As a big party before various family members scattered to the four winds (we're going to NYC and then Indiana, have you heard?), we got together with my siblings and Mom to have a contest of sorts. There were two aspects - who could build the tallest tower out of toothpicks and marshmallows, and who could design a carrier that would protect an egg whilst it was dropped from the top story of a 6-story parking garage? And fun was had by all.
Happily but tragically, all the eggs survived. Until we redid the dropping without a few layers. Then we got some good yolk.
In other news, a new Lydia post will be up just moments after this post.
