At church Corey was a good mother to Owen during class time. Lots of our friends walked by the nursery and saw this as they peeked in. and I'm not the only one who snapped a picture. Pretty cute. Corey joked that he was in deep meditation.
Corey's family came over for a potluck BBQ dinner at 5. We enjoyed food and visiting and presented her with a gift: a family photo session with all of us in 2 weeks on June 1st. Yay! As we were visiting with family, Corey told a little bit about this trip to Seattle this past week and he mentioned how he had taken his saxophone at the request of one of the other developers. Corey had been invited to join him and played some jazz at a local bar. Corey had agreed and they played and Corey wasn't tempted to drink any alcohol, seeing as we're Mormon and all, but poor Abi, when she heard that Corey had gone to a bar, her eyes glazed over and she stared down at the ground in shock. Her face practically turned white... she was mortified. As we talked to her later about it as we tried to convince her that how her father hadn't done anything bad or wrong by going inside a bar and playing an instrument. But she is not convinced. This is just about the worst thing ever, she's worried that Corey's gonna be kicked out of the church for this. Below - a screen shot of the video his friend took:
Abi has a very tender heart. Don't you worry, Abi! Your dad is okay, and people who drink in bars are okay too - we can still be their friends! We know, sometimes it's hard to live in such a bubble and find out about the world out there. (She is seriously acting like Corey had an affair or something...) We'll make it through this.
One last thing from tonight, as we were all outside we heard a bird or something chirping and we looked all around trying to find where the sound was coming from... we finally found a baby bird in our basement window sill. It didn't look hurt at all, so we're not sure what to do, but I decided I don't really want to be involved (see my previous experience with a lost baby bird). So we'll see where that leads tomorrow. I called my mom kinda late tonight and wished her a happy mother's day and we visited for a while. She is rock solid/salt of the earth, I love her.
