New Friends

We have some wonderful new friends, or at least relatively new in the big scheme of things.  We met them at a park one day several months ago and Lauren & I hit it off so now our kiddos are friends too!  I love all of them, they are so sweet! This is Audrey. 

Here's Lauren.  She's really great, I feel blessed to have met her.

Ava kept "controlling the water with her Water Fairy Powers", it was awesome!

This is Asher.

Alayah's Birthday Party

We've been having so much fun and have been so busy that my photos are getting a little backlogged, I've been meaning to put this post up for two weeks now, but here it is, better late than never, right??
Little Alayah recently turned two, her actual birthday was the 10th but we celebrated it the following Sunday.  The party took place in Chris & D'Auna's backyard, the perfect spot.    There are flowers everywhere, it's just beautiful.  So many friends and family showed up to celebrate our special little girl.   We adore Alayah!!
 Everyone was thrilled with the super pink cupcakes!

 Love her!!

 Cupcake cheers!!  Norah was cracking the grandmas up!
 She is pretty funny!  Isla and Norah were pretty cute together!

 She's adorable!!  I love this picture of Auntie Jessica & Ava!!  All the kiddos helped Alayah open her gifts, it was cute! Super star! Happy Birthday Miss Alayah!!
We couldn't love you more!

Sweet Friends.

Little friends sometimes make the biggest impact in our lives.  We were extra super lucky to be able to have  a beach trip with this family, they are going through so much, it's tricky to make this kind of thing work. 

 This is Hannah & Jack, 4 year old twins.  Both so adorable!!  Little Jack is going through a four year treatment plan for leukemia. It's so heartbreaking and hard to wrap my mind around.  He is the sweetest little thing and aside from watching him do his chemo treatment, he doesn't seem sick.  Of course this isn't always the case, but he was having a good day so we decided to run off to the beach, why not?  Honestly, I'm always a little hesitant to hang out with these guys, if my kiddos got Jack sick I would never forgive myself.  I'm so thankful the stars aligned and allowed us to all come!
 The beach wind wasn't too inviting but we made a point to go down there and play for a bit, the kids LOVE the beach.

 All five.

 So windy!
