Emy is back home 🙂 Vince and I went to the Northern Dutchess Hospital for play group! He had a lot of fun there. In the afternoon, I drove around in the snow and made salmon dinner for everyone 🙂

We went to Kingston today and the oldies radio station gave a shout-out to “Doris in Kingston”! How did they know. We all went to family therapy and had lunch at a wonderful deli/pastry place. This afternoon we went for a doggie walk and had a nap.

Vince is one today. We celebrated by taking his sport utility stroller out for a walk at Poet’s Walk. It was very slushy but the dogs enjoyed it. I walked 10,000 steps today according to my pedometer!

Vince’s birthday party! We had a Texas-style chili cookout tonight with a bunch of friends and all 4 grandparents. Lots of good talk and fun. Emily decided today to move back to NY, so plans are being made about where she will sleep because almost all the beds are full here!

A snowstorm came in today, so Vince and I stayed home and puttered. We are starting to work on day care stuff for Vince so I can start looking for work. We got the B.O.B. sport utility stroller today and tried it out on our evening walk. Plowed through the snow just fine.

Went to State College, PA, home of Penn State to see Sylvia, Bob’s mother. We stayed in a little house next to the retirement home that she stays at that is very much like the home we are about to buy. Seth, Christine, George and Jane were all there and it was a lot of fun and a bit stressful and tiring also. Bob babysat the kids and we all went out and sat around at Starbucks and talked and talked, it was nice. Vince was very good in the car, we switched the seat around to forward facing, we also got him his very own cell phone.
