Fun With Sudhara
My very dear friend Sudhara visited me this week. She was in St. Paul visiting another friend who had a baby in March, & drove up to Duluth to spend a couple days with me & my babies too! She had never met Dahlia OR August so that was a real treat. Dahlia warmed up to her very quickly - which I was very happy about.
Mostly we sat on the front porch & talked. We probably could've sat there for days just catching up. The weather was beautiful & we enjoyed a margarita before walking down to the Burrito Union for dinner.
On Wednesday we lazed about, went to Jimmy John's (her first such experience) for lunch & then for a hike on the Park Point nature trail. Dang it was HOT.
That evening I made dinner & we mostly tried to keep August from screaming. We weren't successful. So much so that I FB'd my pediatrician at 10pm on Wednesday night. She rocks & helped me set up an appointment for the following day with a NP as she was out of town.
Thursday morning Sudhara & I took August to the doctor (fun things to do in Duluth!) where he was examined & had an abdomen x-ray. After that we were able to have a nice breakfast out before she had to leave.
It was a great visit, although far too brief. It had been over a year since I saw her & it was like we picked up immediately where we left off. I miss her already.
