Thursday night we headed into Bethesda to do a larger family celebration of Bette’s 80th birthday. This was held at Mon Ami Gabi. Vince was very excited because they serve steak and we very rarely have beef in the house. We are a chicken, pork, fish house.
The famous profiteroles.
Edda loved her shrimp and polenta. Recently some nights, she’s been a picky eater and not eating much of her dinner which is very unusual for her.
Jeremy and Christine (talking about Vince).
Friday morning started off very early with kittens.
I headed to Baltimore with Adriana’s family (Adriana is one of Edda’s weekday evening caregivers) to see her graduate summa cum laude from nursing school. The ceremony was long.
We had lunch near the water where in an unusual move, I ordered at drink at 11 am. Note: I had no alcohol at 7:30 pm the night before with the steak dinner, but happily ordered a mojito at 11 am with chips and guac. Must be something about the guac. Adriana’s family is lovely. They like to rock climb and were giving me some tips.
Then I headed back home and took a quick nap and then packed up Edda and some stuff and headed to Virginia to meet Vickey’s new guinea hen.
Edda and I are sleeping over to wake up bright and early to celebrate the royal wedding. We started celebrating by eating pie.
Edda’s first sleepover! Kind of. It feels that way.
Karuna came over for dinner, but we couldn’t convince her to join us for the sleepover or the wedding. Boooo.
