I'm so thankful for friends. Friends are one of the greatest blessings the Lord has given us here on this earth! I'm thankful to have friends from elementary, Jr High and High School years, College and now in the post-college/parenting years! Some I've been friends with for a long time and some only for a year! I love how it's so easy to pick back up where you left off with the friends who have stuck by like a sister. I hope when our boys are older, they remember the friendships they have made even at this young of age. I'm so thankful to know the moms and their dedication to love and serve Christ and their family spurs me on to do the same!!!!
Well, speaking of friends, one of mine went away for the night while her hubby preached at a church in Northern California. We had the fun chance to watch her boys while they were gone and had a great time!! Gabe and Weston are such cuties!!! Hopefully, our boys stay friends for awhile!! Here's some things we did while mommy and daddy were away!! =)
Another friend of mine from High School, Laurie, came out to San Diego for a family vacation for a few days so we were able to meet up in Newport Beach to enjoy the sunshine, ocean and just catch up!! We've been friends since 7th grade and have stayed in touch ever since. She is such a great friend and am glad we can have little times to see each other! Our kids LOVED playing together, especially the two older boys! Wish they lived closer!!!!!
Colin and Jacob could have played all day and night together!!! They were great! Colin is just a few months older than Jacob.
Here's Jackson's little play buddy, Cameryn. =) They had a great time too! Cameryn turned 1 a few months ago...and weighs more than Jackson! She's such a cutie!
They ran and ran and ran up and down the beach!!! Got a good workout! here's they are "surfing" in the water.. =) Maybe one day Jacob will use a board!
Finally, since we are on the topic of friends...I pray these two remain best friends their whole life. They love playing together and I love watching Jackson look up to his big brother and Jacob taking good care of Jackson (usually!!). Let's hope it stays this way!!!
