"We've...had the time of our lives!"
It's been a fantastic trip so far for the two of us gals, although we miss James a bunch. I didn't bring my camera, so these were taken by my dad. I won't be able to take pics of my trip to La Vernia (we head that way tomorrow), but I'll be sure to journal about it once I return home to Vancouver. Okay, so these days here in Houston have been all about reuniting with family and friends. First, I ADORE my new niece, Mary Ellen! She's amazingly cuddly and pretty as pie! I am in love. She curled up on my chest, the way I wish Wendy would have. I hope I get a cuddly one someday. Wendy's spent quality time with her great grandmother, Ruth, Aunt Karen (who MADE that fab. birthday cake for her!), Uncle Dan, Aunt Missy, Silly Uncle Walker, Aunt Stephanie, Uncle Sean and all of the cousins including "boy scouts" Devon, Wesley and Victor, Shepherd, Eva Rose, Maggie, Ike, Hattie, oh, and cousin Luke too, whose birthday party we'll attend this evening! So, Wendy's birthday party here was oh so fun. Sweet Katie gifted the gal with oodles of fun clothes! Wendy and the kids all ran around with water guns, Strawberry Shortcake sunglasses and candy necklaces. We adults ate gobs of pizza, cake, etc. Lots of catching up and lots of leisure. We girls were up to other things as well, like play dates with cousin Hattie, I went to the Outback Steakhouse with Katie, got to watch her take glorious baby pics of Mary Ellen, etc, etc, etc. I am gonna miss everyone here. That is certain....Boo hoooooo!
