|Leaving them never gets any easier|
Annette's dad has a gorgeous house on Lake Washington so we headed over for a BBQ and way too much food - it was delicious! Since the house is right on the lake, it was a little nerve-wracking trying to make sure the Bambinos didn't fall in which of course meant they wanted to be right at the water line or on the "draw bridge" as they called the dock. It was a constant struggle.
|You'd never know he'd already already been given two and thieved another before I moved them out of reach.|
|I'm not sure what this is about, but it's Bug's new thing and adorable.|
|Who would have known pool noodles were so fun?|
|Even though we don't see each other often, I'm so happy we have a chance to get to know each other's kids.|
When it was finally time for fireworks, the 4 of us watched from a blanket in the grass. I kept thinking how fortunate we were to spend this time together and with good friends rather than crowded across the lake on a beach like everyone else was.
It was their first time seeing fireworks so we let the Bambinos stay up way past their bedtime, eat way too much junk food and get way too close to the water, but we all had a good time. We didn't get home until 11pm - almost 4 hours past their bed time!
|We've been friends for 11 years!|
Love You Bunches,
