Amy and her mom
getting all the food ready
Not only was there wonderful food, but wonderful company as well. I got to see some people I hadn't seen in years and meet my cousin's daughter for the first time.
Mitzi and Quincy
Tanna and Ruby
We had lovely sunny weather for opening gifts and ooo-ing and ahh-ing over all the adorable baby things.

Ada is going to be one of the best dressed babies ever! Now we just can't wait to see her!

It was a great fun idea to get the things that we needed and have a social gathering for the ladies at our church!

the water was really low today
Zack and Andy are thinking about swimming
But it started to get warmer and more crowded just about the time we were leaving. We are looking forward to more sunny days to spend on the beach.

The kids have been so excited and they loved the movie! I highly recommend it. If you haven't read the book, or it's been a long time, I suggest you go see the movie and then read it. It is a wonderful story full of powerful spiritual lessons.
Following the movie, Chris, Zack and Andy left for the Mountain Man Retreat (our south end district's men's retreat).
Will and I, full of popcorn and soda pop went to pick up something for supper and headed home. The weather was still too nice to be indoors, so we played a couple of lively games of croquet.
Afterwards we came in to play a few games of Buzz Jr. while the pizza cooked. We enjoyed our fine supper out on the deck and came in to watch a movie before retiring.

All in all, it was a very good day!

The men at church made breakfast during Sunday School hour. Not only was it a very nice breakfast(much better than our normal hurried bowl of cereal) but I didn't have to teach Sunday School either. It is nice to have a break.
After church we just came home, called our moms, opened my gifts (I got Cookin Mama for the Wii), played Cookin Mama with the boys, took a walk around the Lake and did a bit of sewing. Will told me this was my one day of the year to be in charge, so I'd better take advantage of it. So I did. :o)

our spot on the island all to ourselves
and when it comes back it's like being on the ocean
the boys dig a river on the beach
by the time we were ready to head home we had lost about 20 feet of beach on all sides!
headin' for home

Cheryl and Luke
food tableWe decorated in reds and whites, served teas and lemonade and made LOTS of really good girl food. (That means we had LOTS of chocolate!) :o)
Our inspiration came from the baking class that one of the moms taught at Friday School this last session. They weren't as easy as they looked but we learned a lot that will make it easier next time. And there will be a next time. There were chocolate dipped strawberries, Oreos, marshmallows, mini-donuts, rice krispie treats, angel food cake, and chocolate cake. The best part was that everything was small so you could eat quite a few and not feel too full!
The shower was lots of fun! We had fun visiting, talking about babies, adoption, homeschooling and just stuff. Cheryl and Luke got lots of cute things, too.
