We’re here! And we are having a blast!!
First off, I need to share…
WE MET AMY ROLOFF! See?
Although technically, we didn’t “meet” Amy Roloff, it was more like I pounced on her on the sidewalk outside the hotel and wouldn’t let her leave until I could get a picture with her.
It sounded something like this:
“AMY! AMY! OH MY GOD, AMY! Hi! This is Seamus! It’s his birthday! He’s four! Can we PLEASE have a picture???”
I’m also pretty sure I was jumping up and down a little as I was shouting this. Yep…I’m an idiot. But she was sweet as could be, and stopped and chatted with us and took pictures with the kids. Awesome!
We are staying in a great hotel, and having so much fun. Tonight was the Welcome Reception, and the kids just danced and had a ball meeting new friends and seeing all the great entertainers perform.
I have video to share as well, but because I refuse to pay $12.95 for 24 hours of internet access, I will upload those at another time! (Gotta love NY. The omelettes on the breakfast menu here are 21 bucks.)
The convention has been amazing. Not only have we met up with so many of our great blogging friends, we are making many new friends as well! People are so kind, and outgoing, and just come right up to us and chat, which is fantastic. I kept getting a little teary-eyed during the reception tonight, because I just still can’t believe we’re here! I can’t believe our journey with Seamus had brought us to this incredible destination, where we can truly connect with other families and just feel so welcome and loved. And to experience it all on his birthday, the day we once thought we’d be saying goodbye to him, makes it even more special.
More fun to come in the next two days, before we take off for our next destination!
