The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Zak is 1!

Has a year already gone by? It has been an unforgettable year full of happiness and frustration, and it really is amazing watching Zak grow up from a tiny helpless newborn to a 1 year old capable of doing so many things. Zak is now no longer a baby, but a little boy who is constantly bringing such joy and delight to our lives. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we had a small gathering at our apartment with my younger sister Honey (who arrived a few days prior) and a couple of friends.

A couple of simple entree that Honey quickly put together - Camembert Cheese with Crackers, and Pineapple Ham; and Chicken, Spinach and "Ricotta" Cannelloni (Rob bought mascarpone by mistake, but it worked out well), salad and Improbable Quiche prepared by Rob, Honey and me - yes, it was a tight fit in the tiny kitchen with the 3 of us in it.:

The birthday boy and the birthday cake - Apple and Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, which is baby-friendly and perhaps a bit too healthy for a birthday cake:

Happy birthday my little Zippy!
