Can the heart get any fonder?

Rowan and Saoirse spent Friday through Sunday with Grandma and Grandpa Haack. It sounds like they had a good time, they got some new toys and pj's, played the piano like Jerry Lee Lewis, dipped their toes in the fishpond, and wore out Grandma and Grandpa.
It was nice to have some time alone with Chris. We went out for dinner Friday night with Reema and Bav and went shopping and had brunch on Saturday. Chris got to see a band, watch a soccer match, and go golfing with friends today while Reem and I had lunch. I got to go to the library yesterday and read two books in a row lying on the couch. Pure luxury. We did discover that we're old, because on Friday night we didn't make it to bed until 1 am, and despite our best efforts we were unable to sleep past 9 am. What's up with that? When I was a kid I didn't really understand what older people meant by that. They'd say, "I just can't sleep in." I'd think...what do you mean? Just close your eyes and fall asleep, what's so hard? But at 9 am we were both lying wide awake, staring at the ceiling. We just had to give in and get up.
The girls came home this afternoon. Although it was nice to have a break, I miss them when they're away. We had a big evening, Saoirse took three steps!

And anyway, there's no better way to spend an evening than this. Who wouldn't miss this kid?
