Lachlan meets The Twins

June 29, 2016

Two of my best friends from my high school ballet days came to meet Lachlan and explore Colorado earlier this month. We went to different high schools but met in our dance studio. Erin (blonde hair) was in my ballet classes, and Kristin was in tap. It’s been years since I saw either of them which is entirely way too long. But what’s amazing is it didn’t feel like any time passed since we saw each other last. And I have to say, it felt really amazing to see them holding my kid. My childhood friends were holding my kid! They were there when Brian and I started dating 16 years ago, they were there on our college breaks, they were in our wedding, and now they are holding my kid. I still can’t believe it!

Erin and Kristin are twins. They told me the story of how their mom had no idea they were twins when she was pregnant, the doctors just thought they were one big boy until they were being born! Can you imagine the shock? What a huge surprise!

Anyway, here’s some pics from their visit

I really miss them.

Summertime and the kids are screaming

So it’s practically summer. Kids in the neighborhood are out of school. I can tell this by the screams and yells during Lachlan’s normal nap times. They are all little girls and I think they communicate 98% of the time to each other via…
