Last weekend some of us skipped town on Friday and headed south to Portland. We were going to visit family who live near there and family who flew in from Arizona for a special baby shower that was on Sunday. Leishan, Dominick, Alyssa, Isaac, Angelina, Jude and Izzy all came with their Dad and I on this weekend excursion. I was blessed to find a great last minute deal on a nearby hotel for $44 a night! I know that sounds scary- but I tell you what- it was really nice and had the most comfortable hotel beds I have slept in ever! (And NO buddy, there were NO bed bugs!)
Here is Leishan, Alyssa and Izzy with their cousins Sckilyr and Caitlyn. It was so fun for me to finally get to meet them both!
Here is my niece Brittany, her husband Brian and the girls. Brittany went into pre-term labor at 32 weeks and has been on bed rest. She has several more weeks to go, please keep her in your prayers. They are having a boy and naming him Wilton. Brittany is TINY and Wilton is going to be a BIG boy, I just know it!
It was wonderful to get to spend the weekend with them.
This is my sister in law- Annette. She is Brittany's Mom and ran non stop the entire weekend ensuring that everything was in place for the baby shower. They had 50 people at the baby shower- three cakes and an AMAZING taco bar. Brittany, Brian and baby Wilton were showered with many gifts. What a blessing!
A friend of Brittany's made this adorable cake. So sweet!
Wilton's Harley rocker was one of the favorite presents.
We can't wait to meet Baby Wilton! What an awesome time had by all.
