we all got together this morning at nanny and pop's house (my parents' house) to have pancakes and celebrate nanny's birthday. we thought we were surprising her, but i think she had us figured out! the girls go nuts for pop's pancakes. grace says he makes the best pancakes in her whole wide life. it is amazing how many pancakes those two can put away! maybe it has something to do with the fact that pop's pancakes are homemade and have butter and syrup. the pancakes at our house are whole wheat, and they come out of the freezer. who can really blame them?
after breakfast, we went outside to swing and play in the backyard. apparently my dad is the only one who is qualified to push the swings. they don't want me anywhere near their swings. if i get too close, they yell, 'no, we want PoP to push us!!'
it has been less than two weeks since mom's heart surgery, and she is doing pretty well. catherine and grace just don't quite understand why they can't leap off the couch into her arms, though.
