I definitely think I’ve used this song as a title before. Oh well. We’ll all survive 😀
Things are still incredibly busy but I love it. This last week our friends Lauren, Gene and Sidney came to visit. They were here for about 24 hours, so though the visit was short it was a lot of fun. We played games, went for a couple walks and hung out. We took them to MOX Boarding House for dinner. We played SuperFight! and enjoyed some time with good company.
Once we came back, we played Sushi Go, Exploding Kittens, and Coup. We also re-introduced Gene to the Lion King on my Super Nintendo. He and Sidney played it for a while, and we all went to bed.
The next day, we went for a walk down to the local pastry shop, Belle Pastry. After breakfast we walked home, played some more games (Sidney and Gene played WiiU, and Lauren and I played Sushi Go.) Then we went to Uwajimaya and for a walk at the Bellevue Botanical Gardens. Once we returned home it was time for them to pack up and head up north to visit their friend Elisabeth.
I am so glad they were able to join us for the short time they were here. I wish it were longer, but now its our turn to visit them! I hope that one day this year we’ll be able to fly to Denver and spend a couple days with them. You forget how wonderful people are when you only get to video chat with them once a month.
Dinner at MOX
Then, the next day, we had our friends Tim and Caroline over for a game night. We played Coup, and Sushi Go with them. Caroline had to leave early but we also played RhinoHero and Love Letter.
Mitchell and I also played a round of Card Wars this week.
Today was super bittersweet. On one hand I got to go to the beach, and have a BLAST with 5 fab kiddos, and my mom. On the other hand, I had to say goodbye to two bright beautiful fantastic little girls. I cried for at least an hour, and am still teary eyed. No one sitting in my back seat belting out at the top of her lungs and dancing like a mad woman. No one sitting in the passenger seat telling me how awesome her day was. No one to help me manage the kiddos. No one to wake up, and hear “ehhhh” when I pull the blankets off their tootsies. No one to take forever getting ready so we can go to work on time. I’m really truly heart broken. Those girls mean the world to me.
We had such a fun week, and I’m truly heart broken I won’t see them again before they head back home. /pity party. On with adorbs photos.
