Andrew and Charles are the same age and are good buddies.
We have ten between the two of us :). We did a babysitting swap for a year or so where her and Matt would go out while we watched kids and then the next month Scott and I would go out while they watched our kids. The children loved it and so did we. Lindsay has also taken our family pictures for years and I got to do a few birthday cakes for her family. Lindsay is also about the most patient, loving person I know. And she has five young kids so that's pretty impressive. Even though she's younger than me, I totally look up to her.
Gina is my longest-standing Utah friend. We met when our families lived in the Wymount student family housing 9 years ago. She got me into cake decorating and we took some cake classes together at craft stores. I didn't get a picture of her kids but she has 5 also and is pregnant with her sixth. Our children love each other and so do we.
I've mentioned Kim Scott before as well, and here are some pictures with her family. We had dinner and games over there recently and here are some pictures with our evening together.
I've talked about several people and families in this post and in previous posts but we really have so, so many people we love in this area that it would be impossible for me to name them all and get pictures with everyone. I am so, so, so grateful for our time in this area. I am so grateful and blessed to have known the people I have known. I have learned A LOT by watching their examples. I really do feel like where we live is mostly about the people around us; who we can lift and help and change and who can lift, and help and change us. I know Colorado will be wonderful and filled with wonderful people just as Utah was wonderful.
