Welcome Baby Jana

On May 17th we welcomed our newest family member... Jana Ruth. She was 6 lbs 8 oz, 19 in long, and absolutely perfect. I had invited my best friend and her family for dinner and had it mostly ready when my labor started (about 6pm). Thankfully they were able to watch kids until my parents arrived. My dear friend and neighbor, MeeSook, drove me to the hospital and provided support until John arrived 16 minutes before Jana was born. He was about 2 1/2 hours drive away when I called when my labor started, and she decided to wait until her Daddy was there. (and no, he did not speed at all on the way! )

Parade time... again

Parade time again...
This time Isaiah and Lydia were invited to ride with a relative:
L-Bow the clown in his cool jeep
We had an exciting time trying to find L-Bow's jeep amidst all the parade entries in the staging area. Fortunately I knew what color his Jeep was... bright red! that made it a bit easier to find.
Cool balloon hat, and ready to rock.
practicing waving with new friends
On our race down to the end of the parade route... about 2 miles.
Tobiah loved the mascots and the big trucks... but not the pirates
Enjoying the sun...
just being cute... and then, when Isaiah and Lydia finally came by...
there was a sudden downpour!
Hoping the next parade isn't quite so wet!
