Natty made a cake. Jon made a giant dinner. We had eggplant Parmesan, roast chicken, and pesto. Heather and Steve came by for dessert and our friend Emma came by for dinner. Emma goes to boarding school here and is Piddy Peddy's daughter, so it's nice to have her visit now and then and be part of a (semi)normal family life.
After the kids were asleep and my parents had gone back to their hotel, everyone did this. Like they do all the time.
