Happy Inauguration Day!

By now all our readers (whoever you are) know we’re devoted Obama supporters, so it should come as no surprise that we’re posting today. Considering the enormity of the event, it’s hard to know what to say. We both got misty-eyed watching Barack get sworn in as president. (Avery on the other hand just wanted to know why he couldn’t watch Caillou or Thomas the Train.) Lindsey and I both remember watching Barack’s speech at the 2004 convention, and saying to each other this guy should run for president. When he announced his candidacy two months before Avery was born, we knew it was a long-shot, but were hopeful. Now the day is here, and we felt like jumping on the couch the way Tom Cruise did on the Oprah show.
Shortly after the benediction, Lindsey and Avery went to the neighbors house for a champagne celebration/play date. I got back to work, where the 45 MB internet connection was completely saturated with employees watching the inauguration on their computers.
In summation, today was a good day.
