Home again, home again, jiggity jig

We had a really nice vacation this year. All of our kids were there except Patrick.  He is in the process of moving back to St. Louis, so he could not come.  Kate's boyfriend, Michael, also did not come.  He had some business obligations he could not miss.  Nevertheless, we had a good time.  The kids are big enough to go outside by themselves, except for the two babies, and they all get along pretty well.  We ate out a couple of times, once at Lulu's where we always go and Tacky Jack's where we also go every year.  Jo hn and Chellie got barbeque one night and Rob cooked another night. We started the week with Julia's first birthday, and we ended it with Kate's forty second birthday. 

Although it was a good vacation, it was really nice to get home.  I've spent the past couple of days weeding our flower beds--which could be a full time job.  Patrick is staying here while waiting for his piano and stuff to arrive from New York.  He got a really nice apartment in the central west end.  We're giving him a couch, kitchen table and chairs, lamps and coffee table.  Some relatives are giving him a desk, desk chair and love seat.  He still needs a bed and a car.  It's nice having him home.
