on thursday marit, miles, and i made a quick trip to athens to visit my sister-in-law, niece, and nephew while my brother was away for a interview/conference. a lot of who i am formed while in college at uga and it is also where adam and i met and dated so the city itself has a lot of nostalgia for me. it was a really sweet visit...kelly and i always have lots of mommy and marriage struggles and victories to share. we also enjoyed a sweet visit with my old college roomie, rachel. it was sooo good to catch up!
this awesome playground is their backyard
these girls are as different in personality as they are in body-type...aida is the extroverted-wear your heart on your sleeve type while marit is more introverted and sometimes aloof. it is fun (and challenging!) to watch their relationship develop.
after hitting up kidsnight at earthfare with all our little people, we put the boys to bed and had a slumber party complete with brownies and icecream and little house on the prairie.
rach and i have not changed all that much in the last 10 years...i have three kids, she's working on her phd, we both have sweet husbands, and are bespectacled. good to see you friend!
this little fellow had 24 hrs of daddy all to himself, but he spent most of the time wandering aimlessly around the house asking where we all were. poor middle child...
for fun, here's a cute one of adam's mom with marit...earlier this week grandma and grandpa so kindly babysat all THREE kiddos for adam and i to go on our first kid-free date in three months. thanks so much!
