  1. That freezer meals thing . . . I was figuring we'd stop at Costco when we arrive and purchase stuff like that. Feeding us while we're there is the last thing you need to be worrying about now. For the wedding party clothes--only thing left is one dress to sew for Eliza. We have the fabric and are working on the fit with random other fabric. We should probably think about what your Dad will wear other than his suit at some point.
