Our long lost friends

We got some pretty special visitors today!

We met Nick and Angie 4 or 5 years ago when they were investigating The Church. During the 2 years they lived the Buffalo area they were invited to church by their new neighbors (Marilyn and Kirk Chambers), they investigated The Church, were baptized, and a year later sealed in the Temple with their little daughter Olivia. Then they moved away to New Jersey. We were so fortunate to have met them and enjoy this 2 year journey with them. They are a great family- we've missed them!

Now they have 2 more kiddos to add to their family (Sophia and Nico) and they are moving again. Lucky for us we live somewhere they have to drive straight through on their way to west coast.

We had so much fun catching up with the Brandt's- hanging out this afternoon and through dinner. Of course we had to take them to Jeni's for ice cream this afternoon too! Thanks for paying Nick! I really didn't mean for that to happen! I still owe you!


Jackson has started swimming lessons. He's not comfortable putting his head under the water and his baptism is only about a month away. He's not a swimmer at all either so this is important for his safety. We'd done a parent-child class a while back, but he clung to me a lot. This time around its private lessons at the YMCA.

His teacher is Tara. During the school year she's a Special Ed teacher. Perfect for Jackson! She's so patient and so good at keeping his confidence up. :)

Hoping this works! I may blog again- at least quick posts- if this works!!

We were invited to a Welcome to Summer party this week. The kids had a blast- especially with the shaving cream fight!
