Descartes' Birthday Present to Me


I forgot to post this earlier. My birthday is in February, but it took a long time to get framed.. so very kind of him, it's the cover of the book Can I Sit With You? Descartes is always good at thoughtful gifts... for Mother's day today he managed to find good candy corns (in May!) a kumquat tree (one of my favorite fruits), and we went together on a family adventure up and down the Peninsula searching for and eventually buying backyard patio furniture.

That's blood on Jake's face. He started bleeding while we were in Ikea. He wasn't upset, just sort of cracking up (which is, now that I think about it, a way that he deals with pain ugh.) We sort of made a hurry up decision and got out of the gigantor store instead of fighting our way back up to meatballs in the cafe which we had planned on (Lucy was singing a meatball song.. poor girl.)

Instead we drove the kids through McDonald's. Lucy and Jake were pleased to see chocolate shakes, and Jake apparently has entered a new level of eating.. he now eats like a man. A man. Crickey he ate a 5 piece chicken select meal with a bloody mouth. Lucy then proceeded to pour nearly an entire shake down the front/side of her. We heard a large "Uh Oh!" as we had started to drive away.
It's a little blurry, but here's the photo...
