Mom's "chatty sister", Amy is here for a big conference this weekend so Mom, AnnaClaire, and I drove up to meet her! We had a really fun time. We went to Chickfila because Amy had NEVER been there! (I don't think our family would survive without Chickfila!) We had a very fun time talking in person, finally! Although we've "known" Amy for 2 years, we hadn't yet met her. We had a very fun afternoon and were sad to bring her back to her hotel for the conference! Amy- can't wait to see you again! Maybe next time, we can meet sweet Sara, too! We were also able to meet another sweet lady, who we discovered lives very nearby! She has a 4 year old from the same city that Kate is in!! We definitely had a wonderful morning!
We were right by our big outlet mall, so we ran there afterwards. Well first, we went to Babies R Us to get an umbrella stroller. We got a really fun one... lime green with big blue and pink polka dots! It well be perfect to take to China with, especially because it has a travel bag. While we will eventually get a double stroller, we won't be using a stroller for Kate in China (baby carrier only... that's what we did for AC, too). AnnaClaire will definitely need one, though. Plus, we don't want to bring a really nice stroller to China. So yeah. We then ran to the mall... or Strasburg atleast. They are having a big sale!! We got AnnaClaire a really cute dress and her baptismal dress. We had bought her a beautiful one before we got her but when we brought her home, we were in the midst of trying out new churches, so we didn't get her baptized. Our Church (we've been there since I was in 1st grade!) ended up changing things around and we liked it much better, so while we are back there, AnnaClaire has still not been baptized. Now, we are unsure if we will be baptizing the little girls together or separate. Kate will wear the dress we had originally gotten for AnnaClaire, as it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. AnnaClaire's new one is gorgeous. I absolutely love it. Anyway, she will either get baptized in August (by herself) or in January (with Kate). Either way, her dress is beautiful and I cannot wait for you to see her in it! But really, it's not the dress that matters! Lastly, we got Easter dresses for next year. Yes, way in advance. However, we loveeeee them. We had actually ordered for AnnaClaire this year, but it was backordered. They had both girls sizes on sale, so we figured to get them now and not take the chance or them being gone. They are sooooo cute. I cannot wait to see them in their matching dresses! Before we left, we rode the merry-go-round, which is what the last 2 pictures are from. It was a fun day! :)
