Hannah and I are blessed to have many wonderful friends whom we spend a lot of time with. We get together with many of them on a regular basis but due to our small home it’s difficult for us to host gatherings. In the summer all that changes as my parents kindly open their home to not 1 but 2 group gatherings which allows us to invite friends over.
In July it was a group of 4 families whom we get together with almost on a monthly basis. Our kids have grown up together and often refer to one another as cousins. (One other family is part of the group too but live a distance away so we included them via Face Time!) The day started out sunny and everyone quickly jumped into the pool!
This past weekend was beautiful as we hosted a Family Day Celebration for a group of families from our agency that travelled to China 10 months after us. I got to know them when Hannah was just a baby and I was invited to join them for their travel meeting and answer questions about our time in China. Little did I know that they would welcome Hannah and I with open arms and include us in many group celebrations since then. So thankful for this group of friends too!
I saw something new on TV the other day and decided to give it a try and it got 2 thumbs up all ‘round. Individual dessert pizzas made on the BBQ. It was neat to see how unique each person made theirs! Yummo!!!
