Exciting News at the Park (Photostory)
Chow time! All the guests have fixed their plates and have settled down to eat.
I'm not sure if we should read anything into Valencia not sitting next to Ian. Maybe the blanket and grass were itchy.
Kobe and Sharmaine are deep in conversation.
Roberta, JT, and the kids are eating at the picnic table.
"Fabulous job on the grill. I think you impressed Rod. He's not known for handing over his grill." (Roberta)
"You ready?" (Rod)
"I'm more than ready." (Danielle)
A quick kiss and they return to the group.
"Hey guys. Hope you are enjoying the food. JT did a fabulous job. (applause from the group) We just wanted to say thanks to everyone for joining us today. We felt the picnic was a great way to welcome Mommy to town and a good way to get to know JT." (Danielle).
"JT, I have to admit, I was not totally excited when Mommy told us about you, but after today, I am a fan. I think Mommy is in good hands." (Danielle)
"Thanks for making me feel right at home." (JT)
"Rod and I also thought since most of the family is here, this would be a good time to share some news." (Danielle)
"We're moving!" (Danielle)
"You're not moving out of town, are you?" (Roberta)
"No, we're moving to a bigger house right here in town." (Danielle)
"And the reason we're moving is because we are expecting." (Danielle)
"Expecting! You're having a baby?" (Roberta)
"Oh my goodness. I'm so excited for you. How far along are you?" (Roberta)
"Three months." (Danielle)
"Three months? How did you ever keep this from me?" (Roberta pulling Danielle in close for a hug)
"No offense Mom, but you are not the best at keeping a secret. The whole town would have known before I had time to tell the family." (Danielle)
"Ooo wee. Wait til the ladies hear this." (Roberta)
"My point exactly." (Danielle, laughing)
So the time has finally arrived. Danielle and Rod are having a baby together. Yay! I know you are all very excited. So I have six months to find the perfect baby. Someone should tell Danielle being pregnant and moving are not a great combination. Hopefully, they will be moving sooner, rather than later. Would you like to see their house?
Yep, they will be the proud new owners of the Country Estate. I'm a little afraid of this house. I think it is going to be much bigger than it looks here.
