi from getting wet). We ate brownies and watermelon and exchanged belated birthday presents. The visit was too short. It always is.
