our favorite babysitter

a few weeks back, ned and i had tickets to see nickel creek in concert (haven’t heard them? do yourself a favor and listen), so we did what every parent of a young child living in a big city does when they need a night out: we called a grandparent who lives 1,700 miles away and asked her to fly out for the weekend. we sweetened the deal with a caspar babypants concert, a belly with baby kicks to feel, an ice cream outing and by allowing her to buy us all sorts of delicious foods. we’re the best. and so is grandma. (and the concert was fantastic, too.)

the day my mom arrived was art walk at josephine’s school (or, as josephine explained to anyone willing to listen: “there’s a celebration of art at my school and it’s called ‘art walk.'”) so we had some culture and josephine showed grandma around the classroom. the weekend also included a picnic at the park, a ferry ride to a fabric store, and some bread crust fangs. we can’t wait for the next visit.

    Joey’s quite the photographer when I let her steal the camera from me. 🙂 The baby’s due September 24th — another September birthday!
