Happy Birthday Auntie Franni and Uncle Mikey

Parker is about to go down for his nap and I was going to make rice balls again today but I have decided that rice balls and risotto on the same day is a little too much rice. As a result, I have some time to write today's article.

This morning Parker, daddy, mommy and gaga all went on a walk around Milano Due. We decided to take Gaga to the hospital to see what it looked like and where we spend our time when we are not walking around our residence. On our way home we took a detour to extend our walk an extra couple of kilometers.

Since Nana and Gaga have arrived it has made life a little bit easier, as my wife and I can work on something and they are able to occupy Parker's time. In addition, it also helps to have them around when Mr. Stinkerbobinker shows up. A couple of days ago when he showed up as a result of a post-surgery antibiotic it was good having Gaga keep Parker quiet while mommy wiped down the little monkey and Nana used the bidet to rinse the stinkiness off his clothes.

Although my wife is a little afraid of the ducks that chased her a couple of weeks ago, I am not and decided to get a couple close images of the large ducks who were feeding close to the edge of the water.

Our friends from the east coast of Canada have arrived in Maryland for their SCID ADA gene therapy trial. I know they will probably be overwhelmed the next few months being so far away from home; however, reading about their daughter I am sure that they will obtain strength from her as we do from Parker. I wish them all the best in their daughter's treatment.

Also, before I do sign off for the day, I would like to wish my brother and sister a VERY happy birthday today. Make sure to do something special to celebrate your day!
