Mom's Visit

Mom came to visit this week. The last time I saw my family was in March when she took a long layover and stayed for a weekend. While she was here this time I was able to show her the city. We took the metro downtown to Centennial Park and the Georgia Aquarium. The Aquarium was really crowded but we had fun anyways.

Mom rented a car while she was here to make it easier to get around. When we went to pick it up, they didn't have the size car she picked so they gave her a minivan for the same price. So we had a big car to drive all week. Bob used our car to get to work.

The first day we went to Babies R Us, I wanted to show mom all the new options and innovations that did not exist 20 years ago. Also I wanted her experience to help me pick out the best products. After a few hours of looking and making decisions, I set up my registry, at least for the bigger items. Before we left to find some food we had spent 4 hours in the store! That was just day 1.

The other 2 days we spent at home sorting the maternity clothes I was given and switching the clothes in my closet, and rearranging the furniture in our bedroom since it seems we may not get to move to a larger apartment. We also finished some flower arrangements that we had started in March.

Overall it was a good week and very productive. I'm getting more excited and anticipating our next doctor visit. It all seems to be going so fast and yet slow at the same time.
