I normally get home about 5 and make/eat dinner and play with Irelyn until bedtime. Then I have about 2 hours at night to clean, do laundry, relax, or work on other things depending on how late I want to stay up. And I like sleep.
Anyway, this past Sunday we celebrated Easter and Irelyn's birthday with my side of the family in Westby. I have to work Easter Sunday. BOO. The day started rough and Joe ended up not going with us. Another BOO. I won't get into all that, but its fine now. Irelyn and I showed up to church 10 minutes late. I didn't realize it was confirmation Sunday. It was full and we couldn't sneak into a seat in the back so I had to walk half way up and around people. Awkward. Irelyn started her 'stranger danger' a little later than I think most babies do.(at almost a year) For church it comes in a little handy. She sat on my lap and ate animal crackers the whole time.

Plan continued to work perfectly. She was sleeping again a few minutes after we left and slept all the way home. Plus, we missed the storms. However, I do think if you would have taken my blood pressure when driving through La Crosse it would have been sky high. The tornado warnings on the radio would go off ever 2 minutes. It was clear in front of me and green/gray/black behind me. I decided not to look behind me. I just concentrated on getting my baby home, but it was all fine. We hung out in the basement as a precaution for a little while, but the storm was short and over quickly. We in Holmen did not get the hail that La Crosse got and I was very lucky to have gotten through just in time.
