today in palo alto, my nephew d turned four.
an inflatable pool, sprinklers, and some water soaker thingies turned cara and steve's backyard into a summer wonderland. there was also a scavenger hunt, a piñata, burritos, and popsicles. and sun - lots of it.
our present was four matchbox cars from my personal stash. i'm not so good with presents but this was a real winner: d asked his mom if he could sleep with the cars. it was a fine birthday.
