This morning Rachel and I were getting ready to attend a baby shower for a girl in our ward, whose baby was born three weeks early and just came from the hospital yesterday. He's a sweet little guy. The present was a couple of packages of baby wipes—a very practical gift. Rachel did not think it was very neat—she turned her nose up at it and sniffed, "Mom, that's a pretty stupid gift!"
I told the new mother that when we presented her with the gift. Everybody laughed and then she made a big show of being so very happy to receive baby wipes to prove to Rachel that they were, in fact, a good gift. Rachel was quite shocked by her reaction.
After the baby shower we headed up to Bountiful to meet up with Emily and Morgan, who were down in Utah for a friend's wedding. Rachel and Miriam have been looking forward to seeing them all week—Empty Emmy and Uncon 'Organ! Grandma and Grandpa took us all out for lunch at IHOP. This was kind of a big deal for me because it was my first successful trip to IHOP.
Andrew loves pancakes and so we've tried to go on National Pancake Day a few times to get the free pancakes they offer at IHOP. Unfortunately, IHOP is always unnaturally busy on National Pancake Day and the wait is atrociously long so I always ended up pulling the plug on the idea and suggest going home to make pancakes. Andrew will do almost anything for a pancake.
We thought it was funny when Emily and Morgan showed up at the restaurant wearing red. Rachel was dressed in red from head to toe. Grandma and Grandpa were both wearing red shirts, too. Everyone else was in blue or white, except for me (I wore purple) and Miriam (she wore yellow). Emily and Morgan sat across the table from me so I took a few pictures of them with the girls, but I didn't get great pictures of anyone else.
We were lucky to also have Auntie Sarah, Great-Aunt Nicki, Grandma and Grandpa, Great-Grandma Pat, and Dave dine with us as well.
Other than that Saturday was a pretty lazy day, really. We were all tired and sluggish all day so we didn't really do very much. Sometimes it's nice to have days like that, I guess.
