A pretty fun time again this year. My brother and his wife hosted a costume party and because Cheryl is a breast cancer survivor, she requested that each costume contain a touch of pink. I carried around a baguette and sang I Want to Rock 'n' Roll All Night in French (Je veux du rock 'n roll tour le soir, et jeter tour la jour). Olivia tolerated me taping a photo to her chest without trying to rip it off. Saw a lot of family and friends. Good times.

Kelly dressed as Supergirl for work and a party, whereas I dressed as the dumbass who foolishly waited until the last minute to buy a costume and found the store sold out. :-(

Where's The Winch?

We took the girls sailing today. Unlike last year, Olivia did not throw a winch handle overboard because of our diligence in preventing it. The sailing is still free because of the heart of the owner who offers this once a month during the summer. Go »
