On Wednesday, I took a lovely, long bike ride up to Midtown Crossing and back over lunch, passing through some quaint neighborhoods along Turner Boulevard, including Kathy Bates’ house in About Schmidt.
Then that evening, we all went to Vivian’s parents’ house to celebrate Jack’s 78th birthday. The kids got some quality time with their fairy village as Jack grilled some lobster tail and scallops on the grill. Vivian helped in making some of the sides, such as truffle-dusted baby potatoes and a vegetable medley. Then we all had dinner out on the deck, finishing it off with some chocolate cake and presents for both Vivian and her dad to cap off the evening.
