|All 10 of us!!!|
we met up with our friends the Marcus' earlier this week at Disneyland. having an annual pass makes you kind of a snob when it comes to waiting in lines, and doing certain things and staying longer than a couple hours...but somehow we managed to stay for 7 hours during a summer day with 6 kids under 6 years old at a super crowded Disneyland and still manage to have fun and *somehow* no tantrums or raised voices...impossible! you say...and i would be one of you chanting also...but then i also know the Marcus' and they are amazing...
jessie was my freshman roommate in college - she was from a small town in Missouri called Joplin and stared at me like i was from a different planet...i was...i was from Orange County...and Todd and Bryan knew each other from their freshman year (they are a year older than us) and hit it off right away. so we all knew each other from before each other...we got married within 3 weeks of each other and when T&J moved to Pasadena we made it a point to hang out once a week...and then kids happened and then a move to Kansas City happened (a couple weeks after we had bryson)
so here we all are...that picture of the boys hanging on the railing and of olive in the stroller makes me so happy! T&J are amazing parents...which is not surprising one bit since they have always been such amazing people. we hope to vacation with them in the future when traveling doesnt feel like a punishment...i am so glad that todd has family out here and that we get to see them as often as we do...although its not nearly often enough, we are so thankful for their friendship and family!
