We spent one of the days with them in Seattle. On the left is Claire and her little girl on the ferry ride over. People kept thinking my little Magnolia was Claire's baby. Looking into all of their beautiful blue-ish eyes, I can definitely see a resemblance.
We also spent a day out at the lake house. I got such a kick out of how much fun all the kids were having in the pool. Claire's kids are water babies (her super cute son is in the picture above) and I was so happy about that. My kids (who love water but are more reserved) were suddenly jumping off the edge of the pool and dock. It was awesome!
The daddies took kids out on the jet ski! And while I don't have time to post a photo, Grandpa pulled the kids behind the boat on the intertube--that was another first for my kids. I was all smiles watching!
Maggie and Claire's sweet daughter hit it off! We've somehow managed to get them together nearly every year, and it seems like the older they get the better friends they become. Claire and I are hoping they room together at college someday. :)
Oh, just a cute baby on a beach towel. Love her!
Magson conked out in Seattle. I couldn't believe he would sleep like this! I took like 15 pictures, I was so impressed.
Anyway, these few (and extremely random) pictures don't do justice to the fabulous, one-of-a-kind time I had with Claire and her beautiful family. Their visit was everything I hoped it would be, plus some. I couldn't help but cry when they left. I was planning on getting up to see them off, as well as get a photo of Claire and I together, but we had stayed up so late talking the night before and they left even earlier in the morning than planned (5am), that I didn't wake up. I frantically peeked out my bedroom window when I did wake up, and sure enough, they were gone. All I have to say about that is, please come again! We miss and love you guys so much!
Coming soon: a photoshoot featuring their adorable family!
