This morning, I dragged my dear parents out of bed prior to 7am to make the drive into downtown Athens before we left town. I was determined to beat the 98 degree weather and get a picture of Parker at the Acropolis. They whined, they argued, they tried to weasel out of making the stressful drive and the hot 1000 step trek up to the summit, but I prevailed. In short, we went. We climbed. We dehydrated. Mission accomplished. Here’s the evidence from the trip and you know what? These pictures make it all worth the effort.

And look! Sensible shoes. I tell ya, I get brighter by the day.
