Growing Families

Lance and Kelli stopped by our house today to show off their new baby boy and to say thank you for watching Alyssa while they were in the hospital all day. They also invited us to go out to dinner with them Friday night. Rachel wasn’t feeling well today so I took her place and walked to the school to pick up Gracie as she came out. It was fun just walking home with her. I can’t believe how big she is getting.

Friend Night

We had a “party” of sorts with Rachel’s friends. I say Rachel’s friends because they were her friends growing up and in high school. But over the years I have gotten to know them well and they are “our friends.” I’m glad that they keep in touch and its fun now that they are also having kids so our kids get together as well on these friend nights.
