|Celebrating with a free sundae for my FIVE-year-old!|
Alrik and I had taken the bus to Portland to visit Ms. Amy Anktangle (yes, that's her real name),1 so when my computer went kablooey, I just had to chill out, disconnect from blogginess, and help her with her garden and enjoy her lovely family. (Can you tell I wasn't too sad?)
In the meantime, two more occasions joined Alrik's first birthday: Mikko's fifth birthday, and Sam's and my fourteenth anniversary. So yesterday we had a beach party to celebrate it all!
Despite the sunburns for the pale folk among us, and sand in strange places, it was a supremely lovely time. I just can't believe I have a five- and a one-year-old!
