Monica and Inshal texted this picture and called about a month after arriving home from their honeymoon! We are grandparents!
She had the usual morning sickness, and was absurdly tired, falling asleep everywhere. But nothing made us suspect twins. At her initial OB visit, there were clearly two active babies, both measuring appropriately in size.
Maybe it's because I grew up in Ann Arbor, maybe it the beautiful architecture, but I enjoy activities in the older University of Michigan facilities. We are not exactly a hockey or skating family but we enjoy open skate at U of M's Yost Ice Arena. It's rich in U of M hockey history. When we skate there (the kids. ... me on ice?... shudder. I wouldn't risk a broken bone), we feel the years of people's hard work training for a sport, we also feel many years and generations of people just having fun, like us.
Kevin took some kids up north to visit his extended family and explore the family farm, still farmed by his uncle and cousin, and the Mary shrine, built by many of his uncles and grandfather. Deep Michigan roots! The Frank and Judy branch of the Galbraith clan. Kari, Kevin, Bill, and Frank.
The Old St. Patrick Choir (Blaise and Regina) sang Arvo Part's St. John's Passion. They did a beautiful job with a very hard piece.
Palm Sunday St. A's schola concert. This is the only picture I took. You can see Blasie still smiling there after singing two concerts and Palm Sunday Mass.
Fun at the Lugnuts opener
Here we have the rare Orange Cat Tree, infrequently seen in full bloom.
The little girls enjoy being at the theater during tech week as much as I do. While we were right there,I took them out for some fun at the natural history museum and a walking tour of U of M's campus.
