We were so excited to have our friends the Kayles to our home for lunch. Christy and I were best friends in high school and then our husbands ended up both going to Southeastern, so we were able to spend a great year together in seminary learning how to be new mommies together! Mike spent 6 weeks at Ft. Jackson near Columbia completing training to be an army chaplain so we were able to see them on their way back to Wake Forest.
Here we are with all FOUR of our babies! Brody (15 months), Logan (3 1/2), Anna Kate (2 1/2), and Caroline (8 months)
After they headed on their way, Anna Kate and Caroline went down for naps so they could rest up for more fun! Our friends the Brennans joined us for chicken and veggie shishkabobs which Luke marinated and grilled to perfection! Anna Kate helped me make this lovely fruit platter and was quite proud of her creation!
Here are our girls with the Brennans' little girls Alice (just 2 weeks older than AK) and Heidi (5 months). Not super easy to get pictures of four baby girls age 2 and under, but we certainly tried!
Alice and Anna Kate
This one makes me laugh because AK is always "mothering" (aka bossing) Caroline. Here she is trying to keep her from crawling away!
And these next few actually turned out decently!
After dinner we made a last minute decision to throw bedtime out the window and head to Sandhills to let all the little girls see the fireworks show! After some initial uncertainty from Anna Kate, they all LOVED watching them! We had a great time celebrating our freedom!
