i've been quiet on here... but for good reason! family has been in town and goodness has it been nice. we've sat and drunk coffee, we've had lots of cousin-bonding time (see above!), we've gone out for burgers and beers, we've gone to barre classes together, watched movies, had dance parties, we've celebrated birthdays (lindsey is THIRTEEN), walked in town, dreamt up travel plans, and we've doted on the sweet new addition to the family--anders! parker has requested mame and foot rubs at bed time every night (and this is after, over the last few months, i've tried to give him foot rubs only to be told to "do it like mame does!"). and there's something really wonderful about your parents and your kids having a special relationship... especially when those parents don't live nearby. it seems that now we're just picking up right where we left off, and i like it that way.
love you guys. thanks for coming.
