I spent most of the day working on a play structure for the backyard. Most of my in-laws came over, despite morning drizzle: what with the various college sweatshirts and small talk about who’s company was doing what, it was somewhat like a yuppie barn raising. But nothing brings us all out like the opportunity to do something for the children.
