Dinner with Paul's Family
We were so excited to find out that Paul's Auntie Pam was coming over to visit from Manchester. Last night, we met her, Aunt Sylvia and Uncle Steve (Paul's Mum's sister and husband who live in Bountiful) at the Brick Oven for dinner. The food was good, Steve/Sylvia reminisced about their time in Provo when Steve was attending BYU which was fun and Abby even behaved rather well, so we were all able to have a really nice time. Two things of note: 1.) Of course, there was the obligatory "where are you guys from?" comments which are always followed by "I know someone from England". 2.) They were already seated when we got there and had obviously underestimated my "new" size as they had never seen me pregnant before... well, that and the fact that I am just a huge hippo. Everyone was worried because they had been seated at a booth and after one look at me, were really nice and said we could move to a table. LUCKILY, I fit in the booth with about 1 1/2 inches to spare... glad they came this month... it would have had to be uncomfortable chairs at a table for sure. All in all, a great family night in which the only real problem was that it didn't last long enough.
