They're Heeeeeeeeeeeeeere!

Ok. The squealing is subsided but we're sitting here constantly grinning. I met them over at the hotel...here's Christy as soon as she opened the door. I could hear her giggling because she could see the red beam of my camera right through the peephole!

I think she was kinda happy to see me!
(I had the exact expression on my face!)


Steve and the boys at the hotel room.
(Maggie was in the biffy)


Together at last!
(We really squished each other with that first hug!)


Stopped at a drive-thru on the way to my house...
Is she just the cutest or what!?


Our five children playing together.
It started out quiet then got really fun!


My favourite picture -
Christy was talking to Angie on the phone so it was
like she was here too. (Sorta!)

So wow. What an awesome visit. Chris and Steve (well all of us) chatted like we were old friends that knew each other forever. My boys played with theirs and Maggie is so OMG mature that she is too grown up to play with the little kids but she is so patient with them. What a little lady!

We visited until almost 10:30 and all the kids were showing signs of wear. So they packed up their crew and headed back to the hotel. That was not allowed to be the end of our visit according to me at least, so I suggested I pick up Christy after a little while and we go to Tim Horton's!

I managed by some miracle to get Cooper to sleep and I slinked out to pick up my date! heehee. As we were on our way to Timmy's, Christy shouted "DEER!" I only had time to slam on the brakes and we JUST missed the deer. I've never seen a deer in that particular area before so it was quite alarming. I'm so glad she warned me or I'd not have seen it in time to stop. Whew!

We made it to Timmy's in one piece and we ordered through drive-thru so we could drive around and chat. We brought Steve a French Vanilla Cappuccino (my favourite - I sure hope he liked it!) and Christy got an ice cap with a hazelnut flavour shot. Mmmm. I picked up a coffee for Chris; he'll likely nuke it in the morning and take it to work with him. We drove around and I showed Christy all the points of interest in my little microcosm. Timmy's, where I take the kids to the sitter, my office, Chris's work, and it was too dark to see much but I did a tour while we chatted.

After about an hour we headed back to the hotel but still sat in the Jeep yakking for about another half an hour. They have a big day of traveling tomorrow and of course I have to work, so after a few more squeezy hugs we said goodbye (for now!) That was an awesome awesome visit. We HAVE TO do that again. The whole BSD lot of us. That would rock. Now I have one teensy project to do before I go to bed so I'm outta here.

Thank you Christy and Steve and Maggie and Steven and Squishy Henry for coming to see us - we sure had a great time with you!

I miss you already, girl!! I think all the dogs in Dryden came running when I opened that hotel room door - or maybe THAT'S what made every cow in Canada pee outside in the parking lot, eh?
Thanks for y'all's great hospitality. I had the BEST time.
