I have fallen way behind on blog updates and now there is too much to put all in one logically. So, we are starting here! Last year after Charlie came home, we decided to have a "Welcome Home" picnic to gather some who had loved and supported us through our journey. Vince stepped to the plate and lumped it along with a birthday celebration for me at the end of last May. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to make it an annual event.
Holding off until fall seemed to be more conducive for our schedules and it was well worth it! It was an absolutely perfect day for weather and we had a great time at our Faith*Hope*Love - Family BBQ. Charlie thoroughly enjoyed himself - flitting from one person or table to the next. Luckily someone else always knew where he was because I couldn't keep up with him! Cant wait to do it all over again next year!
