Before the shower the family came over to our house for lunch and hanging out. The men stayed behind while the ladies headed off to church. Of course when we returned and questioned what they did while we were away we got the classic response of, "oh nothing". The most we could get from them was "watched tv, talked...nothing really". It was great fun having nearly every member of the family in our new home.
My family made the trip over from Columbia. Little girls in the front; nieces; Abby (being held by Julie), Caitlin, Emma, and Hannah. Back row, Julie, Lana (Julie's mom), Mom, Micha, and me.
