we had visitors this week!
My friend Suzanne and her adorable daughter, Mary Bullock, came to see us! Suzanne was the first friend I made at UNC our freshman year and we have been close ever since.
Since she lives in Florida we don't get to see each other as often as we would like, but whenever I see her it feels just like old times. Except with a lot less alcohol. And we go to be bed a lot earlier. And we might have even matured a little since college.
It is so fun to see our kids play together.
Mary Bullock thoroughly enjoyed Riley's play kitchen and I am trying to convince her Mama that we need to build one for her some day.
Mary Bullock is probably one of the most enthusiastic little babies I have ever met. She is so full of personality.
And she didn't even blink an eye when Riley would throw tantrums because she didn't want to share. MB would just move on to the next toy.
They did their best to break in the playroom. Then we took them to the park in an attempt to wear them out.
They had a great time feeding the ducks.
Riley graciously decided to throw her sippy cup into the lake to share with the ducks. Luckily, a helpful stranger fished it out for us.
In the end, I think they had a great time with each other. Each morning Riley would wake up requesting "Mawwy Boooolllluck"!!
Their last night here we put the girls to bed and Paul stayed home with them while Suz and I went out to a big girl's only dinner. It was so relaxing and fun to catch up on everything without interruptions from flailing toddlers :)
As usual, the visit was too short and we miss them already. Thanks so much for coming to visit us, Suz and MB! It is so nice to have friends like you in our lives! Hope we can do it again soon!
