Being Born and Love Thursday

Women of the United States need to be empowered when it comes to making choices about giving birth. This is a step in the right direction.

We visited my sister Susan and her husband and family over the weekend and the kids had so much fun. We went swimming daily had a trip to a water park with a huge steep water slide and spent a few hours enjoying a sculpture exhibit and all of the plants at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Grandpa Sam was there too so he was able to see how big everyone has grown. I am glad we are close enough so we can see each other throughout the year and the kids can make connections with their cousins.They all really enjoy being together and playing nonstop and I get to catch up with Susan too.

The Lovely Fosters!

We had our lovely friends the Fosters here for a long visit. The kids played nonstop and I got to catch up with Tess and hang out with "Baby Libess". She called me "Mama Libess" because we are both Elizabeths.It felt great to have them with us and I wish so badly they were closer. It is really hard to have a friend like Tess move away. I can share everything with her and feel supported by her love and friendship. We would make excellent room mates! Her family is so sweet and fun and just cool to have around. It was a whirlwind of lemonade stands, sleepovers, movies, and playtime here and in the country. We miss them and we love them so much.
