Meeting the Relatives

So we've met up with everyone now except my brother, Mitch, who is out of town on business and will be back tomorrow. Everyone is charmed by Katie and Julie, who have been bundles of energy, but who are now relaxing and possibly napping back in the room with daisy_knotwise while I've run down the hall to Judy and Gary's room to use their Internet connection, since ours is on the same switch with the main lights. (Yes, that seems a little odd.)

We had a nice lunch at the Rainforest Cafe in Grapevine Mills Mall. Everyone but us stayed around to do some shopping after lunch. I did a quick run through Books A Million and grabbed books for Gretchen, Katie, and Julie. I suppose I could have grabbed a book for me, but I have many books at home that still need to be read. :)
