So let me try to sum up the last week-
We were totally blessed by friends from our care group at church who brought meals the first few days. It was so nice to not have to worry about that...and they even made soft things like homemade applesauce and carrot soufle for Aiden. What great friends!!!!!
So I spent the next few days caring for him. But saturday I had a show at my Dad's church, it was their 185th anniversary celebration. It was hard to leave Aiden with my hubby (ya know, I just wanted to be the one caring for him...) but I decided to take my daughter with me and make it a girl day, besides, I needed a helper.
It was super windy- but a beautiful fall day. Julia and I had a blast. It wasn't a real busy show, but the celebration turned out really nice. Here are some pics....
My dad, his dad (grandpop), dads brother (my uncle) and my cousins son all played some good old tunes for us.
These teens below were there to spread the word of peace. I just fell in love with these guys. They played with the little kids all day, and they write their own programs from their own experiences with bullying, teaching kids about being peacemakers. GREAT kids! Julia made some good friends there.
Below is a couple shots of my booth. Julia helped me set up the tent and carried the weights to each post for me. She is one tough chicky! She also set up all the earrings.
All in all it was a really nice day, with lots of family stopping by to hang out, old friends coming to visit and shop, and just a lot of fun with my baby girl.
On sunday- though we weren't supposed to take Aiden anywhere, we decided to try to tour a dairy farm and take a small hayride. It was free, and just a little walking...and Aiden wasn't staying put at home anyway (he's supposed to be resting). I am glad we did. LIke I said, it was low key activity wise, but lots of info, and the kids got to pet some calfs and learn all about milking cows, and raising pigs.....and took a hayride. Fun time.
So now you know where I've been. Whew!
