Celebrations

Monday was our Bon Voyage party at the Make-a-Wish house. Fifty of our dearest family and friends came to celebrate Jacob and wish us farewell on our trip. A few pictures . . .

entrance along with all the other Wish Kids'
stars


Jake with Irene (in the blue) and Carolyn,
his Wish Granters (both strictly volunteer)


The theme was Cruise Night--I don't know
why we're pointing out the volcano :)


The Wish Room--only Wish Kids
have a key and they can visit
whenever they like

Part of the Saratoga gang--Jake, Josh, Matt,
Zach, Keefin, Lochlyn, and Teal
It was a beautiful party and a way to offer thanks to a few of the many people who have helped us this year. I wish we could have invited all of you--distance and time notwithstanding :)
After a busy week (state holiday, Spencer's 7th birthday, getting new front and back doors installed), we're only hours away from our trip. We leave home at 3:30 tomorrow for our flight to Miami.
That's 3:30 in the morning.
No, we did not arrange the flight.
Matt doesn't plan to go to bed at all, but the little ones are already asleep and I'm headed that way quickly.
Wish us luck and no hurricanes!
