    It will work for me either June 2nd or 3rd (the 7th won't work). If either of these dates suit Crystal, we can make definite plans. I don't know if my husband will be able to get off work, as he's taking a day off this week. Ashley doesn't finish up at ps until June 8th. I'd like to just take her out for the day so she can come along and meet all the other kids; we'll have to see if I can get dh to agree! (They never really do anything that last week anyway!)

    The picnic idea sounds fine. I can gladly make something to share also (don't know what yet, but I'll think of something).

    Sigh..... I got to thinking that Ohio isn't THAT far away.... But then, I looked and it is 372 miles from here to there. If DH was out of school yet, maybe I'd be able to talk him into it. Oh, well! Hope y'all have a wondeful time!!! Take pictures see if they could be posted for us to see!

    Ladies, I'm married to the most wonderful man in the world! I told him that you were going to meet, and he says I should go. Yeah, right! But he was serious! He says I can leave the little one here, then take the girls up the day before and spend the night at a hotel! He says it will be a "Girl's Night", and he and Phillip will go out to dinner and do something just the two of them. Ain't he a sweetie? So can we come too, PLEASE???

    The June 2 would work better for me; my girls their yearly check-up on the third. I will change it if I have to, but that will mean putting it back a whole month or longer.

    That would be great- the more, the merrier!
    How old are your girls?

    You do have a nice hubby- he sounds kinda like mine!

    WOW

    This is awesome!! I was so excited when I saw this post. The 7th works better for me BUT I can make June 2nd work so that we can all meet. One of my children is going away from June 1st to the 5th so that is not a major deal. I would like him to be there, but I will take pictures for him. It doesnt matter to me what time of day. I only live about 15 - 20 minutes from Hershey so you ladies that have to drive further can set up a time.
    That is great that Jackie is coming too!!! Anyone else out there that would like to meet with all of us you are welcome!!!!

    So June 2nd it is. Now we need a time and should probably pick a place in Hershey. I think the easiest would be the main doors to chocolate world. If anyone else has an idea let me know.

    Crystal

    Heidi, my youngest, DS4, will be staying home with Daddy. I'll be bringing Rachael (almost 10) and Faythe (8). I told Mom and she wishes she could come, too! (And I know she'd be welcome, but she's recovering from surgery so it's not an option for her.)

    June 2nd then that seems best for all!!
    Lets say 10 am that should give us an hour for the tour? then we can eat (my favorite part) and exchange stuff and hang out!
    We can meet at the main door of the tour and I dont mind holding a sign with my name so you can find me!lol. However I am not sure how to actually get to the factory! lol!@!@!:D
    I can bring some potatoe salad to share and we can each take care of sandwiches for our own family. OHHHH I am very excited.!!!!!!!!!!
    I never in a hundred years would have imagined that I would get to meet some of you wonderful people! I wish everyone could come that would be AWESOME!!:cool: OK back to reality now!
    I live only about 45min to 1 hour from Hershey! So 10 am is not to early for us!

    What do you all think???

    yeah! can't wait

    10:00 is fine with me!
    Jimmie Lu- if you can get to Hershey, you can find the Chocolate Factory- they have everything well marked. How would you be going? I will be coming down 22/322, so I'll be crossing the Clarks Ferry Bridge; if you need me to, I can meet you somewhere and you can follow me.
    I, too, cannot believe that we're actually meeting. It will be so nice to put faces with the names. And, I think it will be so nice for the kids to meet and get to know each other.
    Oh, Jimmie Lu, that reminds me- I was looking at the size 8 outfit that I had laid out and the shorts were stained. Let me know if you don't find another size 8 anywhere; I will just go somewhere and buy one (I want them to have nice stuff!) Right now, I just have the crayons, and a size 3T outfit. Is there anything else you still need?

    Jimmie Lu~
    I got your PM and have your numbers written down. My cell phone isn't working right now. If I get a new one, or have it working by next week, I'll e-mail you with my number (in case you get lost!)
    You should be fine though, if you've been to Hershey before.
    How many gallon bags do you need? What kind of shampoo (are you looking for children's shampoo)? Let me know. I can pick up some of each.
    Heidi

    It would be really fun to go along! Maybe you can plan that for us sometime. Since I just finished The Purpose Driven Life, I'm feeling a bit guilty that I'm not going with you on your short-term mission trip. But, I guess any help "behind the scenes" is good too.
    More than anything, I'd just like for you to bring a baby home for me!

    I will try to pick up some more shampoo. Hubby is taking me out today - its my birthday! :D I will look for baby shampoo.
    10:00 am sounds great to meet. I just found out that the mother of the little girl we are adopting would like to see her for a day and its the 2nd. Ug! I agreed to an open adoption and need to keep my word. So the 2nd still works for us, I just wont have my 4yr with me now.
    Anything else you need Jimmie Lu for your trip????

    bring pictures

    Crystal-
    Please make sure you bring pictures of your 4 yr. old along. I was hoping for she and Gracie to meet! Oh well, I understand. I don't know if I could handle an "open adoption"- I'm sure it takes some patience.
    Can't wait to meet you!

    Crystal, would it be appropriate for the birth-mom to join us? It would sure give her an idea of what us hs'ers were like. Just a thought. My 4yo won't be coming; it's just going to be a "girls trip". He and Daddy will spend the evening together (and Daddy will watch all the horrid movies that I won't let him bring in the house while I'm home, LOL!)

    Jackie - The birth mother is actually a friend of the family and our hsing is one of the reasons she liked us and came to us with her child. She is picking up Jessie on June 1st and she lives in Delaware so it probably wouldnt work for her to join us. We include her in some things, but need to draw a healthy line. She has been known to over step where our family begins and her relationship ends. It does require a lot of patience and prayer, but I know Jessie is to be with us and our family. Heidi I will bring pictures!
    I am looking forward to meeting you all!!!

    Crystal:)
