To celebrate my 22nd birthday, I signed up to play in a polo tournament. Despite the cold, it was great fun!

gone riding

I called up Diana for another visit. This time to ride. What a treat! 

don't mind if i do!
aboard a mighty fine steed 
through the bridle paths of english countryside
my head was on a constant swivel
found this in the barn... boys' toys
and again, Diana and I went on some lovely walks
It was a perfect getaway from school and Oxford!!

blues v russia

The Oxford Blues played the Russian national team this weekend. It proved to be an unfortunate 24-31 loss against the monster men in only the last 10 minutes. Such a bummer.

cheese, wine, laughs

Well the boys made it! The girls and I prepped their beds (complete with ample stuffed animals to keep them company), drew a nice welcome sign, and checked the train station multiple times looking for them. We had such a great weekend! They were wonderful additions. 

We went to a cheese factory. Calculated millionssss of dollars worth of cheeses in that building. It smelled so rank!

Stuart and I made a friend
