Family Fun Day

Family Fun Day was relaxing and low key this week. And believe it or not, I took no pictures the whole morning =) But we started off the day with Norwegian pancakes. If you've never had Norwegian pancakes, you'll have to invite yourself over next time. You can't have a bad day when you start it with Norwegian pancakes!

We then took a trip to the gym to work off those pancakes =) Then spent the rest of the morning at Dunn Bro Coffee. Twice a month they do free kids activities in the coffee shop and this Friday was card making day. The girls had fun. I was even talked into getting them this Vanilla Crema something or other for them to split. I clearly did not think that decision all the way through however. While it did not contain coffee, it contained tons of sugar. The time between the coffee shop and nap time was spent running the kids in the backyard =)

After naps, we went over to our great friends house for dinner. Not only are they are friends, but our kids are the best of friends. We got in the car at the end of the night and Avery got really quiet. Suddenly she said, "I'm gonna miss Connor." He is her very best friend.












Their oldest kid is 3 months older than Avery.













Their middle kid is 1 week younger than Elliana.











And their baby is 2 months younger than Justus. We have so much fun when we're all together!



They move on Tuesday and we had to spend one last night as families together. We'll just say I only cried once at their house, twice on the way home, and three times on Saturday. But more about that at a later time! We love you McManus family and will miss you greatly! Thanks for spending Family Fun Day with us!

I will not cry...I will not cry...I will....oh forget it :tears: We will miss our favorite friends in the whole world. When I started crying earlier Connor said "No Mommy it's okay I'm going to be Avery's best friend forever, so you don't have to cry." What a wise little man....
