Getting together with Old Friends

Jonah and Madelyn playing "boyfriend and girlfriend"
Jaime was my first really great friend after Jonah was born. Madelyn was born a couple of months before him and we started walking together everyday when they were just a few months old. We hung out all the time and eventually had other children that are right around the same ages. It was so great to get together with them! We had lunch at a cute little cafe and then went to Becky's and talked forever while the kids played. It is so great to be able to talk like we saw each other yesterday even though we hadn't seen each other for a year! I had never even met Brinleigh in person. (She is basically an angel baby). It was so nice that the kids played for hours and never fought or started crying. I had so much fun and realized (Again) what a great friend Jaime is! It is so nice to have someone listen and really just love you for what you are. I miss her and her family so much!

It is definitely beautiful down there. I am glad you had a good trip. I love when my kids play well with all of the other kids in a family. It makes my life so much easier.
