Fun with the Nielsons!

This past weekend some of our best friends the Nielsons came to stay with us. They live about 5 hours away in Wyoming. This is the closest we've lived to each other since were all living in Lewiston, ID in 2006. We were so close...They were there the day Cory and I were married in the temple for eternity. They were there while we all had to endure lamaze class. I miss hanging with Laura, being preggers together (ok, maybe I don't miss that part!) and having our first babies just 2 weeks apart. I feel like we helped keep each other stay mostly sane in those first couple of years. Lauren and Makayla were of course the best of friends whether they knew it or not! I have sooo many pictures of their first 2 years together but of course they are on our computer that is packed away. Kasey and Cory were always having fun going shooting or playing wiffle ball. They are 2 of the funniest guys I know and it's even better when they're together!
Now Kasey and Laura have 3 beautiful little girls. It was fun having 5 girls in the apartment for the weekend. There was lots of dress-up and barbie playing going on. We had good times going out to eat, going to the Zoo, shopping, and of course Cory and Kasey got in some wiffle ball, putting at our putting green, football tossing and anything else they could think of!
Many times over the weekend we heard Lauren and Makayla stating that they are best friends. It melted my heart since it was so sad for Lauren to be parted from her first best friend 3 years ago. They held hands practically all weekend and even attempted a "sleep-over" their first night here. It lasted till midnight when we had to split them up!
Thanks so much for this highlight of our time in Denver guys! We love you!
- somehow I ended up with NO pictures of Laura and I! SAD!

Fun at the zoo!

I didn't think it was possible for anyone to be as funny as Cory. Gotta love the wiffle ball!
