Our trip to Spokane

Last week I spent 4 days with my best girlfriends and our kids at Cheri's house in Spokane. Well, actually (as Isaac would say), we were all in the same house for only 24 hours, but despite the short time together we had a blast. I arrived on Monday to 85 degree temps, and we spent the afternoon hanging out on the deck and popping a couple bottles of wine. That evening we threw a surprise bridal shower for Kate where things got a little crazy...hence the reenactment of the pyramid pics from when we all lived together in college!

I love these girls so much. They taught me what it means to be a woman and they are like sisters to me. I also love that we're all having kids at the same time so we can share in these experiences together. We did agree, however, that we have to plan a girls' trip when none of us are either pregnant or nursing. In other words, when we're 50...!
