Maybe it was just a product of being out of Utah, the land of a million babies, but it felt like we got extra special treatment here. Lots of gifts for me+baby+luke. Also a delicious celebratory meal for me&Trav (filet mignon, shrimp, sparkling cider, and even Elsie's first birthday cake for dessert. Yum).
and going home was pretty entertaining too. Travis always gets nervous the first time he drives our new babies home. This time we had to drive an hour, instead of 15 minutes, and it might have taken even longer because he drove e x a c t l y the speed limit the whole way. And avoided other cars. Little elsie didn't even care- she didn't make a peep all the way home.
