The Back Story

Since school was closed Friday for a conference, we met Noah & his twin brothers Nate & Hayden at the zoo. The kids had a great time despite slightly cold & rainy weather. Along the way, Greta fell & bumped her knee. It was the kind of fall that my hugs could not fix. She called for Ella to come back & give her a hug. Instead, she got 5 little ones running toward her for some hugs. I thought the banner pic of Hayden sharing a little love was perfect for Valentine's Day!
Nick & I celebrated last night with sushi & a night at the movies. We saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I can't remember the last time I cried that much. I think I woke up dehydrated. Nick didn't get what the fuss was. The story centers around our mortality & spans the life of almost all of the characters. I found it sad. And a bit long & slow. But, worth seeing in the comfort of your own couch - so if you are like Nick, you can doze off comfortably or, if you are like me - you can watch the movie without worrying about how puffy your face is going to be.
