Going Home!...

At 1:00 p.m. today I laid down for a nap.  I was feeling discouraged, thinking, it's already 2:00 p.m. in Minnesota and we haven't even heard from them on our ICPC paperwork.  I fell asleep praying.  A few hours later, Ross woke me up with a happy dance.  We FINALLY got word that we've been released to travel!  We just booked our flight HOME.  We land at 1:25 p.m. tomorrow, Rae's two week birthday.  We are so excited to see our family and friends, sleep in our own bed, snuggle with our pup, and show Rae her nursery!
Here are some sleeping pictures of Rae (just for fun).

Utah (still)...

We are still in Utah.  Still waiting for ICPC paperwork to go through.  A formality, but must happen before we can leave the state and travel home.  We've had a wonderful time together--just the three of us--but now we want to go home.  We were pretty disappointed to learn we'd be staying through the weekend.  So, we decided to go on an adventure to lift our spirits. 
We spent Saturday afternoon in Park City, about a half hour from Salt Lake, where we're staying.  We fed Rae at 12:30p, strapped her in her car seat, and drove into the beautiful mountains.  The weather was mild and the air was clear in Park City, which was just what we needed.  We stopped for coffee, browsed some really cute shops, did some people watching, and enjoyed a late lunch.  Rae slept the whole time, snug as a bug in her sling.  She loved it and so did I!  [Lots of oohs and aahs over the tiny, cute baby. ;)]  We made it back to the car at 4:30p, and by that time she was starting to squirm.  We hung out in the parking lot while I changed and fed her in the back of our rental car.  Then returned her to the car seat for a sleepy ride back.  This little one goes with the flow!
