Friday Five

The work week is coming to an end, finally. Pretty sure this was the longest week ever and I sure am hoping this weekend feels like the longest weekend. Although, something tells me it will not.

We've got a packed agenda but really the only event I am focused on is this parade on Saturday. We've gone the last two years and it's awesome for kids and adults.

A new Marcel video was released this week and I think we've watched it at least ten times already.

I think this is a pretty great way to use a wall and with all this rain recently it's sure to green up quickly.

Ample Hills is bringing back their movie screenings, not like I need any more reasons to go there on a regular basis.

Our bags are mostly packed, diaper bag ready, and birth plan in place. Now it's essentially a waiting game. We're finishing up our online childbirth classes which I must say are quite informational and sometimes entertaining. But in between the waiting and the classes, we've had to think about how we're going to handle life after baby's birth.

I don't mean thinking and planning about the lack of sleep, feeding schedule, or just the overall changes a new baby is going to bring. I'm talking about how we're going to handle excited family members and friends who've waited just as long as we have to meet our child. That sentence sounds so bizarre, right? How we're going to handle family and friends? That sentence shouldn't even have to exist.
