We have been fortunate to have some good friends in town within the past week! Saturday my friends Christy and Jen came with Jen's boys Decovin (2 1/2) and Camden (6 months). I had SO much fun with them! We had lunch at Japan Express (Christy's favorite!) with Sam & Amy, then hung out at our place for the day. We had an impromptu purse party and got some adorable handbags and sunglasses...the kids swam in the little blow-up pool outside (thanks again for the air compressor, Dad--it was a lifesaver!!)...then Jen grilled dinner for us (tenderloin and grilled veggies--YUMMY!!). They are two of the most fun girls I know--I wish I would have taken more pictures, but all I took was of Sophie and Decovin in the pool. AND one of Sophie's waterlogged diaper...I SWORE I put a swim diaper on her, but

Today was the last day of Summer Play Day at church, so now the kids are stuck with me on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. It's going to challenge me to be as entertaining as the Summer Play Day staff, but I'm up for the challenge! We'll miss it--I know they've enjoyed it.

Today our friend Gina and her daughter Allison spent the afternoon with us--it was a great day! We ate lunch at Old Chicago (my all-time favorite), then hung out at our place while the kids napped. They are a blast to have around--I wish we lived closer so we could see them all the time. Gina is a great mom and is so comfortable around our kids--I felt like I could completely relax and visit while they were here. Awesome!!

Tonight is the Sneak Peek at Dream Dinners! We all get to make an entree to take home, and get a tour of the facility. I'm so excited! (Partly for the food, but mostly because of all the girls that will be there that I haven't seen in a while--I can't wait!!)

Speaking of food, this is what a 22-month old will do to an unopened package of graham crackers if she really wants it...if I hadn't caught her red-handed, I would have thought we had mice....

Thanks again for having us over to your CUTE CUTE house! I had so much fun! I wish we lived closer together! Missing you already!
