Lake Jackson This Weekend

There's more to this photo than meets the eye.
Jacob was a little out of control,
so Papa Ben and I tended him and brother Nathan
while everyone else went to a pool party.
It's not so bad staying home with us.
I let him watch the movies I brought.
Ben bought him a hamburger.
Nathan truly loves his mother,
but he tolerated us.
He exceeded my abilities as a diaper changer.
I had to ask for help.
After the party, and after Matt had mowed his share of the lawn,
he and I played chess.
Matt and I are about at the same skill level,
so he had to think hard.
But I had to think hard when I played Will.
In my defense, playing chess with Star Wars pieces
puts me at a disadvantage.
I thought Han Solo was a rook instead of a knight,
a fatal error.
Melanie and I enjoyed a calm, quiet game
of Chinese checkers.
Dave has the most interesting things in his coral tank.
This is a tiny starfish which came out from his
hiding place among the corals.
He even turned around for us.
