A "suite" update

Because of the fire, our insurance is putting us up in a Marriott Residence Inn. The boys love it because they get to ride the elevator and take turns pushing the buttons. Lincoln loves it so much that he forgot to get off one afternoon when we got to our floor. I was holding Porter and starting down the hall when Ethan yelled, “Mom! Lincoln’s trapped in the elevator!” Sure enough, I turned around to find the doors closing on Lincoln. The elevator started to move, and I could hear him screaming but couldn’t tell if he was going up or down. I ran down the stairs with Porter still in my arms to see if the doors would open on the first floor. They didn’t. I could still hear Lincoln screaming at the top of his lungs. I ran back up the stairs to our floor, and when the door opened, a friendly little Hispanic family was coddling Lincoln, trying to get him to stop crying. He jumped into my arms as I said my thanks. Needless to say, Lincoln is usually the first of the elevator these days.

Poor little Lincoln, he is really young so what a brave guy. That is Suite, that you have a suite!
I bet it is nice to have atleast your own space even though Elaine and Dale are so kind to all to accomodate!

Hi Emery! I found you from Amy's blog. I'm so sorry to hear about your house. That is a scary thing. My mom's was barely saved in the San Diego fires awhile back. It's good to get in touch with you. Your kids are adorable,and you and Greg look great.

Hey Lady!

Just wanted to say that it'll be really fun trying to get to any second floor together after Link's adventure! When I come to visit we'll have to split into escalator and elevator groups and meet-up! :)

I started a blog the other day -

love you and miss you!
