Born on the 4th of July!

I love the 4th of July, I always have! I got a text from my second son, Kyle last night stating that Kara was having some contractions but he wasn’t sure that it was really “go time” and he would let me know something this morning.

I texted Kyle this morning to check and see how things were going and he said they had a rough night and were at the hospital, but still uncertain if she was going to be in active labor. Therefore, David did his 5-miler and I worked at the water station. He had a great run and finished in 36:43, which is a 7.21 pace, which is pretty darn fast for a 60 year old – well for anyone, for that matter, it is way faster than I could run at any time in my life! He did a great job!

We stayed at the after party until I got a text from Kyle saying that she was admitted and things were “a go”! We went home, cleaned up and packed for our side trip and our trip to Hugo. We got to Tyler, and in case you don’t know they have 2 hospitals next to one another and as luck would have it, we went to the wrong one first! We finally got to the right one, but after they had kicked out all of the visitors. I was disappointed, but the real kicker was when we had to wait an entire hour after she was born. I was asking different ones as they came and went about what was going on and not one person was helpful. I wasn’t too surprised, but I had to ask anyway!

Kyle finally emerged from the room and we were able to ask him all the questions and best of all, we got to meet our new granddaughter, Adley Grae. She is such a sweet little girl, and so very small and petite, she weighs 6 pounds and 7 ounces and is 19 inches long. Best of all, she has pretty red hair, our own little firecracker!
