Getting older starts by being younger
It turned out to be quite a lovely weekend. It started with a birthday party for my nephew Chandler who was good enough to let us each have a bite of his General Grievous cake (frosting painting done by my bro. Jared and was quite accurate). The grown-ups sat and talked about vampire books and football while the little kids played with another park visitor’s dog and played on all of the recycled playground equipment (even if we didn’t contribute to the materials does it still mean we’re doing our part for the environment?)
The un-planned event for the weekend was the visiting of our new twin niece and nephew at the hospital. Mike and Melissa had their twins at 35 weeks and they seem to be doing fine. Their son was in the NICU but was doing better and their daughter seems to be doing quite well, though was a little put out by my camera’s flash. Her dad, Mike, tucked her blanket a little snugger and she went happily back to sleep. Very cute babies and I can’t wait to see them with their eyes open. Melissa was pretty tired and so we didn’t get to see her. A c-section will do that to a person or at least the pain killers after the surgery will.
