The day we got home from the hospital Mom was so much easier than any of us expected. We had the hardest time trying to get Mom to just stay still! She just wanted to play with Rachel and run around, when she should have been doing nothing but laying down and sleeping! So I finally gave in and we went the 1/2 mile down the road to Waller Park for a picnic. It was so fun taking Rachel to the park that I spent so much time at when I was a kid. We brought a whole loaf of bread and she loved feeding the ducks. But she was not expecting the "Waller Park Ducks" which are the ducks that run right up to you and will literally grab the bread out of your hand if you do not feed them fast enough! She got so mad at one of the ducks for eating her bread that she threw her sunglasses at it! Unfortunately for her she threw them at the ducks in the pond and lost them! She told me to go in the water and get them, and I just laughed at her! She loved going on the swings and having Nana Ging push her!
We had such an amazing time with her in California. We are so grateful that we were able to come see her and spend some time with her during this time. She and Frank spoiled us with everything...DVDs, clothes, food, bubbles, a giant pool for Rachel, etc. and we used the truck the whole time we were there! Thank you Frank! We miss you guys!
