Drinking in the experience that is ComicCon London.

A formula for you:
CosPlay* + Marvel Avengers + XBox Game Preview = ComicCon Nirvana.

*For the non-hipsters among you, it means "Costume Play". I had to ask the 13 year old what it meant.

When I was a little girl, I absolutely loved the movie "The Red Balloon." (One of the Simpsons writers did too, because it featured on the episode when Bart became an exchange student in France.)

This Red Balloon found its way to our ceiling during Thing Two's 10th birthday celebrations. It, along with a dozen other balloons, found their way there while Thing One showed us all how static electricity worked. Every morning after they had fallen down in the night, Thing One would dutifully put the balloons back on the ceiling for us.

High concentration, strategy and creativity were all in order as the boys tried to create the fastest drag racers at Legoland during Thing Two's 10th birthday party there.

In Week 18, I found that it was peak cherry blossom season in Greenwich Park during one of my morning runs.

The funny thing is, this is our 14th spring in Greenwich, but this is the first time I actually got around to taking a picture of the beautiful cherry blossom lane near the top.

No filter was harmed in the making of this picture.
