A few weeks ago Hannah, Caroline and I took Des out for her birthday. The tearoom I found online wasnt exactly what i had envisioned, but we had fun doing a girl thing. Hopefully it'll be a tradition. \
We also went to a pumpkin patch that weekend, and both Hannah and Charlie had their first horse riding experience. I missed it because i was feeding Caroline, as I miss out on much of life during the first year of each baby!

i've discovered that the easiest way to get kids to eat their vegetables is to have them prepare them with you. my kids always beg me for whatever i'm choppping up, even before its cooked!
all in all, we're doing well. Patrick is working long hours these days, we miss him. And I'm pretty sure its mutual! The big news of the day is, I only have 2 more days of babysitting. I was planning on quitting in the spring, but then it worked better for the family that we stop now. So, maybe i'll take more pictures throughout the day :-). I had a wonderful time visiting Lara in Boston, Meghan and Reese were there too. The logistics of 2 little babies on different schedules (or no schedules), and getting around the city with 2 strollers, made for an interesting trip. But we did get to eat alot of great food! And see some beautiful leaves. I did take a few pictures. many thanks to david and des for keeping the kids some, and then to patrick for doing a great job after that. the house was very clean and even smelled good when i came home :-).
