Labor Day

Aaron and Diane took William and me to the Franklin Jazz Festival for Labor Day. We staked out a place on the steps of the old courthouse where there was a nice breeze and hung out to listen to the live jazz music.

The other good thing about our little spot was there was plenty of room for William to run around. And dance. And run around. And dance.

And we all did our fair share of chasing William around--and helping him go up and down the courthouse stairs.

William had a pretty good time, we all agreed. He didn't have to sit in his stroller the whole time (anathema for the busy toddler), and he liked the music. He clapped every time the rest of the audience clapped, too. And sometimes he was just moved by the music and clapped anyway.

And after the whole thing was over, we came home and ate barbecue with David and Mark. Not a bad ending for a nice day!

What a wonderful day! I must admit that y'all had a better day than we did! We just went to WalMart! Love, Moma Judi

It was a pleasant, informal venue and William really seemed to enjoy himself. Hope we can do it again next year. Oh, did you mention how he loved walking up the big steps to the courthouse and knocking on the door. You don't suppose he's thinking of career in the legal field? He was also intrigued with the height of the pillars and the clock we could see only when we moved farther away form the building. We had a great time!

With love,
Mama Dee

Wyckoff & Wyckoff Attorneys. A pretty good name. Granddaddy Aaron should have the photo of the two of them on the steps of the courthouse. It would go nicely in his office, I think. I especially like the deer-in-the-headlights look on William's face as he is being "helped" down the stairs.:)
