Tanya's Daily Scoop Covering the West Coast & the World NEXT TRIP DEPARTS IN: 2 DAYS
Happy Sunday to you!
EEEEEEEEK I'm getting pretty darn excited over here to be leaving for Rome in only 2 days!!!!
I'm not quite sure that the kids are even half as excited as I am. But I know that they will absolutely love this trip and that it will be a wonderful bonding experience of which we will all make some amazing memories that will will be able to look back on in great fondness!
We went to a baby shower yesterday for a very missed leader from the IPC - Olivia...
Olivia started as an Ambassador with the choir when she was 6 years old and had graduated from the choir the same year that Dominic had joined (2004).
From that point forward Olivia came back week after week, first as a dance instructor and eventually she took on the role of the choir director.
Through the years we've seen her get engaged, married and most recently found out (while we were on vacation with the choir camp in Idaho) that she was pregnant! And now little baby Matthew jr. is due for arrival on April 19th.
As I mentioned to you guys yesterday this baby shower was only only the 2nd that I've ever gone to!
It also happened to be the 2nd baby shower that Cosette has been to as well and because it was being thrown from the choir - it had been decided that children/boys/and men would even be allowed! GASP!!
So while Cosette and I were on #2, Dave and Dominic had their first experience!!
Anyhow I began telling you about Olivia because I hadn't seen her since December and upon greeting her she had asked me how my trip was... I really had no clue "which" trip she was talking about!!!
I needed clarification and she said "the last one". lol
Well to be quite honest, I try to plan all of my trips where the answer will be that I had a great time! And this pretty much holds true...with a minor exception here and there but very far and few between.
I'm pretty sure that the kids also enjoy our trips.
At least that's what I hope for. And from the stories that I hear them share with friends and family I could tell that they really have enjoyed our journeys around the world! Italy definitely being a favorite!!
I'll be adding some more pics later on (once I'm home). But I've got a bunch of little errands and pampering to do today in order to be fully prepared for our Bon Voyage! So I'll catch you back here a bit later. Hope you very much enjoy your day until then, -Travelin' Tanya
