Oh, and getting stuck in snow banks after driving home after said baby was born. It was a wild ride! The birth was hard and difficult. But beautiful. The mother was amazingly strong and she was radiant!!! But this isnt my story to tell.
The ride home, during a winter snowstorm, was fine. Until i was 10 kms from Owen Sound. My car (a rental) caught a rut and starting to slide a bit into the other lane, where a school bus was driving in the other direction. So, when it became obvious to me that i was going to lose complete control, i choose to end in the snow, and not the bus. And at the risk of sounding morbid, it was kinda fun. I had been resting my knee against the door, so when i started off the road, i moved my knee, relaxed my shoulders and just went with it. The snow out the window made this amazing wave out driver-side window and i wondered if i was going to roll. I wasnt worried, just curious and a little excited. When i stopped, all i could think about is whether the car was damaged... cause i didnt want to pay it out of my insurance. Then i look out the otherside and i was so upset because the pie i bought flipped over... then i couldnt find the cell phone a friend had lent me.
But it was all good. The car is fine, alignment and all... And so was the pie. :)
Anyways... i think i will end this post with some pictures of the things we have been doing:
This is the cake Jul wanted for his birthday:
This game was given to Jul for his birthday from some new friends... it's a lot of fun!!
