Sorry I've been away.
When you are a farmer's wife you never know
when it will be time for a vacation.
Because our vacations are planned around the weather.
And the weather is very unpredictable.
Which means our vacations are unpredictable.
But that keeps us young and spontaneous, right??
So when the rain came, Joel said he was ready to go.
And off to Colorado we went.
I was so excited to spend time with one of my best-est friends.
And to meet this little guy...
My friend Laura had her second little boy three weeks ago.
This is sweet Tanner.
He is just precious.
And so little...at least compared to my chunky monkey.
Laura and I have been friends since fourth grade.
We met when my family moved to Colorado,
and three years later we had to move away.
But Laura is one of those friends
that you can pick up right where you left off,
no matter how long it's been since you have seen each other.
I love that about her.
In fact she didn't even hesitate when I called her on Friday
and asked if we could come on Saturday...
because she didn't just have a baby or anything.
Little Tanner makes Levi look humongous.
Lately people have been telling me that he is a "healthy" little boy.
I think that is their polite way of saying that is a HUGE three month old!
We didn't do a very good job documenting our trip.
Probably because we were too busy holding the babies.
It was pretty laid back.
Just hanging out at the house.
And lots and lots of talking.
I did manage to document our one two trips to Chick-fil-A.
It was so yummy.
This is Tanner's big brother, Hunter.
I am sure that I was chowing down my food just like Hunter was.
Luckily no one took a picture of me.
Levi loved his first trip to Chick-fil-A too.
How couldn't he?
My mouth is watering just looking at these pictures.
Really, it wasn't the hi-light of the trip. :o)
Chick-fil-A, will you PLEASE come to Wichita?
Laura and I did manage to sneak away to do a little shopping.
They had the biggest JOANNS I have ever seen.
It was awesome.
And I went to Home Goods for the first time.
I loved it.
Home Goods, will you PLEASE come to Wichita too?
Joel and Hunter hung out while we shopped.
Hunter loves his Uncle Joel.
It is really sweet.
I just love it when my friends marry guys
who immediately click with my husband.
There is no forced hanging out just because the wives are friends.
I think Michael and Joel could be best friends
even if Laura and I weren't friends.
They are so much alike it is scary sometimes.
And they get in a lot of trouble when they are together.
But we always have lots of fun.
Hunter did so good with the babies.
He is a sweet boy.
And such a good big brother.
And here they are...
Someday, these three will have a lot of fun running around together.
I hope they will be great friends.
Thanks Michael and Laura for letting us come on such short notice.
We loved our time together.
Come to Kansas soon!
