Day 6: Aunt Ellie and a Picnic

On day six of my 100 happy days, Eliana, David's youngest sister, came into town and got to meet Annabelle for the first time.

Then Ellie, Annabelle, and I met David's parents and David downtown on the park strip for a lunch time picnic during Dave's lunch break.

After lunch was some less than happy times as my car would not start. However instead of being a very expensive repair as we thought (an alternator for example), it was fixed with just a new battery after being towed to an auto repair shop. Still, breastfeeding my crying daughter in the back of a broken car in the middle of downtown as all of my husband's coworkers walked by on their lunch breaks was not my finest hour. The car is slated/budgeted to be replaced in the next year or so, but I am really glad not to have our hand forced by deciding between an expensive repair and an immediate replacement. Not fun, but ultimately a good outcome and therefore a happy.
