I was on my way to an editorial meeting at the newspaper, saw this incredible photo op, and made the decision to be late.
I'm so glad I stopped to shoot photos; turns out the editor didn't run any in that issue (apparently "the News has told that story before"), but I hope you enjoy them anyway.
Here's the cute kids part: kindergarteners from Little Star Montessori were there watching too. Sheesh!
