Her friends Abby and Summer insisted on throwing her a little celebration shower, even though Hillary resisted. But, Hillary's the one that always says every baby needs to be celebrated. I guess it just doesn't apply when it comes to her babies. Either way, a party was had. Here is the guest of honor at the party.
And here are just a few of the girls at the shower. Top row is her friend Kate, her best friend Wendy (who drove down from Utah and surprised Hillary at the shower!), Summer, Hillary, Abby. Then it's me (she also didn't know I was coming! my dad called me on Thursday afternoon and asked if I wanted to fly into town in the morning), Tara, Mom, and Kayleigh (suprise, too! She drove down with Wendy).
Our family kind of likes surprises, if you couldn't tell!
I just got home last night. It was a great trip but I'm really glad to be back. I missed my sweet boyfriend and sleeping in my own bed.
P.S. I thought I should also include the pictures I took of dinner on my first night there. My parents are a 'backup' family for the missionaries and this resulted in delicious mexican food and a 28" burrito being shared between the two elders and my padre. Mmm...I could go for some of that right about now!
