As usual, Nan Foster sent the kids some money to buy clothes with. Here is Nathan posing in one of his new outfits. I love how he behaves when the camera comes out. It's very funny!
Here are Rach, Ben and the kiddos at the summit of Pikes Peak. 14, 110 FT. I drove all the way up and back myself and I must say it was a lot of fun and not as scary as I thought. The views were spectacular, much better than you get on the train in my opinion. Despite feeling exhausted afterwards, I am so happy we did it.
And my own exciting news is that a week or so into the visit I found out that Crazy Town is getting a new resident next year. I'm not twelve weeks yet so I suppose I shouldn't tell anyone but it has had a bit of an impact on us all. Leia has started playing with a baby doll she has previously shown little interest in. I have been extremely tired and eating has been a chore. I can't seem to stomach much meat and all I really want is cheese, eggs, fresh and cold vegetables and fruit. And I need ice in all my drinks, something I don't usually care for. I'm also trying to adjust to life without my nasal allergy medication. It was okay for a few weeks but it's starting to catch up with me.
This visit has been bliss. There's no two people I'd rather hang with than my mother and sister (apart from Gary of course) and really getting to know Max has been something to treasure. I feel blessed to have the family I do. And now I am going to slow it down and try to stay sane until 12 weeks rolls around and hopefully I'll find a bit more energy.
