Kids for Obama

August 5th, 2008 (11:59 am)

current mood: calm

Last weekend I attended an event in my neighborhood organized by a group called Mamas for Obama. It was a pot-luck brunch held at a playround. Actually, I almost missed it because I was supposed to be sitting at a table at the Del Ray farmer's market as a volunteer for the local Democrats, handing out bumper stickers, candidate brochures, and voter registration forms. But that was canceled at the last minute, so I headed over to the park to see what the Mamas for Obama were doing.

It was fun. The kids made posters (they're being used to decorate campaign offices) and played on the swings and slides, and the parents (dads as well as moms) wrote out postcards thanking newly registered voters and encouraging them to vote for Obama in November. My son didn't come; he was busy playing kickball with his dad and some friends, so he wasn't in this photo, which is displayed on a state campaign website. Aren't they cute?
