Sorry it's been so long since our last update. We've been busy as always with the kids.
We have some great pictures of Natalie that we will try to upload to the blog site when and if we get some down time.
This weekend was a pretty fun weekend for us. We were able to have a normal 4th of July despite trying to stay away from crowds. We started the day with going to the Pleasant Hill parade, and found a nice spot in a shaded corner to camp out with our folding chairs to see the parade. It was nice to see some friends there as well. Natalie was so excited to see two friends in the parade.
That evening we went over to hang out with our friends, the Hopkins. They went out of their way to make sure their house was sanitized and both of their kids were well before we came over for a BBQ. Natalie and Sean both got to play with kids their age and it was so relaxing. The great thing is that the Hopkins live just a couple of streets away from the College Park fireworks so we got great seats in their courtyard watching the show. It was actually one of the best shows we've seen. Sean and Natalie both loved it. The funny thing is that Sean did not even know what fireworks was before that night. When we asked him if he wanted to see fireworks, he asked, "What are fireworks?" I guess that neither the 4th of July we had in Lake Tahoe or the Martinez fireworks show we've seen in the past left a lasting impression on him. He was really into this one!
Tomorrow is Natalie's monthly blood draw and appointment at UCSF. I know we should be more relaxed with these appointments by now, but it's hard to not be nervous. We are sending this message out to ask all of you to please pray for the appointment and results to go well. We'll keep you posted on how it goes.
