My Fellow Labmates

This is my family away from family, the Enquist Lab at Princeton University . We had a conference at the UPenn Medical Center in Philadelphia this past week. Here are a few action shots. By the way, the restaurant is "Marrakesh", a four star Moroccan place just off of downtown. It was recommended by a Philly graduate student in the lab, and had an incredible silverware (you use Pita bread to scoop all food from the 7 course meal). My double chin starts to tingle just talking about it.

Last weekend we took the kids to see the Princeton fireworks. This show rivals any that I have ever seen. It is put on for all the alumni who are gathered for their reunions. The show was excellent, the music was beautiful. The kids were in a trance. It was a great night!

I am, of course talking about after the show started. This is how they looked while we were waiting for it to start. Not really sure what is going on with Ollie's eyes in this one :)


At school this week, they celebrated the birthdays of all the children whose birthdays are in the summer. Here is our king of the day!

Oh, baby

Some latest attempts to get some pictures of the peanut.

It's 3am, do you know where your children are?

Let's start with the youngest. Melissa was squawking, alerting me to her desire for Occasionally, when she gets up to eat in the night, I take her to the living room so as not to disturb Matt while he is sleeping. That is what I did last night.

Middle child. Oliver was sleeping in his bed. With 94 books surrounding him.

Oldest child. Imagine my surprise when I walked out to the living room and found Mason, wide awake, playing Nick Jr. on the computer. I asked what he was doing. His reply, "I woke up too early, and I am too tired to go back to sleep."

OK then.
