Don't worry, I will take plenty of pictures! Today is my #6 child's birthday. okay, he's 22, he is all grown up. Today, we are going to Seattle! We will drive and park and take the metro, then walk down to the waterfront and take a ferry ride. What a way to celebrate your birthday, sightseeing with your mother. Aaron and I get along like peas and carrots. He is still sleeping right now, but I want to go down and get breakfast. I might have to risk waking him up, I can smell the Seattle's Best coffee, or perhaps I am just imagining it.
Tonight, we are going to a Mexican restaurant with Ben and Ashley and Anya, to officially celebrate the birthday.
We spent last evening at Ben's house. He and Ashley made pasta and meatballs, so Aaron and I brought over some wine, garlic bread, and salad stuff...and a FIFTY pack of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies....only SIX dollars at the Safeway. And believe me, oh yum. I am glad we have no Safeway stores in New York.
Anya enjoyed our company. She smiled for me, and played her little games. She is a smart little thing, she knows what's going on. I have tons of pictures, but my phone is on white noise right now, and I don't want to wake Aaron on his birthday.
The evening went too fast, we laughed and sat at the table solving the worlds' problems. No, actually I heard about lots of stuff I didn't know went on way back when...Ben was a teeny bit badder than I realized. phew, I am glad he somehow grew up into such a responsible guy.
Okay, here's the strange thing: I am here in Washington, the weather forecast for today: 59 degrees. Paul is in Florida, but heading home tonight. The kids are in the middle of a snowstorm! They will have possibly 2 feet of new snow by tomorrow. When I say "kids", I mean the nine left at home, and the oldest is 23, so they are fine. It's just weird.
I can't mommy every one all of the time:)
So today, I'll just mommy Aaron, ha.
