What a fun holiday to celebrate! Especially if you live in a beach town. LOTS of out of town visitors... LOTS of traffic... lots of great summery things going on! We had a special visitor of our own. Last minute, Uncle Dan decided to swing down for a visit. We loved having him, although I think he isn't used to going to bed at 9pm, and waking up at 7am. We're "old timers" with a kid. But, we still loved it. Nora LOVES "UH HU Dan". On the fourth we were torn on what to do. We knew anything was going to be crowded, and packed with people, so we figured, lets be packed at the beach. Early evening, we hauled our gear to the Oceanfront Beach. There were lots of concerts, magicians, and other fun stuff going on, but we were content just building mountains in the sand. Some friends met us up there a little later, before the real SHOW began. Nora loved the way the fireworks looked, but wasn't crazy about the sound. What a fun, and relaxing day. We are "LOCALS" now, so we know the secrets to getting in and out in a timely fashion. PHEW!
Baby Update: On a different note, the baby is doing well. I have been feeling MUCH better the last couple of weeks, so that makes me much happier. I definately have a belly starting to pop, but that may be from the enjoyment of bi-weekly trips to Krispy Kreme. No pictures yet, so please stop sending me threatening emails... wanting to see baby pics! Trust me... they will come, and they WON'T be pretty. My next appointment isn't until the 22nd of July, and then on the 11th of August we find out what we are having. I am 99% sure I know what we are having, but other than looking at the babies privates, they want to make sure it is developing well, and has all of its limbs etc. Nora loves the fact the there is a baby inside my tummy, and knows everytime I eat, "the baby eats dinner too?" Of course, she has no idea how this will change her life, but the thought of it, excites her. Last time I measured, I was 9 toilet paper squares around. So the next time you use the "facilities" think of that! Thank you for all the emails about your thoughts and prayers. They are really felt!!!
