Well we are on day 6 of our vacation and this is the first chance I have had to post a quick update. Time sure does fly when you are having fun. The trip has been just WONDERFUL in spite of the LONG drive to get here, haha. Oh my goodness, SUCH a journey...good thing the company and conversation were wonderful. We hit a MAJOR storm in Tucson which was really quite spectacular. Lightening lit the sky up in several places at the same time and the thunder roared, the wind whipped and the hail came down. This California girl doesn't see many of those. But finally 975 miles later we were here. It was good to see her house and her new things and the conversation hasn't stopped. : ) We enjoyed a nice dinner out Friday night and on Sat. morning (early) Mel & I headed out for Texas for her second baby shower. This one was given to her by her best friends from high school. One of her friends, Joanna, parents live in Lubbock which is about an hour and half from Mike & Mel's. She still lives in California, but visits often (which means they get to get together when she does) and thought it would be a good opportunity to give her another shower closer to their home so that her new friends out here could be included. Her other friend Amanda decided to jump onto the plan too even though she too still lives in California. Her other friend, Nichole, is married to Mike's first cousin and lives in Hereford, TX which is about 3 hours from Mike & Mel. They all get together often. How grateful I have been for Mel that she had such a good friend who not only lives close enough for occasional get togethers now, but has also become family. I have known all of these girls since they went to high school together, and a nicer group of girls would be hard to find. The shower was just BEAUTIFUL. Such a pleasant, wonderful day. She got LOTS of darling little things including favorite storybooks that all the guest brought for Samuel's future collection. The whole theme of the shower was storybooks, and it soo suited all these girls. Such avid readers every one of them is. Anyway, I put together a little slide show of the event for you to see. We have been working on the nursery ever since. It is coming along REALLY well. I will post pictures later when it is all finished, and in the meantime ENJOY the video. Don't forget to hit "full screen" and escape to exit. Hope everyone is doing GREAT. I haven't had much time for visiting and I have missed you all!
