California Adventures

Dave and I had so much fun on our last trip to Northern California.
First, our friends Teddy and Debbie and their little boys came all the way from the Central Valley to spend time with us. We played at the park, had several meals together and generally just enjoyed each other's company.

Then, I got to see another old friend, Briana, who lives with her husband and 3 (!) kids right down the street from my parents' house (she's on the left). My wonderful friend Sarah (on the right) flew in from Southern California to spend a few days with me and help us put together our baby registry at Target and Babies R Us. It was unbelievably fun and I'm SO thankful she was there to tell us which diapers and car seats and strollers are worth buying.

Here we are in downtown Lost Gatos getting ready to eat a delicious meal (although Sarah's wasn't very delicious) at Willow Street Pizza.

God has blessed me with some absolutely amazing friends!

What a blessing to have been given the gift of three true friends. The joy that you all have with being friends is truly evident in each of your smiles!
