If only you lived here..

I say those words at least once a week to my transplanted friend, usually with a "dude" first.  This post is a little overdue but I was waiting for some pictures off Beth's camera before I could publish this.  We've known each other since our days at General Dynamics and have been long distance besties for most of our friendship.  We've spent several long weekends in Florida pre and post kid,  but hadn't seen one another since February.  Our longest stretch to date.  

This visit was the first time Alex and William would meet.  You wouldn't believe it from the picture, but Alex is actually five weeks younger than Wills.  His grandpa said mom and dad should ask Coach Dantonio for a letter of intent now!
Beth and I actually got  married and had both of our babies within five weeks of each other. Yep, that's when Beth announces she is pregnant with number three, Billy will be on a business trip for five weeks.  Ha!

We planned an all day playdate with the kids and a dinner date for just us!  We love getting the kids together, but its hard for us to have a conversation.  Well planned and must each time she visits.
 (nice tv cords...)

Beth is an amazing mom who always puts her boys first.  She snaps over 100 pictures a month and the pictures show just how much she loves her life!  I'm so lucky to have someone who is going through exactly what I am...staying at home with your kids is no walk in the park and it can be lonely.  After a tough day, she is always there to listen and always knows what to say.

Drooling buds!

We saw our friends again to celebrate Christopher's 3rd birthday!  A combined "Cars" themed birthday with his cousin.  Beth's sister made these adorable cakes from scratch...totally inspiring!

Lauren got her first football lesson from Uncle Matt

 and dad:)  It was adorable to watch all the kids play!

Thanks for letting us be part of your day Christopher, my future son-in-law:)

I miss you already and our fingers are crossed that we might get to see you sooner than Christmas!

  1. Awww, thanks for my own post :) I swear, I have conversations in my head with you daily (even though we usually talk in some form DAILY)...just about the little things, "Oh, I have to tell Aubrey this...." or "I have to ask Aubrey about that...".
    Yesterday I asked Matt if there was an app that I could send a song to your phone, I'm pretty sure he's convinced our relationship goes deeper then I let on! Hahaha!

    I love you and your littles! XOXO
