We have begun using this photo as a meme — I think it sums up my experience thus far perfectly. All photos by author unless noted.

I’m sitting in the backyard with four other people. Two of them are my friends, Chase and Michael. The other two are infants.

Don’t worry, the babies aren’t randos — we know these lil idiots. Chase has a one-year-old and I have a nine-month-old.
