Dayton Lane May Promenade

The lovely Robin and I had a blast--and nearly walked our feet off--at Sunday afternoon's Dayton Lane May Promenade in Hamilton. We toured a dozen historic homes, many of them sublimely restored with period furnishings and filled with fascinating history. 
We enjoyed the music of the Fort Hamilton Jazz Band (above); man, those guys have chops! Folks in period costumes, old-fashioned bicycles, and horse-drawn carriage rides also contributed to the setting and the celebration. I only wish the more than 700 people who enjoyed the tour along with us had stayed out of our way. 

Flowing Grace Dance Recital

The lovely Robin and I accompanied the Ohio branch of our family to last Saturday's Flowing Grace School of Dance recital, in which our granddaughter, Calleigh, was a participant. The best one, actually.
It was a program full of music and dance. Calleigh got to dance in three numbers, in both her ballet shoes and her tap shoes.
It was a great time with great people supporting a great dancer. Disappointingly, however, no one asked me to dance. Guess I'll save the leotards for some other occasion.
