We took a day trip to go see our new niece. It was going to be a quick trip so we wouldn't overstay our welcome. After all, they got home from the hospital the night before and had just made it through their first night at home alone. (Anyone else remember those days? Me neither. Apparently sleep deprivation ruins memory retention.)
It was an apartment full. Michael, Blair, Simon, and baby Charlotte, plus Rick and Kim, plus our family, plus Brynne and Curt.
I made a beeline for the baby. It's nice to hold a new baby. But then I had to share. There was a newly married sister-in-law, and my four girls all wanting turns.
Before we left, we got to see how Simon was reacting to his new sister.
I think she will be loved.
Our stay in the apartment was short, so we detoured to the Spokane Valley mall to exercise the kids' legs, and then we had a snack at Krispy Kreme donuts. Can't say no to the fresh hot donuts sign.
