Naked bike ride

Does it make us bad parents that we let our kids watch the naked bike ride? It was dark and really hard to see anything especially from the angle from the stairs.  In This picture you can see Gus doubled over laughing. Little Mimi kept yelling at the naked bike riders that they needed to put on a helmet. I guess she didn't realize most of them needed clothes too.

Wisconsin trip

In June we took a weekend trip to Madison, Wisconsin for a lacrosse tournament.  Kay's team,  St. Louis Elite, did respectably on this trip playing against some really good teams from across the midwest. They even received the Sportsmanship award.  I guess in lacrosse that means you didn't try to tomahawk a girl's shins or whack her in the face.  St. Louis has a budding lacrosse scene.  Kay learned to play lacrosse in CYC- we are lucky at St. Margaret's to have a great girls lacrosse coach, one of just 6 parishes to even have lacrosse as a CYC sport.  

Added bonus on the Madison trip- saw my childhood BFF for dinner, Gus got a hair cut at the Great Clips in Fitchburg and I saw this Red Apple Enterprises mansard on the road.

Still for sale

These mansards have been on the real estate market for quite some time.  I featured the Brentwood Boulevard and Big Bend buildings in 2009 and again in 2009.

Softball mansard

 Back in 2009 I reminisced about this little street off Old Warson Road in the Rock Hill/Brentwood/Ladue triangle (I made that up).  It is adjacent to Stroup Field where I played softball as a girl.  With the entry of our parish and many others into the South Central CYC district I now find my daughter playing there too.

This mansard is the mirror twin of the house I featured in 2009.  The girls below are Audrey and friends.  These girls are good at many sports, but I tease that they are really good at sports they can play at age 30 while drinking beer:  volleyball, bocce ball and softball.
