We've had a lot of family in town lately, so we were able to A) get out on a date for our 6 year anniversary (a brief stint at the uptown art fair, then Chino Latinos for supper, and Stella's rooftop for beers to end the evening - just like the cool kids, minus Jenny this year who was around for our anniversary last summer and we did almost the exact same thing, but earlier and with a baby!), B) mom and I made it to my brother, Stephen's, 9Tomorrows concert at the Loring Theater the night before as David graciously offered to stay home with Mia,
and C) spent a family fun day with David's folks on Sunday - exploring the childrens' museum,
enjoying the beautiful weather and some excellent pizza and ice cream at Punch and Grand Ol' Creamery, and even managing to tear out a few bushes in our front yard while Vicki and I watched Mia play with her water table. In among all of that, I taught the last quarter of the general microbiology course for undergrads at the U, got back some results from a big experiment that I submitted in April, and hopped back into research mode while I prepare to lose my only labmate this week as he's starting grad school himself this fall. It's been a whirlwind the last couple of weeks! In addition to all of the family fun, we were able to sneak down to meet Ryan and Emily's new baby girl, Jenna! So precious! Can't wait until she's big enough to play with Mia!
