My sister Lindsay is a dancer, choreographer and videographer (among other things). Last weekend we stayed with her in the live/work space she shares with her fellow artists and performers in San Francisco.
The studio was clear for most of the weekend, which meant the boys had plenty of room to move and dance and play, which they do so naturally.
When the sun came out, we left the studio and meandered up the hill to the neighborhood park for yet more movement. I spun the boys so fast they both flew off the merry-go-round. I guess that's why I don't see those much anymore, huh?
I'm afraid I have a lot to learn from my kids on the subject of movement, since my main interest was in consuming twice as many calories as our walking burned.
We stopped by a French boulangerie for a bagful of pastries on our way to the park. Or maybe the bakery was the true destination, and the park merely a beautiful setting for our consumption.
Either way, the day was inspirational.
