Goodbyes

Last night some of our best friends threw us a going away party. We had a wonderful time swimming, eating some yummy ribs, and visiting with good friends. It was definitely hard saying goodbye at the end and tears were shed, but I know these friendships will last a lifetime.

We have been busy packing up the house and getting ready for the big move. I am leaving Thursday with the boys and heading to Tyler to spend some time with my family before making the drive down to Harlingen in early July. Travis' plan is to pack up the U-haul on Thursday and head down to Harlingen on Friday and then start work on Monday. Our lives are crazy right now and I don't really see it settling down anytime soon! Here are some pictures from the party last night.

I love this picture of Laura and Marley.


Sweet Daniel, one of Cooper's buddies from church.


I love this sweet picture of Hudson.


I think the men had more fun with the water guns than the kids.



Cooper and Daddy enjoying the pool.


Sweet Coop!


Tyler is obsessed with goggles right now. I really need to buy him a pair!


Oops! Somebody found the chocolate chip cookies!


Shelby


Uncle Ross had some new friends by the end of the night. The little girls love him!


I love this picture of Jeremy with his kids.


Sweet Natalie! I love miss Natalie.


Tyler and Natalie giving hugs as we were leaving. This picture is a keeper for their wedding video, right Laura?



Travis and I have been so blessed to have GREAT friends here and leaving them is probably the hardest part about moving. They have become our family here. We have such a unique friendship with three other couples. The wives and husbands all get along wonderfully as well as the 13 kids between us and I just think it is rare. I treasure these friendships so much.

Saying goodbye to Candice. She is the sweetest person you will ever meet. She has a huge heart and is one of the most compassionate people I have ever met. She is always full of wisdom and encouragement. Her family is about to embark on an adventure of their own and I can't wait to see what God does in her life.


Saying goodbye to Laura. She is the hostess with the mostess! She is the crazy one that keeps us laughing and she ALWAYS has a smile on her face. She is one of the most generous people I know and I have been blessed by her many times.


Saying goodbye to Ashley. Ashley is fabulous in every way. She amazes me so much. She is blessed with the ability of leadership and inviting people in and making them feel welcome. She is probably the biggest reason the four of us are so close.

I love you girls and I can't wait to get together for girls weekends!!!
