Val's Wedding

One of my very best friends from college, Val, got married the first weekend in May. We flew to Leesburg, Virginia for the wedding on Thursday and stayed until Sunday. Friday, I went to go get manis and pedis with Val's mom, sisters, and soon to be mother-in-law and we had a great time. Friday evening was the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner and Saturday was the wedding. She was a beautiful bride and I'm so happy her her and her new husband, AJ, as they begin their lives together!

Visit with Becca, Delaney, and Geoff

The Girls



Becca, Geoff, and Delaney came to Des Moines to visit us again in April. Becca and I have a scrapbooking weekend normally once a year here in Des Moines. They came to town on Friday night and we scrapbooked all day (9am-midnight) on Saturday while the boys watched the little girls. On Sunday, we went to church, went out to lunch at Felix and Oscars (one of Jamie's favorite places to eat at when he used to work at the Merle Hay Cinema in high school) and got delicious pizza, and then went to the mall and walked around in the afternoon. We were glad they decided to stay Sunday night as well so we could have the day to hang out, especially since they are moving to Cleveland soon. :(  We will have to find a new location for our yearly scrapbooking weekends!
