Today was a good day. In fact, a very good day. The sun was shining its little heart out, work was great and to top off an already great day, we had a picnic in our backyard with Naomi and the kids.
Unfortunately, Erich has been working INSANELY long days so Naomi is often left alone all evening. If it were me, I would have pulled my hair out by now from the lack of "socializing with adults" but Naomi handles it well ---Naomi, you're such a strong person and a fabulous mother and I admire you for it!
Anyway...I was delighted to get a phone call from Naomi when I walked in the door from work today, asking if we had plans for the evening. We didn't, so I met her at Wal-mart where we picked up a few things and then we came back to our place for a picnic. Jon BBQ'ed smokies and I asked our landlords if they'd mind us using their picnic table---of course, they said yes (they're great that way!) and we spent the rest of the GORGEOUS evening, eating and playing outside.
Konrad and Ava just warm my heart. Every time I see them, I am astounded at how blessed we are to have such an awesome niece and nephew. Naomi & Erich ---your kids are beautiful and we just love them to bits!! Thank-you for sharing them with us so willingly :)
