Since we moved from Oklahoma last year we have not been able to see Lindsey and her family too often. But, last month Lindsey, her husband, Michael, and her daughter, Bailey, all flew in to visit us for an extended weekend! We had a great time - although we didn't do much, but when you are with your best friend you don't need to do much! We went out to a favorite local Mexican restaurant one night for dinner. Afterward, Jeff and Michael had some "bonding time" at another little Mexican restaurants bar while the girls stayed home and ate ice cream! Sunday night we had reservations at Ruth's Chris. We were worried for a bit about being able to make it since we got a couple inches of snow that day. By evening the roads were clear and we were able to go out for a very nice dinner while the boys stayed home with Aunt Amy and Gandi.
Monday Jeff had to return to work. The girls went to the mall for a quick trip while Michael stayed home and took a nap with the boys! That evening I had to say a sad good bye to my best friend at the airport. The only thing that made this good bye not quite as sad was knowing that I was going to be taking my turn to fly back to OK to see her and her newborn baby only 6 short weeks later! I can't wait to make the trip which is now only 2 weeks away. She has not had her baby yet, but is due before I get there. I can't wait to see all of them again!
Nothing beats the companionship of a best friend! I have been very blessed! I love you Lindsey!
(Of course I only ended up with one picture of us the whole weekend, but it is better than nothing! Lindsey was 34 weeks and I was 17 weeks.)
