I just finished two books on Wednesday, marking the end of a months-long work marathon, so as usual, here's a catchup blog on all the Mallon craziness.
The weekend our stove caught on fire, Darrick had to go to the emergency room. He stabbed himself in the hand with a steak knife, trying to pry granola from the pan. We spent the entire day at the emergency room, but Alexander was awesome. He hung out in my lap for a while, cruised the waiting room, played with the water fountain, showed us his amazing powers by opening and closing the automatic door, and then spent some time trying to unlock a door with a pretzel stick.
Darrick's stitches are out, and his hand is fine, but now we have to be very watchful to avoid another trip to the emergency room, as you can see from the photos and video below:
Last Sunday, we met for lunch at Reid Park with the Fawcetts and the Beaudry Brockschmidts. Alexander particularly enjoyed the rose garden. We couldn't find his hat, so he's wearing one of Darrick's (sometimes).
We've also had other park adventures, but I'll save that for another blog.
