Less than 50 days to go!
Last weekend, we went to Alexandria for our last trip before Gizmo’s arrival. I realize now why women don’t travel much during pregnancy. After the traffic-jammed 3 1/2 hour drive, I was cranky, tired, hungry, needing a bathroom, and very uncomfortable.
On Sunday, we went to the Vikingland Marching Band Festival in Alex to watch Bennett do two things at once: walk and play trombone. (Just kidding, Boomy!) Great Grandparents Weitzel came along. It was fun to visit with Papa Bud and Grandma Marcy, and it was a perfect day for a parade!
This summer has been one filled with construction. They are building a new parking ramp and re-routing the road on campus at NWC. The annual summer construction is constant on our highways and major roads. And now it’s hitting us close to home; in fact, it’s right outside our front door. (Thanks, Scott, for all the pictures of the equipment!)
Fortunately, the view from the side of the house is much better! I have my very own clematis “Flower Tower,” just like Grandpa Vern’s. And I just love it!
Scott told me last night, after we finished reading The Snowy Day to Gizmo, that I really look pregnant now. He thinks I’ve grown more in the last week than in any other week. (And note our freshly painted doors — thanks, Grace!)
Happy 4th of July!
