Allie came to visit and she was nice enough to plan that visit for part of the time that Russ was off in Brazil. We had a lot of fun going to the zoo, dollar movies, sluicing for gems, perusing our life and science museum and eating a lot of good food. I loved having the company and knowing that she was down the hall, like the good old days. I hope she had a good time too between a bunch of meltdowns, my retreats to an early bedtime and two mounds of poo left by Luna. Yes, two mornings we both woke up to the wafting smell of Luna's poo. Both times there was a pile of poop on the kitchen floor. Yumm. I think Allie told me in all seriousness, her last day here, that she was planning on having one child. I'm sure that my sweet, wonderful children had nothing to do with her thought processes.

Genevieve's favorite room is the butterfly garden. I have mixed feelings. When we were at the museum in the middle of winter, the girls and I were the only ones in the whole place. I'm telling you, these North Carolinians are sissies. It's forty degrees and sunny and they don't step outside. Well being the only one in the butterfly area has it's advantages. One of the workers caught some butterflies for the girls and let's just say Gen picked it up extremely quickly. The worker even praised her efforts. So now, every time we go there she catches a bazillion butterflies and I get dirty looks from all the other parents. So I sit and I squirm and I don't know what to do. Nice old man, you've put me in quite a conundrum.
