1. I made it safely and easily back from DC. For once I wasn't completely exhausted and was much less frustrated than after my February trip. Hooray!

4. So, then, M, Mom and I went to the Myriad Gardens Tea Party. It was delicious and great fun. I am glad we went and love the three - generational picture. (You can read more about our adventure here: Tea for Three
9. Today, I've spent an inordinate amount of time planning both M & E's birthday parties. I suddenly needed invitations for M's unplanned party in August to give to her friends from school who she was seeing for the last time for the summer. I then invited Elsa to come and am sure it will be lovely. After that, I realized that E's party was only a few weeks away and maybe we should invite people to that too as August is quite a bit further away. In short, it was a strangely birthday day for us in May. (Audra's B-day is on Thursday- so happy early birthday Aunt Audra!)
