My first stop was to Whole Foods for shrimp bisque soup. Not only does it taste amazing, but that soup is pretty special to me. The night before sweet Dave was born I was too tired to cook so we stopped by Whole Foods for some takeout. Mike got sushi and I had the soup. We took it home and watched a movie with Kyle. I remember snuggling on the sofa with my two boys and being so grateful for life. I just remember feeling so thankful for God's blessings.
About eight hours later my labor started with Dave and then we were a family of four! We joked that the shrimp bisque was what got labor going. I was so thankful for that night of takeout and a movie to celebrate or last official night as a family of three. Our life took some crazy turns and spills over the next few months as we immersed ourselves in the world of Down Syndrome.After Whole Foods and a little shopping I headed down the road to Orange. The last time Mike visited our old house was it was in pretty bad shape, but I was so happy and thrilled to see that someone bought it and fixed it back up!!! This is a wonderful house and I have so many happy happy memories here. I am such a senitmental sap. Obviously the folks that have put so much TLC into the house also think that it is cool to put antiques on the porch, but I was so thankful to see a swimming pool, playground, and picnic table in the yard. It looks like the people that live there are enjoying it as much as we did. I was aching to knock on the door but I really did not want a police escort out of Orange County!
