One of the great things about visiting my parents is the chance to catch up with old friends. Even more fun: several of them now have children the same ages as our girls.
My friend Liz lives in Nashville and was in the area visiting her family. Her two girls are just a few months younger than Kaia and Sierra. (Also note the amazing animal alphabet art poster Liz made for the new baby. It's now hanging happily in the girls' room!)
Casey and I have known each other for ... well, let's just say I can't recall a time in my life when I didn't know Casey. Her son, Colton, is just a month younger than Sierra. Sierra and Colton had their first "play date" when they were just 2 and 3 months old, and we always try to get together when we are in Galena. You can tell they have a great time together!
And finally: cousins are friends, too! These are for my mom, who wanted an updated photo of all her grandgirls. Put your best "cheese face" on!
