re: Re-living the Dream

Okay. So I am in Ohio right now reliving the best reunion trip of 2006 where I got to spend time with my BFFs from grade school Quinn and Danielle.

So as to not break from tradition...
1990:

2006:

2008:

A reunion tour again, so soon? We are as bad as the Rolling Stones. (Also, why haven't I done a better job of making my bangs less stringy in the last 2 years?)

This time, though, there were two babies, Amelia and Abbey. This would make a great movie plot, don't you think? "Three (wo)men and two babies." Has anyone thought of that yet? Imagine the hijinks that would ensue!

(I would tell you about some of the hijinks if I hadn't pulled a michael jackson with amelia and got all my baby holding privileges revoked.)

Mostly, Amelia ate a lot of food, but was really cute and happy while doing it.

And Abbey sometimes pretended she didn't speak English when I told her to do things that she didn't want to do. Which is a pretty good trick that I might be adopting.

Anyway, I really love Columbus and the Midwest and keep discovering new reasons why. For one - this brilliant larger than life topiary recreation of Georges Seurat's impressionist painting, A Sunday Afternoon On The Island of La Grande Jatte, located behind the lovely Columbus downtown library.


Even more amazing was this guy at the topiary painting a painting of a garden based on a painting. Did I just blow your mind? Sorry about that.

I have a few days left here, and though it seems like after the topiary garden things couldn't get any better, there is always the World's Largest Apple Basket a few miles from here. . .

we will wear our matching PJs next time, Q.

and marsha - how dare you blaspheme the Apple Basket. I am sure the good people of Ohio would cry to know that you think their basket, and their huge apples, are fake.
