Around here, we have been having a lot of fun. One of these days I am going to learn not to plan everything to the "T". Because things never turn out as planned. Regardless of changed plans, Preston's birthday was a lot of fun and a little crazy. We painted some pottery, ate sushi - which Elliott loved (!) and did the whole singing and presents bit. On Friday, Elliott and I rode the train to meet up with some good friends. Apparently, he misses riding the trains back in Manhattan. He loved it! The last picture is Elliott's attempt at solving the problem of not having any coins to play the claw game at a restaurant. He wasn't successful, but he gets a gold star for his determination and creativity.
