Yep, we decided to celebrate Father’s Day a bit early with Grandpa today.

It started out with him coming over to our house for breakfast. Josh cooked up a great meal while I took care of the Bun. The poor girl, she was uncomfortable for a lot of the morning. When I went to get her out of bed this morning, I noticed that the food pump did not run all night. This meant that she did not get 225ccs of food, which is almost half of her daily intake. So, I had to feed her more frequently via g-tube in a bolus fashion. It just meant that she felt full a lot of the morning; this made her fussy.

When we finished the meal, we drove over to Grandpa’s house. He needed a lot of help with little things around his house. So we packed up the Bun with her travel crib and DVD player and went to meet the dogs. Needless to say, the dogs were a bit excited to see us. Manny kept jumping on the travel crib because he wanted to play with Ella so badly.

It was great for me to get love from the dogs. I had not seen them since last November, when I came to Denver for a business trip. In any case, they did not forget me! We are so thankful that Grandpa has been taking care of them for the past year or so.

Once Josh was done helping out Grandpa (putting a chair together, fixing a door knob, updating his computers, etc), we came back to our house. I convinced Josh to go on a walk. The Bun had just been given some food, so she fell fast asleep in the reclined stroller. We went on a walk for about an hour, just as the sun was starting to set. It was beautiful.

Today was the first weekend day for the three of us. It was relaxing and felt good to spend time together as a family. We’re looking forward to many more as the summer continues.
