When I couldn't find a babysitter for the ward adult social on Friday night, I figured it was Fate telling us to spend our last night before Baby as a family. We decided to pick up subs for dinner and play at the park together. Happily, the weather cooperated and we weren't rained out!
This photo of Lexi says it best: Jimmy John's sandwiches are yummy. This girl ate her sandwich over a period of about thirty minutes. She took a bite, ran off to play, and then came back for another bite every few minutes.
After eating, the kids all took scooters over to the skate park. They had a blast scooting up and down the ramps, but I don't think the teenagers/young adults appreciated interference from small people. We didn't stay too long.
As the kids played, I couldn't help but stare at the hospital across the street. I would be there soon enough!
The evening didn't end as happily as I had hoped. I was shooting for warm fuzzies at bed time, but it seems that child grumpies are part of the evening routine. Despite that, it still felt a little bit like Christmas Eve as we all anticipated Saturday's induction. The kids went to bed and Garry and I tidied the house, readied baby gear, and tried to relax. It was pretty crazy imagining that in just a few hours, we'd have a new family member in our arms!
