Adventure Is Out There! Ellie's first adventure.

"From strangers, to friends, to family..." We live by this. Almost a year ago we joined a social club, Neverlanders SC, not knowing what the outcome would be. We just knew that we all shared the same love for Disney. In a matter of months we all grew closer to each other and shared a bond that family shares. New members joined our family and we grew even bigger and closer. As the one year anniversary almost hit its mark, the founders Cyndee and Angel told everyone they had a surprise on September 22nd. We were all excited, but two of us were clueless! We both kept trying to guess what it could be. For close to 3 months we were in anticipation awaiting the day we'd be surprised. Never ever did we expect this whole planning, dedication and heartwarming event would be for just us three. September 22nd comes and Amanda and I wake up in excitement get dressed faster than ever and wait for Jimmy to come to our place so we could leave. This was the first time Jimmy asked to ride with us, which was kinda odd, but we thought nothing of it. Already fashionably late we arrive to the location and noticed some of our friends vests in the car which was kind of odd, but again didn't question it. We walk in to Up theme song playing in the background, we see Travis taking pics from inside a kids replica of the Up House and we see almost everyone including our northern landers and Vegas friends. In total shock I couldn't figure out what was going on. I couldn't figure out that the event that had been planned for months was our very own Up themed baby shower put on by our family. Tears were everywhere. It was the most beautiful feeling in the world! To see strangers who became family throw this for us and put in so much work, time, love and effort to make it so special was simply beautiful. There were Up houses everywhere, there was a Fentons ice cream sign cut out of wood and hand painted, paradise falls jars hand written and full of gum balls, decorations made by our crafters, a stage full of baby presents, delicious smell of food filling the air, but most importantly family that loves us surrounding us. We played games that had us laughing in tears!! Have you ever played put the plunger in the toilet paper roll? Have you ever tried tying your shoe laces with a balloon inside your shirt trying not to pop it? We have! Ellie, Amanda and I are blessed to have this family! They have been there since our love first blossomed to the whole pregnancy and every special moment that is yet to come. Sept 22nd is a day we will always remember. We cherish the love and family we have. Adventure is out there! Thank you to everyone that participated and made this the most special baby shower ever!
