Since Wayne and I arrived in California on Friday night we have been so busy that I haven't had time to post on the blog much the past few days. This is a photo of the beginning of our adventure to the grocery store yesterday when Jacob and Maia were still at school and mom and dad were at the hospital.
Don't you think that Hailey looks a lot like her daddy!
Since it was Monday night, Maia offered to prepare and teach the family home evening lesson on gratitude at the hospital, which was outstanding. She even presented an object lesson and fun activity in which we all participated. This had to be one of the most special Family Home Evenings ever!
Jenny wasn't so sure what to think about Hailey. She seemed a little worried that Hailey was taking too much of mom's attention and maybe feeling like she was perhaps being replaced as mom's baby?
Hailey's brother and sisters all enjoyed taking a turn holding their new baby sister.
Lizzy seemed especially interested in Hailey.
Every Tuesday school is out early, so after Jacob and Maia got out of school, we went to pick up a few last minute items for Jacob at the store for his school camp out that starts tomorrow. He's really excited that the fifth grade is leaving in the morning for a three day, two night science camp. He'll be staying in cabins with his friends and doing a lot of hiking the next three days.
While at the store, the grandchildren each picked out a gift for Hailey, since she had given them all a gift at the hospital the night before. After dinner and fun at McDonald's we went back to the house and Wayne helped Jacob build 2 rockets. Jeff is going to help him launch them after Jacob returns from the science camp. Wayne and I will be in Vegas before Jacob returns. It's been a wonderful visit with such happy, special memories.
