Father’s Day

Saturday was an extremely full day, with a birthday party appearance, a friend’s wedding, and Janet’s visit to see Carolyn at the hospital. So on Sunday, we very deliberately skipped church in order to get a bit more sleep (although we weren’t really able to sleep in, since we were both up regularly throughout the night to pump and feed Elizabeth). That was nice. Then in the early afternoon, we made our way over to my parent’s house for a nice big family dinner to celebrate Father’s Day. I feel very blessed for the two new reasons the day is significant for me. It was fun being able to take Elizabeth with us, but that simply served to underscore that our family isn’t complete without Carolyn, and we’re really looking forward to getting her home as well. Elizabeth slept most of the afternoon when she wasn’t eating, but we were able to show her off briefly to Cortnie and Audree, at least, who hadn’t yet seen her except in pictures. ┬áLater, Grandma and Grandpa got to hold Elizabeth for a while.

On our way home we stopped to find a new geocache here in Livermore, marking Elizabeth’s first ride in a stroller and first geocaching excursion. We were successful at finding the cache too, so that was a nice bonus, because our cache find rate has certainly taken a serious nose-dive since the girls were born. I’m looking forward to when we can go out and hit some easy trails with the girls in our nice new twin seater all terrain stroller!

Finally, since I hadn’t been out to the hospital to see Carolyn in a whole week thanks to a stupid little cold I caught, I made a point of going out to see her Sunday night for Father’s Day, while Janet stayed home with Elizabeth. It was so nice to see Carolyn again! I had a serious little talk with her about those bradycardia episodes, explaining that it’s really time for her to come home with the rest of the family. I hope she got the message.
