Kristin is in the hospital gown. (Sorry Kristin, but it IS on facebook and you look beautiful! Megan is the other adult. ;) Devany is the one in the striped pants. She is Megan's daughter. January is holding Autumn and they are both Kristin's girls. ;)
So, I am really excited because I get to see not one, but TWO of my best friends next week! Pretty soon after college, most of my closest friends moved away, and not just one state over or anything, but on to the other side of the country! Tennessee, Minnesota and Massachusetts! Geesh. What's a girl to do?
Well, next Tuesday Megan is coming into town to meet Sara's new baby, Jessa, and I am going to pick her up from the airport. It will be a quick thing but I am just thankful that I get to see her at all. I'm thankful that Sara lives here, she is so close to Megan she is practically family. (They grew up together in Montana.) And Jason's sister and brother-in-law and their kids live here too. All GREAT excuses to come out here and visit frequently.
Then next Thursday, Emily and I are flying out to Massachusetts to visit the Cooley's/Fish's/DeFilippo's! We are staying with Kristin and Megan's parents, the Cooley's, and we finally get to meet January, Devany and the newest girl in the family, Autumn! Can you tell that I can't wait??!!
We are going to a baseball game one evening in Boston, and we may go apple picking in the New England fall weather! Can you believe that? I always think of the end of Anne of Avonlea when I think of apple picking, when Anne and the once-evil-turned-nice principal are picking apples. :)
It has been three years since we've seen Kristin (she came out to stay with us when my dad died and was a major help) and even longer since we've seen Megan! It's hard to believe that it's been that long.
So. I will obviously have much to post about after we get back. I love my friends and I am so thankful for the chance to see them.
