yesterday was my sister cara's birthday and as a present mom offered to stay with w and d while cara and steve spent a weekend in napa valley chillaxing.
so today, with parents out of town, we partied in palo alto! mom, in from santa cruz, provided the mac and cheese, sarah and i drove down from the city, and sister nancy, jeff, a, and b traveled the few blocks from their own home. good times were had.
on the way back home, sarah said that mom said that my sister lisa said that p, one of two new nephews in new york city, said his first word: "cat." apparently he said it twice.
the little ones are growing so beautifully and so quickly.
