One of the things about my move to California that I am so thankful for are the friends that I have here! Not only are there two of my childhood friends that live here and attend the same church but there are several other people that were college friends or married college friends! How nice it has been to be able to have close friends that all know each other right off the bat!
Last Saturday...all of us got together to basically have one last "party" before the school year started and our lives were busy once again! It was such a wonderful time and we made some great memories!!!
When I stop to think about it...it is so weird to think that I have close friends that have children! It's quite a crazy thing to think about! Wow...and even more crazy is to think that that could be me?!?! (Well..maybe not for a few more years!...:) Anyhow...the point of all that is that these babies in my life are absolutely ADORABLE!!!! If you know me, you know I love babies!!! I fell in love with babies at my old job in Indiana..where I worked in the Infant room! These two babies (Leilani and Bryce) are so different in so many ways but both have me wrapped around their finger! Not just me..you will see in the pictures below, we are all in love!!!
Bryce...just look at him!!!
He's almost standing up on his own!
Leilani....Big eyes and so sweet!
I think he feels just a little smoothered when we are both around!

Another great thing about our night together was the food!!! It was all very yummy!
Dan was the grillmaster!
The rest of the guys were his moral support :)
All of our preparation was done and we were just waiting on the men...
Michelle made our dessert! It was fantastic!!
The last part of the evening was spent playing games...which included..screaming, laughing, yelling, more laughing... the shedding of tears (on my part) from laughing so hard and great memories made!
(fyi-this week we celebrated our SECOND month anniversary!!) :)
Daniel and Ben were pretty intense during this game! We were playing Apples to Apples...haha...they were the main reason for the tears!
Bryce was getting in some good laughs as well!
What a wondeful way to end the summer!
