More chill, Brazil, and feeling the thrill

Before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony. Mama and Deborah took a stroll around the grounds, and then were ensconced as the final few guests arrived . . .

. . . and we all took our seats . . .

. . . including Jen and Steven, who had flown in from a wedding in Brazil the day before. Yeah, Brazil. And we thought that we were tired. They were rock stars though, and rallied, staying until almost everyone had left. It was great to catch up with them, and Mama scheduled time this week to pick up some of Jen's maternity clothes, which will be supercool.

The further along we get into this thrilling parenting adventure, the more that I find it's like the AIDS Ride (the rolling community that was the ride itself, not the crushing heartbreak that came with the disclosure of the terrible financial returns) or the Telluride Bluegrass festival--we've become members of an extended family, whose members are all around us and dispersed around the globe. They're people who we've known all our lives, and strangers who we may never meet, but we're all in this together, and they not only want us to succeed, but will do whatever it takes to help us succeed.

It's a feeling that warms us and humbles us.
