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!

 This is Ryan, the oldest, he's six.

 Ryan's tooth was literally hanging by a thread, we were all so happy when it finally came out!

 These silly kids came up with a game where each one would stand in the middle of the group and say "Who do I love the most?", then they would run into each others arms & hug.  Love.

Such a great momma!!

 Loving all the love!

 Even with two children, this is how I feel sometimes...
 I love how Ashlie just looks so casual talking to her son, wearing a gorilla mask...

 Little Jackie has clinic including a spinal tap with sedation and chemo today, they are also giving him a ton of steroids which is always really hard on him and the family.
 So if you are one who prays, please say a little prayer for Jack today. 
Love this wonderful family.  It was such a blessing to me to spend some quality time with them! 

Thanks Mom, as always, for making that possible.  : )
