Yea! Ashley & John Are Here!

Meet our daughter and her husband, visiting from Chicago. Their flight yesterday was cancelled, so they didn't arrive until noon today. We drove to the airport in heavy fog, but, with the arrival of our kids, the sun came out for the rest of the day! I thought a photo of the two of them with the "International Arrivals" sign would surely be my picture of the day, but as I sat on my side of the desk and I saw them on Ken's computer, I switched gears and I was able to sneak two pictures into one!

It was a full full day and by the time those two settled in to watch a movie in the other room late this evening, I came to my computer and realized I'd never be able to reciprocate all the comments, much less go through my home page! At 11:30, Mrs Smith left me a last comment that was so dear, greatly appreciated, and right on target. She said her Chris had always told her that if she didn't look after herself, she'd be no good to anyone else. Since I've frequently sent advice her way, I thought it might be time for me to heed hers! Thank you all for taking the time to read through my little saga yesterday and for your sweet notes! I can't wait to hear what Enid thought of them all (I know she's still getting settled in her new home today.)

Six of us are going for a walk in the morning, and then we'll see how the rest of the day unfolds. I hope to have a wee bit of time to see you all, too. (Ashley is just starting 365 and is http://365project.org/lulu/365/2010-06-04 )
Yay!! So glad they made it. Although I'd be lying if I said I didn't wish I was there too. I was just wondering what day they'd arrive in NoSco and now I know. Give each other a big ol' group hug from Tina and me! xo

That's good to hear that they arrived safely, my mom is arriving from New York coming Sunday. I'm so excited to see her after more or less 5 years.

So great to hear they arrived safely! I love your creativity in shooting an image with both shots in one. I've been swamped over the last couple of weeks so my comments have been less. Thanks for yours today. Enjoy your new company. :)

posted June 8th, 2010  
Awww Louise you must be so happy to have your kids around, and by the smiles on their faces (in both pictures) you can tell they feel the same way.

Nice to see your family and also that they came to visit you. we already spent over 7 days here in Germany. having the time of our lives. six more days here in Bremen and then back to Remscheid, by that time Hans's sister and brother with family will be home from their vacation in Bayern and will greet us. so far we have stayed with his niece. .uploaded a few collages from our trip

beautiful family, louise. is ashley the one having a baby?
posted June 8th, 2010  
Denise and Rainee asked & Yes, Ash is my daughter having the baby in October. I'd tell you she's got the cutest little baby bump, but she doesn't like me making a fuss over her, so don't let her know I told you so ;-)
posted June 8th, 2010  
ahahhahaha...no fuss. okay =)
isn't it funny how we can relate to the caption of my photo for today? it's from beyonce's song...and i've never really liked her but i had a certain idea for the picture...when i look at it, i think flaws...so i was searching online and came across the lyrics for her song and it hit home =)

so...does ashely look like ken? because heather's the one that looks like you.
posted June 8th, 2010  
You know Louise, I find that I can't get through all my friends comments each day either.
Everyone understands & we know that we'll hear from each other sooner or later.
We are all here for the long haul :D

Great to have them home! Enjoy some time!
posted June 8th, 2010  
I actually really like this. There's something about the computer monitor screen in the foreground which does it for me.
posted June 8th, 2010  
Louise, you are going to have the best summer! Be sure to get everyone over to the Knot Pub for Lunenburg Sausage Burgers! They are the best!
posted June 8th, 2010  
Hi, Ashely and John! Great to see that they've arrived safely. Have a great time!

Hi Ashley and John! So nice to meet you! I hope you have a great visit! Sounds like you have a great time every day, no matter what you are doing.
posted June 9th, 2010  
Good advice, having a hard time keeping up with anything but posting, thought I'd pop into your pics at the least and I see you've been having good times
posted June 9th, 2010  
oh you must be so happy to see them! (no need to mention you just saw them last month ;)))
posted June 9th, 2010  
nice shot

Louise, I so enjoyed reading your note this morning!! Thank you so much for devoting me such a portion of your time! I love our 365 communication - it's almost like a letter for each day! :-) The photos are just a bonus! ;-)

I am so excited you liked my One Ride find! ;-) I am keeping every little piece of history we find, and we will definitely use some of the things as decorations around the house. Be sure we'll frame that old ticket! ;-) The other day Jeremy found an old shoe and a baseball in the wall - so cool! It's amazing what old houses have instore for new owners!

Back to dryers - I agree that it's a popular misconception that they use a lot of electric. I think that, plus the fact that people in Bulgaria mostly live in small apartments makes them undesirable. But my granny is definitely working on popularizing them! At fist she was thinking to go back to hanging clothes outside in summer, but now she's so used to her dryer that she's not going back to the old ways! ;-) I absolutely agree about the underwear - I don't know how people can do this! Hang it inside, or somewhere where the world won't see it! But people are different, and so are their ways!

How wonderful that John and Ashley got married in Lunenburg! No wonder it holds a dear place in their hearts! I hope you had a great walk this morning, and a perfect day! looking forward to your photo for today! ;-))

They look very happy! Enjoy every moment together! :)
posted June 9th, 2010  
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw, Louise, this is such a tender picture of your dear ones! :) Enjoy your time together in Lunenburg! :)
posted June 9th, 2010  
I love how you got both pictures in there! Very happy looking picture. :)
