It was a lovely weekend. The weather was sweltering, but punctuated by a couple of good thunderstorms. We continued working in our house, making some headway in our horrid basement. Brent even got some underbed boxes made for under the big boy's bunk bed. Big huge ones. I am going to pick up some handles at ikea tomorrow for them.
My mom thoroughly enjoyed her volunteering at the IndyCar race, she got to interview people about their race experience. My mom is extremely personable and lovely, people are attracted to her like a moth to a flame and she can make anyone she speaks to feel like a million bucks. Both days she was there, she got invited up to the luxury boxes by people to come and watch the races. She said it was a pretty awesome experience, even for someone who is not into car racing.
Before she left, my Mom took Girly on a little shopping trip for her birthday. Nana asked Girly if Mommy could come along. Nope, no way, this was her time with her Nana! My Girly felt like the most special Girl in the whole world. Nana took her for ice cream and then let her pick out some things for herself at the store. When they got back, Girly couldn't wait to show me her haul. A couple outfits, a fairy book and a stuffed hippo. She was beaming from ear to ear, lucky girl.
My Ultrasound on Friday was fine, she didn't actually let me see much of the baby or say much at all, which I find disconcerting. I hate that the docs keep sending me to different ultrasound places, there is one place I adore and the rest are blah. Oh well, I will soon hold this babe in my arms, right?
Here is my teensy boy, who is already around 5 lbs they estimate.
Oh and I have to share this photo of my friends who came and shared a bbq with us on Friday. I got to see another side of my girlfriend's hubby, it was fun! We were so thankful for their company and are continually thankful for their friendship. They also have 1 daughter and 4 boys, share our faith and home educate. It is amazing to have people to share this journey with.
