A great weekend in pictures

We had a great weekend. First one of my dearest, but unfortunately not nearest, friends came to visit with her 3 year old daughter. Daniella was one of my closest friends and roommates in law school. She's the kind of friend that you can see once a year yet still feel like you saw each other yesterday. Here's the two of us and us with our kids.

The boys had a soccer game Saturday morning, and despite a terrible cold, poison ivy and frigid weather, Josh insisted on playing. (I would have told him no if he hadn't already missed a game due to illness a few weeks ago. Plus, he didn't have a fever. Just so you know.) The boys' coach was unable to be there, so David stepped up and did a great job coaching on one of the fields.

After the game, we headed over to Montgomery to go meet some other friends at the zoo. Ben graduated from law school with David and me (and Yella), and we had not seen him since his wedding, so we were excited to see him and his wife, Jerusha, and their little girls.

Lauren had a great time with their daughter Grace who is only a few weeks older than she.

Ethan was our resident navigator, enjoying looking at the pictures on the map to tell us what animal we should see next.

Upon returning from the zoo, we headed to mom's to have dinner with the family and celebrate David's birthday.

I love that in one day I was able to see two old friends and have my kids play with theirs. In the morning, Lauren was hugging Yella's daughter:

In the afternoon, she was hugging Ben's:

And, she ended the evening in true affectionate Lauren style by getting in one more hug with one of her two favorite uncles.
