Weekend visit from a dear friend

My friend Jessica came and spent the weekend with us. We had such a nice time -- she brought her two middle sons (her husband very kindly kept the oldest and youngest and let her make the trip up here!), so our boys played together and we got to sit and talk and (yes, Mom) knit.

We spent a lot of time together when we were growing up -- my dad always called her his "other daughter" -- but this was the first 'sleepover' we've had as adults!

Thanks for making the trip up, Jess...I miss you already! (when are you guys moving up here, hmm?)

Here are some pictures from our weekend...

Frankie & David...
I wonder why they both have guilty looks on their faces?!

Sitting by the pool and knitting
(she got a lot more done than I did, of course...!)

Rylin (who is giving me a dirty look because I told him that at my house, kids who don't stand nicely for a picture have to eat dog food for dinner...he wasn't sure whether or not to believe me!!! :-) ), Frankie, David, & Abigail at the pool

The boys taking an ice cream break
(they played so well together -- it was great!)

Jessica brought a craft for the younger kids --
the boys sat still for a few minutes,
but Abigail, Jessica, & I sat for quite a while and had fun with it!

Saying goodbye -- Jessica & crew headed for home
and we headed for church yesterday morning
