Friends come to visit!

A few months back our friends Bill & Christie decided they wanted to make a trip to meet all the new additions to not only our family but the Lynne's and the Glupkers as well.

Umm yes please. Im in!!

So after a bit of waiting and planning we finally found a weekend we could all make it work and they all drove in to stay the weekend

8 adults + 9 kids

it was a full house for sure!

But oh so much fun.

Ive already started planning the next 'reunion' (in my head) and hope to have everyone from Erie & our Girls Group who can make it come! It was so good for my soul I want it again!

Friday night the kids immediately hit it off and had a blast:

Saturday was a full day. Lots of food & fun.

Bethany & Josh drove in for the afternoon and it was so fun getting to see Jonah & Vivi too

And then that afternoon I emailed them all and asked when we could do it again.

Im like that girlfriend who calls you after you drop me off and ask when we're going out again.

It just all went too fast!

Thank you Lord that even if we cant be close to family we are still close enough to our friends (who are just like our family) and can have weekends together like this.

Now everyone from Girls Group.. lets get a reunion planned asap!
