our company.

A few months ago one of Paul's dearest friends from his old stompin' grounds {Tracy, CA} sent me an email that they were coming to Utah. Of course I jumped at the chance to have them visit us. They gave me free rein to plan their vacation days, and I was only a tiny bit nervous they weren't going to have fun. We figured out we haven't seen them since Savannah was 2ish. Yup, long overdue visit. 
It was the most chill, fun, amazing time we have spent with friends in a long time. It was so nice to hear Paul laugh, and laugh really hard. It was fun to get to know Christina, and feel like we were old friends too. It was lovely to watch our kids instantly connect, and have a blast together.
We went the Museum of Natural Curiosity, the "zip line park", Liberty Park, took a tour of the Conference Center, danced in the rain, played on the slip 'n' slide, ate lots of food, and talked until way after our kids were suppose to be in bed.
Savannah cried herself to sleep the night they left. I was left wondering why all the people I love the most have to live so far away. It was such a highlight of our Summer.
Bess Family,

We love you.
We miss you.
We should see each other sooner rather than later.

Aww thanks. You guys were the nicest hosts, we had a blast while there. I too cried myself to sleep.....every night we parted ways. If I was into blogging, you guys would definitely be an entry. We love you all too, and it won't be so long again before we get together and act like teenagers!

Love when old "single" friends become family friends. That's the best!
