Sorry about that, folks. I wrote Saturday but obviously meant Sunday. I changed it :-)

Could we have the temperature turned down? I'll be there, wearing my Stanford cap for sure!

It was so much fun! The only down was the bounce house was sitting in the sun and me and my son immediately burned the living daylights out of our feet and legs-not smart to put it in the sun!!

How cool would it be: for the clubs that sponsor the school car washes, to have their car wash on the day of this yearly big Car (et al) event. Huge influx of traffic into the city today, and probably could have washed a ton of cars. Post kids with car wash signs on the main drags in and out of town. Realistic suggestion ?
