This past week we've been partying like it's 1995. Not really, but we've had our share of fun moments. On Tuesday evening, we picked up Andy's parents @ the airport. The next morning, on Grace's bday, she wanted to open presents first thing. Can't say that I blame her.
I was contemplating on just splurging on a cake for Grace, since we weren't throwing her a party. So I went into a local bakery to inquire about one of those barbie cakes. You know which ones I'm talking about? It has an actual barbie doll surrounded by a beautiful, elegant dress made of the cake and frosting. I about died when they told me that it only cost $80! So I decided to splurge on a very well-crafted, beautifully made, homespun cake. And she was just as happy (priceless)!
Next on our agenda for fun was visiting the Natural History Museum (Grace's pick). Here are my two little statues posing (it was my favorite exhibit).
During the rest of their stay, we had grand plans-o-fun, but alas...Grace's cough turned into a fever, which we are still battling. So we spent a lot of quality time at home, watching movies and playing the wii.
side note: before Grace got sick, Kathy and I got to go to a taping of the Ellen show (sorry no pics). It was so fun to be able to spend the day with her w/o little interruptions (thanks to Dan). And I swear I burned 500 calories just from all the dancing (before the show, during commercial breaks, and after). If anyone caught Friday's show w/ Jimmy Kimmel we were the ones in the very last row in the top right corner. Did you see us?
