On Tuesday, we took care of Campbell Walker while Estée was in labor. He was here from about noon until after 9 pm when Tom drove him to a town halfway between our house and his, where Estée’s mum picked him up and brought him home, as he slept all the way.
He had a big, big day. Matt was on vacation so he and Hazel Nina were up here most of the day. Our cousins were visiting from Arkansas and they came by in the late afternoon. Some local friends brought supper, Margaret came after work, Matt’s mum was here, and we had a grand get-together. Later we found out that Indy had been born while most everyone was still here. Tom and I took lots of pictures that day, so here is the way the world looked at Grammy and Grampy’s in the hours leading up to the little fellow’s arrival.

Cousins choosing a cookbook
A little lunch conversation
We had bought a bouncy house a while ago, but wanted to wait and set it up when both cousins were here. Today was that day! It is a blast. It holds up to 250 pounds so the adults can enjoy it, also.
At first Campbell was more interested in the motor than the actual house.
But later in the day, he discovered how much he loved it, especially the slide!
Taken through the netting, but you can see the fun they were having (including the other 'kid').
Earlier in the day, we took a cart ride. Tired little ones.
I told some friends that if were 100, I would look back upon this day as the most perfect in my life. And when I said my prayer of thanks, I called it a Holy Day.
