On Sunday, we were invited to a baptism. We "googled" the church ahead of time, and I showed Lewie what it looked like. Then he helped me use Mapquest to figure out its location. He was so excited to help us with directions as we drove, and indeed he must have been paying very close attention because he spotted the church from quite a distance (even before us). "Mommy, there's the church! There's the church!" he announced happily. Once we entered, Lewie acted as if we struck gold. Since it's an old building (probably from the early 1700's), each of the pews had its own little door. He couldn't get enough of watching the little door open and close again and again, which of course, is an action we had to stop while the mass was being said.
Finally, yesterday marked our six year wedding anniversary. Although I'm ashamed to admit it, both my husband and me have been so busy with work lately that we almost forgot about it. Thankfully, my mother didn't, and she not only gave us money to go out and eat but also volunteered to watch Lewie for us, so we could have a nice, romantic dinner alone. The date did wonders for our relationship and sense of well being. What a wonderful surprise!
Yes, these past few days have been a whirlwind, but I don't want to forget them. Spending a few days with close friends and family is and always will be "priceless."
