Crashing the Party

We left San Antonio on Saturday morning and stopped at Dave's parents house on our way home. I thought we would visit for a couple hours, then leave in the early afternoon, right around naptime, so that Samantha and Jacob would sleep for at least a good portion of the trip. I knew that it was Zoey's birthday, and I knew that they were having a party. I thought it wouldn't be a big deal, though, because I figured we would be gone before the party started in the afternoon.

I was wrong. About when the party was, that is. It was set to start about 10 minutes after we arrived. Ooops! Yes, we crashed a 2 year old's birthday party...and didn't even bring a card, much less a present! This was the first birthday party Samnatha attended...and she had a VERY hard time sitting down and letting Zoey open her own presents. She did manage it with a little help from Aunt Staci, though.

Everyone was so sweet, even though we crashed the party. They completely welcomed us and didn't mind us being there at all. They also took turns watching Jacob. And Uncle Dave took Samantha swimming just before we left. I wouldn't even know this family if my sister-in-law weren't married to their son, and yet, they treat me as warmly as if we are also related. Thank you, Williams clan! And Happy Birthday, Zoey!
