Park Pictures and an Observation

Ruby, Steve, and I attended the 30th birthday / “Thank God Andreas isn’t dead” party on Saturday at Seward Park. (The latter is a reference to a recent bike accident.) An acquaintance of mine from Jobster, Ben, was quite taken with Ruby and snapped a ton of pictures. He posted the best ones on his flickr account.

Here’s one of my favorites:

I also wanted to note that I’ve been astounded lately at Ruby’s patience. We’re discovering that she often just lies awake in bed after waking up, rather than calling for us right away. She’ll just lay there and look around at the patterned fabrics (sarong, stripey thing on ceiling) and think her thoughts. Sometimes she’ll occupy herself by trying to catch hold of her feet. She can do this for a long time before getting bored.
