Welcome
"Welcome to the Radke Beach Day!" Andrea shouts. "It's a great time to be in the Radke Lab!"



master cooks
Anuj and Divesh, along with Luis, fight with the grill to get it going... (The fight was eventually won, but everyone was pretty hungry by that time. Niki and David upstaged the master chefs with a quicker grill lighting later.)



Fight! Fight! Fight!
Mark, Luis, and Heather battle it out in the water. They were disputing which years were better in the Radke Lab: 1999, 1998, or 1997.



He started it!  No she started it!
It was finally decided that every year is a good year in the Radke Lab, but the blame for who started the tussle continues...



men and their beer
What would a Radke outing be without alcohol?



Radke friendship
Good Radke students. Good Radke Friends.



Um.... veggie burger.... chikpatty.... yummy
Niki watches over the veggie patties for Rebeccah and Divesh. The meat was on its own.

The whole gang relaxes and eats lunch.

And now the kite saga begins.....

(in 8 easy steps)


step 1:  get kite caught
Mark got Hez's kite caught in a tree. A masterful move.



step 2:  the men act like fools
Luis helps Mark climb onto the tree to get it out. (Only the first of many kite-catching attempts.)



step 3:  the men act like fools
Javit leaps over all others in an effort to get the kite.



step 4:  the men act like fools
While the rest of the men try jumping for the kite, Divesh, holding on the end of the string, keeps pulling it out of their reach.



step 5:  the men act like fools
Anuj makes Divesh get on his shoulders in order to reach the kite.



step 6:  the men act like fools
Anuj tries to jump up (with Divesh still on his shoulders).



step 7:  the women watch the men act like fools
Janet, Hez, and Niki watch the men.



step 8:  the men are proud of their accomplishment... of acting like fools
Finally the men are victorious when Anuj climbs into an adjacent tree and jumps to get the kite.
