Two weekends ago we had a blast with John Lee and his family. Sharon and John opened up their beautiful home and even though it was kind of a rainy day, we still had our BBQ and fun on the swing-set with all the kids.
We got to their house at 10 am and left around 2pm (right before a "I really need a nap badly melt down could happen") Mark was so comfortable, right at 1pm he fell asleep and slept soundly for 40 minutes. Of course he woke up just in time for watermelon...his favorite fruit!
|I love how the kids all did their own thing, but were friendly with each other too!|

I love how the two John's are so much alike too. They both had their cameras outside taking pics of the kids. They both have a son and a daughter. They both love the Lord. They both have AMAZING, godly, beautiful, well-spoken, very intelligent (okay I'm getting carried away) wives. They both are in the finance industry. And they both love talking about the Lord and martial arts movies!

All in all it was a great family day...God always provides friends in the least expected places at the least expected times. You just have to be open and willing to talk to a stranger sometimes! I'm so glad, John did! John Lee's sister Anne came over with her two sons, and she became my new best friend, I don't think we stopped talking from the time we were introduced. She was talking to me about how she used to live in East Brunswick (we are trying to buy a home there) and all the best restaurants there, how she grinds her own coffee, how she juices her own veggies to stay healthy, how she makes homemade cupcakes and is a super fanatic about how they come out, she makes her own frosting too. We talked about the Lord, our churches, our pastors, our kids, how long we've breastfed each kid...I mean we talked about everything it was so fun. I wish I took a picture of Anne and John's wife Sharon, but we talked so long while John was outside taking pics of the kids that I didn't get a chance, but just picture two really special ladies!
