My parents took their yearly trip to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. I can't even tell you how much I miss the beach but, alas, I was not able to go! They're talking about doing it with the whole family once James gets back from his mission. I say, let's do it now! Forget James! But this is indeed the way the world works now: my mom sent Megan a cute little t-shirt as a souvenir. She sent it to Megan. Not her daughter whom she brought into this world. To her granddaughter. I guess I can't fault her -- it is the grandparent's job to spoil the grandchildren. And she is cuter than I am.
By the way, Alton Brown's show Good Eats about bread was titled "The Dough Also Rises". I was the only one who thought that was funny.
