I just love this photo–it’s so perfect it deserves its very own blog post.  If I was going to pick 1 photo for a painter to use to paint the portraits of these young chaps, this would be it. 

Well, I should say it’s nearly perfect: Fergus is missing. He got up from the table to look outside at some ducks who’d come exploring from a nearby pond, snapping up bread crumbs from the tables outside this restaurant. He followed them too, as they waddled down the block. You can tell that D is distracted–see him looking past the camera? He’s watching Fergus.

I had to high-tail it down the street just after this photo was snapped.

You can see where he was sitting though, just to Dashiell’s left.
