Lulu's 5th Birthday Party

I think Lulu's 5th Birthday Party was the most successful kids party I've ever thrown.  Lulu invited 5 of her girlfriends over for lunch, they played paper dolls, then we hopped in a limo (easiest and least time consuming form of transportation for all 15 of us, also the wildest limo ride I've ever taken) and headed to W 131st St for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Madame Alexander Doll Factory (vintage dolls galore, sooo awesome!).  The end of the tour left us off in the gift shop where we all shopped for dolls.  More pics here. (photos are in a really random order, sorry)

Connecticut Road Trip

We packed up the fam and spent the weekend in Litchefield, CT at the home (with guest home for us) of our friend Peter.  We visited his home last June and once again, it was a perfect weekend in the countryside, complete with the discovery of wild asparagus, delicious food and more amazing Peter stories (oh you know, for example, we learned his father's cousin was Cary Grant).  More pics here.

Scooters

A few months ago, I bought Nessie a scooter like Lulu's.  I hadn't given it to her until tonight.  I was tired of the two girls fighting over Lulu's scooter, so I told Nessie that I had a scooter for her.  She was thrilled.  While I opened the box, she was screaming and laughing and making cute sounds only Nessie can make.  When I opened the packaging, she looked at it and said, "oh no, broken" because it came in 2 pieces.  The girls rode around all evening, Lulu only once tried to trade up for the "new" one.

It's 11:30pm, and I just checked on the girls in bed.  Looks like they are taking great care of their scooters.  Lulu's was even wrapped in a blanket.
