One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

"Best Friends"

My college friend Kara came into town today -- we hit the nearby outlet mall for the afternoon, and then picked up the kiddos to spend some quality time with them. Evelyn found a new best friend!! We brought out a new Play-Doh set that she got for her birthday -- and she couldn't be happier!! I couldn't be happier, too!! With Travis's job travel, and my work/home stress, this visit is just what I needed :)
Our agenda for the next couple of days involve more shopping, sightseeing, girl-time, and we will finish it off with Kara's FIRST 5K on Sunday morning. I am praying that it won't rain!! I don't want it to be her first -- and last run. It will be much more enjoyable for her if she can stay warm and dry :)

So fun to have a friend in town!
Good luck in the 5K, too.

By the way, keep me posted on Travis's schedule. I'd love to meet up with you if you are looking for something to do.

I am having an awesome time, Michelle. The kids are just wonderful and you are so amazing to do it all while Trav is traveling. Next trip...should be a family fun vacation for all of us....or a nice getaway for the women :)
