I will pose for a picture...

...but that doesn't mean I have to like it.

Ethan enjoyed the MAC exhibit of the Sue T-Rex replica, but he wasn't so crazy about the dino dress-up room. I know, I'm a terrible mother.

Every cloud has a silver lining

And funerals are, at least, a great excuse for getting cousins together. Ethan has met my cousin Terry's kids once, and this was his first time to meet Eric's kids...who live in SPOKANE, for crying out loud. He is crazy about the whole bunch of them. I will do better in the future.

There is no easy way to do this, so I'm just going to put in a picture of the gravesite.

Claire's medieval birthday (more)

Potions to concoct (even if they were too scary to drink), dances to learn, fair maidens to battle over, a guy in tights, tons of really good food...and a bunch of dads standing around discussing Linux. In other words, your usual medieval-themed event. I made the brown knight's costume in the van on the way to the party. Fortunately, it was a long drive.

Country roads

Usually, the street in front of my parents' house is so busy that I'm afraid to cross it. But this week, it's all torn up and a great place for biking in the evenings. Ethan enjoys chatting with the workers during cigarette breaks.
