It rained for like three days straight... hope it is over for a bit now. We've nailed down the dates for going to South Carolina to see my dad. I sent a few birthday presents on to them so they will be t here and we won't have to take them on the plane. Esme had a great weekend with the J family to celebrate G's birthday. They went to St.Louis Zoo and had a blast.
The car has a name - it is Lydia. I'll just not go into explaining but it has stuck and that is its name. I've ordered some special bumper stickers that will make 'reference' to the name as an in-joke between Mark and I. Let's just say she was the topic of a song on the Muppets, and the words chosen are from that song, although that song is not why I named her Lydia in the first place.
