we had a great time together. anytime you get me in a setting with lots of exciting things, and free!!, i get giddy. plus, being back at the dcc is always a happy thing. you add spending hours with mom and sister into the mix and you have the workings of a fabulous day.
we walked into the event and had a special photo taken (still waiting to see it!) and were handed a free bag to pack our loot around and entered our name into a drawing for some prizes. (lucky chrissy found out yesterday she won an adult size minky couture blanket. to say i'm jealous would be an understatement. it was at the expo that i found out that they really did make those in adult sizes. i always said theys hould, a soft cozy blanket... i always steal gracie's, but if i could just have my own, oh heaven. chrissy is a lucky duck!) we walked into the expo hall and were each handed a beautiful rose thanks to costco. then we waited for a few minutes and were treated to a free chair massage. from there, we made our way from booth to booth and were given free goodies and lots of great info on our health and baby's health too. we had mini makeovers, healthy snacks, and mostly enjoyed watching gracie and kellen play together. we stood in the back (because babies were a little fussy) and heard hilary weeks sing some beautiful songs.
after a lunch break, chrissy and kellen had evening plans so mom, g, dad, and i stopped by sweet tooth fairy for our free mother's day cupcakes (sooo delicious!) and then headed to south towne for the dream home expo. we were all a little bummed at the actual show, but we enjoyed being together and mom and dad had a fun time hanging in the hot tub!
my sweet little bug did so good all day long! she fell asleep in the car and woke up when we stopped by the store on the way home, she was a bit frazzled for a minute. and as soon as she saw me, the tears stopped. she is such a sweet baby! i love that she can be my little buddy and we can enjoy days like this together.
