First Organ Shop tour

My father's shop had their largest piece ever ready to ship out (to Wisconsin), and only partially assembled as it was just too big to fit in the large assembly area. Decided this was a good reason to get Zach up there for his first tour; he was duly impressed, though he did not like the Vox Humana pipes - thought they sounded like chickens, which of course, are scary. And was a bit disappointed that he was not allowed to climb the high ladder to the upper decks.

Salem Willows in the rain


As seen from the railing on the pier (set up by Josh) between downpours, chop suey sandwiches, a semi-functional high-speed merry-go-round, and a singing monkey machine. Meg and Yash head south to DC next week on new adventures, good luck!

Bus Test Drive

At the "Touch a Truck" event in Charlestown last Sunday. A simple, brilliant concept: gather a bunch of cool trucks into one parking lot and open it up for kids to crawl around on them.

What we didn't account for is how Zach would react to a parking lot full of ambulances, police cars and fire trucks in which an unspecified number of children might be allowed to push siren buttons. That is, with much whining and clinging. He didn't even want us to put him into the bucket on the bucket truck, sit on the cement mixer, or explore much other than the back of the UPS truck and the free samples from the ice cream truck.
