Cheesecake and two wheels

Today Kristi and the munchkins went to Northville for its Tuesday kids concert. According to them, it was packed with kids, mostly from a day camp nearby. They were bigger and kept moving around quite a bit. About 20 minutes before the end of the show, all of them mysteriously left. Otherwise, they said they had a good time.

After the concert Kristi took Noah and Mikayla to the park around the corner from the concert and there were those same swarms of kids again! She said there must have been at least 150 all on the playground at once. It was crazy.

By the way, did you feel that ripple in the aether? That was the effect of one of Kristi's heartstrings tearing as our baby boy maintained his balance and momentum using his own power on just two wheels of his Lightning McQueen bicycle. No training wheels and often not even needing a start from us! We are so proud of him!! He still has some work to do with his turns and avoiding obstacles (he came about an inch from running directly into Mikayla and her tricycle), but he did an awesome job :)

It's National Cheesecake Day today, and boy did Kristi do a stand-up job today. I came home from work to the smell of Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast in the making with sausage and hash browns to boot. It was dee-licious! One recommended serving is a piece of french toast cut in half and put together like a sandwich with a cheesecake filling in between and covered with a sweet strawberry topping, whipped cream, and powdered sugar. I scarfed down two of them without pause or regret. For dessert, we had frozen cheesecake sandwiches, which are kind of like ice cream sandwiches, but more tasty.

All for now, but more tomorrow. Until then...
