Recently Mark and I took a little road trip across to the other coast to spend some time with Jesse and Amber.
Anticipation is in the air, as we are counting down the weeks until baby boy Jacobs makes his appearance.
It was great to not only spend time with Jesse and Amber, but also Beth, Jesse’s mom, who came for the weekend as well. Her sister organized a “mail-in” shower for out of town family to mail a gift before the weekend. We were able to share the joy as they opened the gifts.
Jesse was pretty excited about these little surfer dude shorts. The cradle in this photo is one that Mark built before Amber was born. Since then around 30 (forgot to count) babies have slept in it. Their names and birthdates are written on the bottom.
They were indeed showered with the blessing of lots of wonderful baby things.
All these boys clothes are a new thing for our family! Jesse and Amber are not telling us the name of this little boy yet. But Jesse keeps saying that he is going to call him Major Danger. So I had to make him a little shirt…
The weekend was not all about baby…
Mark took Jesse’s brother’s bike out for a spin. He is always up for a little wild-at-heart time.
We could hear him in the distance and tried not to worry. He made it back safe and sound.
This place was amazing. Insanely crowded, but oh what sensory overload!
We left with dinner… steak, potatoes, mushrooms, and asparagus.
Getting the baby’s room ready was part of the weekend and lots of fun.
But the best part of the weekend for me was feeling my grandson dance in his momma’s womb.
