A Trip to the Park

Today we took a short day-trip to visit one of my dear friends, Juliana. She and I have been friends since I was a teenager. Back then, I use to make the 3 hour drive to the coast to visit her ALL THE TIME, especially in the summer! Now that we are both married with children, we aren't able to get together near as much, but we still try to once or twice a year. We have been talking about meeting half way (at a park) for months, but the weather and our schedules were not cooperating. We finally were able to make it work. It made for a busy day, since I also had Little Flowers this evening, but it was SO worth it!! It was great to be able to visit with Juliana, and our children had so much fun playing together.

(Can you tell that my boys *love* their new little league hats!?!)

Hopefully it won't be too long before we can get together again!!

I wasn't going to post these next three, but changed my mind. ;) Snuggles was running from me, and wouldn't look at me for anything! In the last picture you can see that he is trying his hardest not to smile!! He is so funny!

Well, time to get some sleep... Tomorrow is going to be another busy day including a field trip to the airport followed by baseball practice for the boys. I'm am really looking forward to the weekend, when (hopefully) I can start to catch up with everything that hasn't been getting done this week... Goodnight, God bless!


  1. What a beautiful park! You are inspiring me to get the camera out more this spring and take more pictures of my kids---they are growing up so quickly!

  2. the cleaning can wait, jessica. the kids and beautiful days at the park won't! i especially love the pictures of your little guy in his hat and sweater. very cute! =)

  3. Aw, yes, can you tell that I do too!! I always seem to be putting that particular sweater on my little Snuggles. It just looks so cute on him!

    I love taking pictures outside in the Spring!!

  4. Great pictures.

    Sadly, I just can't seem to keep up with blogging with my recent computer malfunction. But I am working on it. I am taking the kids to see the musical WICKED in Portland tomorrow. We are excited.

  5. What a bunch of cutie pies! I'm really glad you posted those last three pics--so sweet!
