He slept for much of the drive, plus at Uncle Dave's with Rauchelle...... and most of the evening at Gramma's. Tomorrow is a New Day.
Parking in the city can be a nuisance at the best of times, and with a U-Haul it can be a real bother, particularly when Gramma's building is surrounded by parking restrictions. And we were hoping to be able to disconnect the trailer so we weren't pulling it thru town everywhere we went. So my brother David was kind enough to make room for us to park it until Monday in his backyard. And we got to have a bit of a visit with him and his family to boot!!
We drove to White Rock where my mother was expecting us, but it was to be a surprise to Layne. She thought we were arriving on Sunday. But last week when I called my mom on Mother's Day, she said, "Oh, its too bad you aren't coming earlier. There's a bridal shower for Layne on Saturday night." Well, nobody had bothered to let this mother-of-the-bride know that!!!
So, we changed our plans so we could be at the shower. I wouldn't want to miss it, especially since I was going to be soooo close anyways.
Mom lives in a condo, and the people aren't suppose to leave doors open for 'strangers' to have access to the building. But, that's what happened. So we snuck in, and pilled out in the hallway outside Gramma's door. We had Gaelyn knock on the door, and when Layne opened the door she thought "There's a little girl here. Why's there a little girl here? Oh!!! It's Gaelyn!!!!"
So, we pulled off the surprise.
Gramma had let Micah in on the secret, and Layne had been wondering why Micah just wasn't into going and doing anything today. She thought it odd that he just wanted to hang out at Gramma's.
It got noisy and busy in Gramma's little condo, but we were so thrilled to be all together.
Doesn't Layne look happy??Layne had warned Micah about Gaelyn, and she only took minutes before she found her way to his lap, and then she started punching him. I think they'll be good friends.
Gramma loves to treat the children to chocolate bars. Anders is trying to eat his in relative peace & quiet in the kitchen, out of sight before he looses it to somebody else.
There's a Johnson tongue again!!

The shower was a success. It was nice to meet some of the people I hear Layne talk about from the church Layne & Micah attend.
