A Great Weekend

On Sunday Chris' friends invited us to meet them at the state park for a picnic. We haven't gotten together since last year, so we were excited to go. The weather looked great and we had already been hoping for a chance to get the kids out for a day.

We left early, about 9 am, and didn't get home until almost 7 pm. The weather was great, cloudy in the morning but clearing up nicely for the afternoon. We had plenty of food and the boys got to swim in the pool for hours. Chris got to go on a 2 hour hike with just his buddies, no kids, which was great for him. While the kids were in the pool I had Jacob to myself at the picnic tables, so some quiet time for me. I also enjoyed talking with the other moms. There was a mom with a 6 mo baby, she had been pg when we got together last year. She had a little girl, I just loved seeing all the pink stuff! At one point we put the babies down together on a blanket in the shade and the 6 mo rolled over to Jacob and had her hand in his, so it looked like they were holding hands. It was so cute! I wish I had remembered my camera, but of course, left it at home.

One regret I had about the day is that it was on the same day as my cousin's baby shower. I would have really liked to go to that, but it was out of state and Chris' car is starting to really deteriorate. Since I don't have a cell phone and I would have been alone with Jacob for the trip, I just didn't feel safe driving so far. I would have hitched a ride with my sister, but she opted to make it a weekend visiting with my aunt, and we agreed that it wouldn't really be a good idea to try an overnight trip with the baby. I am sad to have missed seeing my aunt and all my cousins; it's been a long time since we've seen each other. (I think it was the summer before Micah was born) Maybe I'll get a chance to go out and visit in August, after the baby is born. It's going to be another girl, so I get to buy more pink!

Sounds like you had a fun time at the park! Sorry to hear you weren't able to attend your cousin's baby shower. I'm sure they understand.
