It was the best of times, it was the best of times. Hey, I took the kids to two birthday parties on Melville Street last weekend, so why not break out a “Tale of Two Cities” reference. The first was a tea party (no, not the Tea Party), and there’s nothing like fancy hats and boas to spruce up a gathering. The second was food experiment themed, and it was a drop-off party, so I returned to the scene to find different forms of sweets scattered across a long table and all 20+ kids hyped up like there was no tomorrow. I tell you, life is good for our two.
