Sunday Snaps: Claire!

If you read my blog, you know my beautiful friend, Claire. We met in college about ten years ago (my, that makes me feel old) and have remained so close. It was a dream come true for me when her family came and visited us for five days. While they were here I kept looking at our husbands and our kids in amazement because Claire and I used to dream about who we'd marry and what our kids would be like and poof! Here we all were, loving every minute together.

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!

Random: Magson loves watermelon. Even the rind. Ew.

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!


  1. oh my goodness! i can't believe magson fell asleep like that either!

  2. LOVE that magson could sleep like that! haha! I would've taken that many pictures, too! =) I'm glad you had a good visit with your friends!

  3. I think it's so good for the soul to have visits from our dear friends, especially when they're in the same stage of life--little kids, etc. I can't wait to see the pictures of Claire's family!

  4. This whole thing just made me smile.=) I can remember you two connected at the hip. My roommate, Mikaila's family and our family went to the beach together last week and our kids loved each other too. Fun times.

  5. Such cute kiddos! Glad you all had so much fun together! That's hilarious that little man was actually sleeping like that!!

  6. Wo, it's suddenly working now and I can leave a comment! Yay!
    I still can't believe we got to come visit you guys! What a fun time!! Those are great pictures! I can't wait to see more :) I still can't believe Magson fell asleep like that! Not only in that position, but in the middle of the busy hussle and bustle of Pike Place!

  7. p.s. I didn't realize I had so many freckles! That top picture shows a lot of them....
