Last night our friends, the Lloyd family, came over for dinner.  We have been hanging out a lot recently, which has been great because we have a lot in common and they are great!  They moved here this year from Virginia. Kwame is the new women’s soccer coach at UVM and his wife works from home as an accountant. Sidenote: Over dinner she was telling us that she had 40 spreadsheets open on her computer at one time….40?!?!!  I don’t know how she does it! Anyway, after we all ate, their son, Kijana wanted to go downstairs and watch a movie.  Seeing as though Grant and I don’t have any kids yet, the selection of what we have that’s age-appropriate (Kijana is 3) is pretty slim.  But, thanks to Pixar making films that every age can enjoy, like Shrek, we had that in stock and he was more than happy!  In fact, he was practically bouncing off the walls!

With Grant’s help, of course!  I swear, these two would get into so much mischief if we let them!  But the kid was loving this pole!! (which is there strictly for architectural support, people).  But after this…

Kwame said, “my son better not get used to slidin’ down that pole!” Lol!!!  Soon he was done and moved onto the treadmill…

With Grant’s help once again and Julie watching, Kijana decided to to give it a try.  It was getting late and the Lloyds had to go, but not without one more attempt…

They left and we went to bed shortly thereafter.  Then at 1:00 am we got the call, “Julie’s water broke…”

To be continued….
