Here is a family photo from Gita Nagari Ratha Yatra which I just lifted off of Kiriti’s blog –a blog which no longer allows comments (boo hiss). My husband’s smile is real, since he was doing seva steering the cart. Mine is totally contrived, since I just lugged two hot and tired kids up Govardhana Hill to sit in the dry, prickly grass as the sun beat down on our heads. Oh, did I mention we had no water (just ran out when we got to the water station). And no balloons. Apparently, for my kids, the balloon shortage was a life threatening emergency.
