On Saturday, the four of us went to the the Third Annual Truck Extravaganza (but it was a first for us). Truck Extravaganza allows kids and adults to sit inside, touch and learn about vehicles they typically don’t have the opportunity to be up close and personal with. The event featured music, food, a bouncey house, art, prizes, decorate your own hard hat, dig for trucks, etc. I thought it was a neat family-friendly event and several of our friends were there, too! Korri didn't like the noise; kids were honking the loud horns constantly and Finn was just overwhelmed, but did go in a school bus and on a couple smaller tractor-type vehicles. However, I think he would have been happy playing with the toy trucks the whole time. I wish it would have been a little earlier in the day since it started at 11am and my kids were ready for a nap by 12:30. Oh, well. If we go next year, maybe we can push nap back a little bit.
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
