talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Making supper in the morning & eating ice cream before dinner

Wow! We had a really big day today but have no pictures to show for it. Coming off a girl-weekend with Grandma and Toot Toot, we headed out this morning to have a Cooking Day with Teresa and Robert. It was a lot of fun for everybody, and we're looking forward to trying it again. The kids had a ball while Teresa I and baked a lot of meals ahead, and divided them for the freezer. Hooray for that! After cooking our families sat down and shared lunch together. Thanks, Robert and Teresa, for a great day.

We got home just in time to play with Jessie and JP. They took us out to ice cream, where Fiona devoured a Blue Moon ice cream cone (what exactly is a blue moon supposed to taste like? We discussed this for quite some time...) and Nora ate a cotton candy-flavored cone. Don't tell her this, however. She ordered Bubblegum but never noticed the discrepancy.

After a delightful ice cream snack, we enjoyed an invigorating romp in the park. It was too lovely a day not to soak up some of the crisp, autumnal air with friends. We had an amazing time with you, JP and Jessie. Though I forgot the camera and wasn't able to snap a single picture to preserve the afternoon, we'll have a day to remember without it. Thank you for taking time to stop and pamper us!
