Yesterday was Patrick and Lilly's birthday, and their party. V and I went early to help keep them occupied while their parents cooked, cleaned, and set up. It was mostly family, with some little kids: their friend from across the street with his parents, and Essie and Anne with their parents.
It was phenomenally fun. We wouldn't have missed it for the world. We both felt like part of the family; there was even a moment where their mom was telling everyone how great I was.
We're visiting (extended) family now, and having a blast. That's why this is short, but know that I'm madly in love with my twins. And my wife.
