Rollercoaster (of love…?)

Here is Olivia’s latest art project – a mini rollercoaster, complete with twists, turns and–notably–fire.

  

When I inquired as to the terrified rider, she told me, “That’s you, Mom!” Rather than link to the supporting evidence, I will just share the artist’s rendering…

Ava had a nearly month-long birthday celebration (with more to come) for her 10th year. Double-digits are a big deal for kids, and this felt like a real milestone from my perspective, too. Ten years! Ten.

We began with angel food cake at my mom’s early in the month, a family tradition I’m so glad she carries forward.

On the 24th, we bookended the occasion with blueberry pancakes and dinner with Tom and Katie.

Happy birthday, Ava! I can’t wait to see what the next decade brings.

Bryan fix

With bonus Owen. 

  

The fix 

Olivia, to Owen, after he expressed serious concern over what must be a relatively new sensation: “You know what gets rid of hiccups? This!”
