Wonderful Week!

Last week our best friends from California flew in for a week. We had an amazing time with them! The kids had their first cross country meet, in which they went all out for Uncle Stan and Auntie Noel. We spent time with our Florida best friends. Matt and Stan played disc golf three times. Noel and I scrapbooked. We spent an afternoon at the beach. And the four of us adults went to Universal's Islands of Adventure to celebrate Matt's birthday. We talked into the wee hours. We laughed. We made memories. Oh...and we took pictures. Lots of them. And here they are!

Pepper's goal for the race was to keep going the whole half-mile. He succeeded! He only slowed to a walk one time. And he didn't finish last!

Snapper's goal was to run her whole mile and to finish in the top 50. Not only did she run a {nonstop} 8-minute mile, she came in 17th out of 95 girls in her age group!

It was fun having Uncle Stan and Auntie Noel there to cheer them on!

Stan and Noel are Snapper and Pepper's godparents. We cherish our times with them, and hate it that they live 3000 miles away.

Bored in the car on the way home from the beach.

Matt and I spent part of our honeymoon at Islands of Adventure 11 years ago, and Stan and Noel spent part of their honeymoon there 9 years ago. It was so much fun to make a trip back there together! In this photo we're drinking butterbeer (butterscotch+cream soda=beverage bliss) in Hogsmeade. Butterbeer is one of Harry Potter's favorite treats. Being a Harry Potter junkie myself, I had to try it. I was not disappointed!
