M and I are about to leave for the airport to go to the west coast to meet lots and lots of new relations (and cousins, another novel experience).
Before we go, though, I thought I'd put up a picture of M and Helen; the slightly wary look is no doubt because her cheeks have just been pinched, and she was realizing that while aunts will be good for ice cream and trips to the zoo in a few years, they take payment in their own way.
Just after this picture was taken, we all went wedding dress shopping. M was very helpful, as she has decided opinions about cut and style. She suggested something in a zoo print in stretchy cotton, but the salesperson was unable to oblige.
