Beautiful Day!

What a wonderful day! As the sun was shining brightly this morning, I headed out to work. I worked at the shop for a couple of hours and then headed off to babysit my little friend, Mr. H. I called Lynn to see if she wanted an outing with her boys and she did, so we set out for downtown Columbia City! As we walked in and out of stores while the babies happily rode in there strollers and carriers, falling in and out of dreamy sleep land, I couldn't help but be happy! The babies were all content, the air was crispy but the sun shone bright and I was having a fun conversation with a good friend!

We ended up in the little bakery downtown for lunch and ended up with some babies who were very hungry and ready to head home. We finished our amazing focacia bread and headed for our homes. As we started walking home the sun went away and the clouds set in. We crunched through the leaves, oohed and aaahed over the beautiful colors in the leaves, and the little red, orange berries on the plants!  As we parted ways, little man and I set up the hill for home, barely got in the door, got little man laid down in his crib for nap and it started to pour, and pour, and pour! But it was a beautiful, refreshing, fall rain, that makes you feel all cozy and like you want to curl up on the couch with a cozy blanket and enjoy the pitter patter of the rain...so that's what I did. 

As I lay there, little Baby Hannah decided to make her presence known.  She started kicking and swimming, and somersaulting all over.  It was DELIGHTFUL! I love the comfort of knowing she is doing well and happy in her little home.  I rubbed my stomach, and pushed a bit on her and she responded right back...oh LOVE! I could feel her so well, and felt so close to her, I wanted to hold her in my arms so bad that I could almost imagine her right there in my arms, snuggling on the couch, with the rain beating outside!

Life is hectic and pretty crazy but oh it is BEAUTIFUL, and I'm totally in love with it!!!! <3

October is off to an amazing start! We welcomed in October in Mandan, ND at a very encouraging convention.  We go to see so many friends, some whom I have not seen since leaving ND, nearly 5 year ago now...time flies! Michael got to meet so many of my friends, and we both met new friends. Some of the people who have left very indelible impressions on my life were there, and we super enjoyed our time with them!
These are three of our little buddies....Carter, Brooks, and Asher
 And we got to spend some time with Eileen, who we really miss in Seattle.

On our way to ND, we got to stop and see my sweet little sister!! And had lunch with her and her friend, Heidi, while they were in clinicals at one of the local hospitals, in Spokane. We really enjoyed their quick lunch break, with them!!

And hey look, they are even wearing PURPLE scrubs!!! :)
 Thankful for our time at convention and very much looking forward to the rest of this fall!
