Dinner With Friends

Earlier this week, a friend of Ryan's stopped to meet us for dinner on his way through town. It was a joy to see Austin and his wife, Kristin, and daughter, Aubrey. Ryan and Austin have been close friends for many, many years and were roommates in college. Austin is to Ryan like Stacie is to me. In fact, Austin was the best man in our wedding and Stacie was the matron of honor. Anyway, we had a great time visiting and enjoyed meeting their daughter, Aubrey, for the first time. We're really lucky that both Stacie and Austin have daughters close to Olivia's age. Hopefully, we'll be able to get together again soon. . .at least before Olivia and Aubrey start kindergarten.

Saying hello

This is Olivia being sweet to Aubrey.

I'm not sure what Olivia is doing here. . .maybe trying to read Aubrey's thoughts?

Austin-She's adorable...and much bigger than the last pictures I saw of her. Glad that you all got a chance to get together! I'm sure that there were many laughs. I can still remember a trip to Dodge listening to you two singing. I can't recall...was it Mariah Carey?

Thanks! It was great to meet Olivia. I remember - it was definitely Mariah Carey in One Sweet Day. I still break that one out on my iPod every now and then....
