Lori and Jessica have been trying to get together for months to have Jessica practice patternmaking using the parts of Lori’s book that have been written so far. First it was Jessica being busy with the Majestic, and then Lori being busy with Tommy, so they kept putting it off. Finally today they were going to get together but then Lowell got busy due to the Victorian Inn being sued (more on that later). So I volunteered to babysit Maren for the evening so Lori and Jessica wouldn’t be interupted. I really enjoyed playing Dad for about two hours. That was just about right. We took some nice walks, took a few great pictures, and I didn’t have to change a single diaper. Today’s picture was captured on our front porch just as the sun was sinking below the horizon.
