This morning a group of us girls stopped by to pick Jessica up for a non-baby-shower-girl's-day-out! :) I love the top pic of the first collage where Jess is saying to Anitra nd Mary "What are all these people doing here??"
First stop - Dream Nails! Mary had called ahead to let them know that we were coming and when we got there, 3 people were working. One-by-one they trickled in until we had 7 people working on our feet. My guy didn't talk, Katie's lady was telling her about her friend dying and Jessica had a lady say to her "My friend had baby last week - very painful" niiiice. :) We did have fun though - lots of laughs!
Next stop - Olive Garden! YUMMY!! I never thought I was a fan of Olive Garden, but the last 2 times I have been there have been with this group of friends and I do have to say I love that soup that we can't pronounce! :) Jessica got some cute pink and purple girly clothes! So.much.fun!!
We had a great day and I feel so blessed to be surrounded by such great friends!! :)
Leah's birthday was this week, so we had a carry-in lunch for her. Instead of a cake, I made some chocolate-chip zuchinni bread...yum! I love the picture of Leah doing what the card is saying and Cheryl laughing so hard she can't even look at the camera. Fun times! :)
Today Senica turns 5! I cannot believe how all my little nieces/nephew are growing up SO FAST! Senica is starting school and is already reading! She is such a sweet and caring child! Makes me so sad that pretty soon she will be like Janae - almost as tall as me! :( sniff, sniff.
One of my best friends had her 2nd little boy on July 21st. I went over when Parker was about 2 weeks old and got some cute pictures of him and his big brother, Connor. Kim is an amazing mother and an equally amazing friend! Aren't these boys just adorable?!
A few weeks ago, when we still had summer weather, we had our 1st annual Grace Road Trip Reunion. Brian and I hosted the cookout and it was so good to get together with our friends! I cannot believe all the little ones running around!! Good times. :)
