We don't see enough of our friends L&J, so when J proposed an all-family sleepover last weekend, we immediately said yes. Little Miss E is about two years younger than D, but they get along quite nicely, which meant that the mommies could all sit around and talk. Lovely. The next morning we went to a playground and then our little family headed off for my requested birthday brunch on the Moshulu, an old tall ship that has been converted to a sumptious restaurant.
D had the time of his life exploring every nook and cranny of the ship (although he proclaimed the slanted foredeck "too tippy"), and the brunch was out of this world. This ship was damaged by fire a few years after my arrival in Philly, and was only re-opened for business a few months before I left to become a Jersey Girl. Finally getting to eat there felt like taking care of some unfinished business. Okay, just thinking about it is making me hungry... gotta go eat!
