I'll begin today's post by touching on the last part of yesterday. We touched down in DC sometime around 8:30pm and were received in the airport by two babysitters... pardon me, by Tia Marco and Tio Frank who brought baby car seat and assorted warmies for Radar. As you can see, Radar was far more interested in the car seat cover than in meeting his tia and tio. So be it.
We then headed to Tia Babysitter... oops... Tia Sara's where a feast awaited!
Although everyone enjoyed the main course, the really delicious part came when desert was served.
Yes, we had a Radar salad. Yum!!!
We then finally made our way to Marco & Frank's Washington Cottage for a midnight bedtime.
As we made the 45 minute drive back to the cottage in the car with Tia Marco and primo Xavier (Frank and Marco's 3 year old), I noticed that the two of them were wheezing and coughing and snotting the whole way. "Past the contagious stage," she assured me.
Welcome to this morning... I saw Abuelito Tribi first who kindly backed away from me and Radar saying that he's got a cold, "or something." Tio Miguel is on his way over - he spent the night at Tia Sara's because the Benedryl he had taken for his cold and allergies had knocked him out. Oh, and meet Sharon (Frank's sister) and her 7 month old Conrad, both who just finished their round of antibiotics and are also "not contageous." So in a house packing 12 people, 6 are snotty.
Lots of love,
Titi and Radar
PS - To ensure that Radar doesn't forget poor Fantango, Barack Mojito made the journey from West Virginia... he's snotty too, but I don't think it's contageous!
