Our going away party was yesterday and it was a blast! It was so nice to see everyone... I just wish I had more time to talk! I felt like I only got quick little snippets! Chase did ok... he was a little upset at the amount of people (not quite the social butterfly yet) but even at his worst, he is still a pleasant baby... and his girlfriend came so that made him smile!
This post will be picture heavy because... well that's what the G's do! Ironically, I am only slightly in one picture! I try to get in more of them but I am the one doing the taking and it never really works out that I get in them!
Possibly my favorite dish that we served... Caprese Salad Kabobs with a pine nut pesto! I could have eaten the whole plate!
The whole spread... it was pretty yummy!
The Townleys and the Bunns!
Laura being the babywhisperer... they just flock to her!
Nick, Rose, Rob and Anna
My food guru Ali and hubby Craig... smart guy for marrying such a good cook. She supplied me with many of the recipes we used!
Jenn and Ethan having some QT with Adam and Chase.
Jaime and Craig... just one more month before Jackson makes his arrival!
Colleen and Jenn... Colleen has about 3 more weeks before Alex makes his arrival!
Sylvia, Ava and Kristen... Unbelievably, Ava is 14 months now... walking everywhere and being incredibly social! And Sylvia has about 2 more months before baby girl Charlie makes her arrival!
Uncle Paco (aka Craig) playing keep away with Chase!
Adam and Zach
Chase is very happy now that his girl Ava is here!
For anyone keeping track... that is 4 babies and 3 pregnant girls at the party! That doesn't even include the babies that couldn't make it.... Scooter was napping (although mommy made it!) and Lily who was out of town with the rents!
I have to say that is what I will miss most about this area... all of these friends/play dates for Chase (and me!). It makes me sad that Chase won't grow up in the thick of all these kids!
Now that the party is over... it's all out packing from here until the 23rd! Wish us luck!
