Well, its a done deal. The "BABY SHOWER ROAD TRIP" IS DONE AND IT WAS A TOTAL SUCCESS
First I got info. That the new mother to be was in the hospital and wouldn't be able to be at the baby shower for her.but we went on with it anyway. And great friends and family came to support this.
So here is how it went
Patsy Jackson got Johnny Landoff chevorlet to donate a beautiful Treverse Chevorlet,2011 for us to use for the trip. And we picked it up on Friday.
Early Sat. Morning. (5.30am !!!) we left my house to meet Lisa Wood ,then we went to Walmart to wait if anyone wanted to join us or drop off gifts(that was a joke as no one showed up!!) but a new volunteer did.
Pam came and joined us as did Carol Biggerstaff.we headed out to Liberty ,Mo. Which is about a 4 hour trip.
Lisa was our driver(she is good ) and we hit the road.
Stopped along the way for "breaks" and arrived in Liberty ,Mo. About 11:30am
Patsy checked in with the Manager,
She let us get set up early.and the staff started helping us. They brought us drinks and some appetizers .and were there to keep asking if we needed anything else.
Stacy Edwards and her really nice daughters joined us and they had all these awesome decorations that Stacy had done (see attached pictures)
The food was so good and the staff treated us so good.
And then we loaded up all the gifts and headed to the hospital to meet Alyssa White
And she opened all her gifts and we had cake and then we headed back to St. Louis
And Stacy and daughters back to Ill.
And we had such a great time. Laughed all the way over and most of the way back. Cant help it with Carol Biggerstaff along
We got home about 10pm last night and the day is done
