Both dh and ds are feeling fine after their respective surgeries, so it looks like we'll be attending on Saturday. With the distance and time of the party, we'll stay in the city overnight (and, we can take ds to the new "Transformers" movie while we are there, too).
And, given all your thoughts, we'll bring a gift.
But, as she and her husband live over 300 miles away, and we have NO idea as to their needs, desires or their taste in anything (no registry and the parents haven't a clue), we'll just get them a gift card and make it easier for everyone.
I'm thinking Amazon, as it offers just about everything known to mankind!
Dh thinks either Home Depot or Lowe's. We don't know if they are DIY-types or if they garden or anything. But, there is a high probability that both of these stores are to be found fairly near where they live (BIG city). Dh thought there would be something they could find at either store.
What do you think??
If you say Amazon, I need to order it today (it would arrive before this coming Saturday, the day of the party).
We can always pick-up the HD or Lowe's on our way to the party, should you all think that is a better choice.
I can get a wedding card before Saturday and place the gift card inside.
I appreciate your replies!!!
By the way, I did RSVP awhile back, explaining about dh and ds surgeries, saying we wouldn't know until the day before (or, the day of) the party. They said that was fine, they didn't need a "body count." It is an open house-type gathering lasting 3 hours (knowing the other invitees, it will probably last longer), with a large buffet being served. Our 3-person presence (food-wise) wouldn't make a difference.
