The perfect formula...
That's what occurred a week ago Wednesday when I took one of my holiday days off of work and spent the day out with Kathleen and Avery. The formula I was referring to was the perfect formula to equal naps on the way home that day. Granted my lovely wife and beautiful daughter are already the type fond of and prone to nap, but that day it could have happened to anyone. So it was pretty much a sure thing for the two pictured below.
The formula was a trip out to my favorite Walmart in Saukville. I had decided that if I could tell everyone else and their uncle about the changes coming to that store over the next year and with some even get into the details, I should probably clue my wife in as I talk very little about work with her. The upcoming events are going to take a lot out of me at times and we all know who in our lives will usually take the bulk of any lack of sunny disposition when those times come. Recognition is the first step right?
Some of the associates that I work with got to meet Avery and Kathleen while we were there and I gave Kathleen the "grand tour". Avery put on somewhat of a show as she is usually willing to do after some encouragement. After Walmart we drove some more to get something to eat, take a tour of the hospital we would be welcoming future Baby Z in, and shop for a new chair to rock Baby Z in when he arrives. It was a full day. Especially for a toddler that enjoyed seeing many excited associates, running down hospital hallways, going out to eat, and jumping on almost all 50 some chairs the furniture store had to offer! Then there was the Mommy who kept an eye on her while trying to keep up with Daddy explaining some of his work, soaking in a hospital that will probably never leaver her memory, and trudging her way through her last month of pregnancy! Whew! See what I mean? The perfect formula? Even a warm milk and bedtime story wouldn't have done much more by the time we started the 40 minute ride home! These two were just plumb tuckered out!
... and I couldn't help but to smile and just appreciate how blessed I really am.
Thanks to a super comfortable Buick ride and a super convenient smart phone camera... I can remember that day once again forever chronicled on Life with the Z's.
Hope you all enjoy your winter hibernation...
