This weekend we took a trip up to Lynden to see my best friends from college and go to a baby shower for my friend Courtney. We left Friday after I got off work and arrived in Lynden just before 10 PM. It is a long trip, but always so worth it to see all my best girls! Julie and Chris were so nice to host all of us (5 couples and 8 kids - all age 3 or younger and all boys) at their house. Our families are all growing so much these days that Courtney had to bring her parent's motorhome over so that we had more places for people to sleep. Our time together these days is pretty low key - a lot of taking care of kids, feeding babies and sitting around chatting - but it is so nice to be able to catch up with each other since we are all spread out around the state. The husbands/dads always enjoy getting together as well and spend a lot of time drinking beer and playing poker :-)
It seems like every time we get together (which is only about 3-4 times a year) there are new babies to meet or someone is pregnant. This weekend was the first time that all my friends (except Jess) got to meet Luca and also the first time that most of us got to meet Kyler and Gavin as well. All three boys were born within a month of each other - Luca was born in between Kyler and Gavin. It will be so much fun (and probably a little crazy) when all 3 boys get older and can really play with each other. I am sure Jax will be right in the mix too since he is just a few months older than the other 3.
We had a great weekend with great friends! As usual, it went way to fast and we are already planning and looking forward to the next time we can all get together.
