The day after Charlie’s blessing was Labor Day, and I was so excited that Jason was able to take the day off. It wasn’t until mid-morning until we spontaneously decided to take advantage of the good weather and head to Park City for the afternoon. Park City is always beautiful and has an element of fun and excitement.
“strolled” along the shops...we hoped Charlie would enjoy his stroller a
little bit more, but we ended up carrying him a lot of the time. I was
surprised at the number of restaurants on main street! I swear the
number has recently boomed. There were so many that we wanted to try
out...but given our time limitation (some didn’t open until five) and
baby limitation, we couldn’t pass up going to the good old Mainstreet
Pizza and Noodle. Love that place! And lucky for us, Charlie was asleep
in his stroller for the entire meal! Yipee!
our way home, Jason had the idea of stopping to fish on the middle
Provo. The weather was great and we had the baby carrier, so I agreed to
the plan. Once we parked and before we got out to fish, I decided it
would be a good time to nurse Charlie while in the car in the back seat.
While nursing him, Charlie let out a few good “fluffs”...and by that I
mean gigantic farts! I knew his diaper could not be pretty after the
sound of those...but I continued to nurse him. I continued to bring my
hand to his diaper to check for any wetness and didn’t notice any. A few
minutes later when I went for another touch-check, my hand came back
drenched in baby poop! I immediately exclaimed, “Ah!!! Help me!” Jason
turned around from the front seat and burst out in laughter. Charlie’s
poop was oozing down from his diaper, dripping down onto my shorts and
then puddling on the seat beneath me. I continued to shout, “Help me!
Help me!” Jason quickly came around to the back seat and carefully
lifted Charlie from my lap. But at that point we just looked at each
other and started laughing again. Jason said, “I don’t even know what to
do!!” We have had countless blow-outs with this little fellow, but none
before or since have been quite as big or quite as dramatic! After we
finished soaking him with wet wipes, changing his clothes, and cleaning
him up...we continued on our fishing adventure (crusty poop-shorts and
didn’t have too much luck at first, but towards the end before we left
for the day, we each caught a fish...Jason catching two. Charlie was
pretty good in his baby carrier. We ended up draping a thin blanket over
his head and body to protect him from the sun, and he fell asleep. So
that was pretty nice...and pretty hilarious looking.
The traffic on the way home through Provo Canyon was horrible! But all in all, we had such a fun day!
