When your best friend comes to visit and brings her husband and her kids, your house comes alive with noise, toys, piles of laundry, happy dogs, and life.
For the fourth year in a row, my friend Sarah came to visit and to go to the Minnesota State Fair.
Joining her and her daughter Molly for the first time this year was her husband and their second daughter, baby Mia. I love that our crew keeps growing. (Can’t wait to see who is new next year!)
Grateful we now have a minivan. Four adults + three car seats is a tight squeeze!
(Borrowed this Double Bob from my friend Karla, and I don’t want to give it back!)
We went out to eat, played in the playroom, went on walks, went to the Fair twice (once with kids and once without), went swimming and just enjoyed spending time together.
On Sunday, after a morning at the swim pond, we just hung around and watched Molly’s favorite movie—Rio. It gave me a little glimpse into how it would be with a big ole family. Loud. People always talking over the movie. Maybe a baby always crying. But good. So, so good.
And of course we also had to squeeze in our annual photoshoot.
Good friends are a gift from God.
