A Visit from Friends

I mentioned this back in my blog post about the 4th of July, but our friends Amy, Erik and their son Duncan had planned to visit us from Seattle. Illness stopped them in July, but they rescheduled for a visit in August! We were so excited for them to come in. I took a half day off work so I could pick them up from the airport and have some chill time before getting the kids.

Bennett immediately wanted to be best friends with Duncan. These two were so cute together. Duncan is about 6 months older than Bennett, so they went back and forth between playing on their own and wanting to be in each other's business.

We had a pretty relaxed weekend, really. We hung around the house a lot, and played in the back yard. Erik got a chance to read to all three kids on a few occasions!

We did go to the little pool in our neighborhood that is perfect for our kids' ages. It's only about a foot deep, so the little ones just wade around the whole time, playing with toys and holding on to a ball.

June and Duncan also had a cute little friendship. Duncan seemed pretty interested in June, and she wanted to help him out in return. Duncan really enjoyed playing with June's horse castle, which has these ramps that allow little horses to move down them. So June would purposefully bring it out and set it up for him because he liked it so much!


We also went out to eat for brunch and then headed to a little park to let the kids run around. This was the one place where we got a group photo!

It was so wonderful to get to catch up with Amy and Erik. Whenever we see them I feel like we are just talking a mile a minute catching up on our lives, what's going on with our families and plans for the future. I love these guys to death, and I think we might have to make a trip up to Seattle to see them next!
