Fazal's most recent typing
[By banging on the keyboard he comes up with funtions we would be really interested in knowing how to do, but don't. He has also learned how to turn the computer OFF, being attracted to the glowing blue light - not such a good thing.]

Taking a rest at the Madison Farmer's Market, which is set up around the beautiful Capitol building. It was a beautiful day and a nice place to relax and see the city in action. I had heard sometime ago in a story, I think it might have been Garrison Keillor, that one particular uniqueness to Midwestern farmer's markets is that everyone moves in the same direction! And sure enough, the hundreds of people there were all walking slowly, quietly counter-clockwise, nobody in a rush, no pushing - a study in culture (Dude, I used to live near the farmer's market in Boston, and it was just loud, organized chaos). Only mishap here was that I left my purse, that contained both of our wallets, my phone AND all three of our passports in the Capitol building!!!! I had a total panic attack and raced into the building, only to find that someone had brought it to the reception desk and nothing was missing. Thank you, mystery person.
Rumi and Fazal seemed to agree that there's nothing better than chewing.
Check out that identical profile

The Best $5.99 We've Ever Spent
If you don't believe me when I say it's hot, remember I lived in Israel for 3.5 years, and this my friends, is worse, because of the humidity. Thanks to the splash pool, good times could still be had despite the horrible heat.

Next Stop: Iowa!
The dads on a walk around the neighborhood.
And in the same town in Iowa we got to see Susan and Elijah, who are expecting their own little bundle of joy this summer. We sadly don't have a photo of Elijah, but we really were so happy to see you both!!!! We know you are going to be awesome parents.
