A Weekend with the Rays

The Rays came to visit last weekend and we had a fantastic time! Although with nine people under one roof, and 5 of them 3 and under, our time together wasn't exactly peaceful or quiet...but we wouldn't have it any other way! For those of you wondering logistically how we all slept, Mark and Parker were in the playroom, Jennie and Maryn were in Ford's room, Emma was in Luke's room, Ford was in our closet, and Luke was in the laundry room!

The scene in the living room...bodies and babies everywhere!

My absolutely adorable nephew and nieces!

These two got their first taste of something besides milk...yum!

And the babies, one week apart, side by side. Emma is a lot longer than she looks in the picture:)
We can't wait to see you in 2 weeks for Thanksgiving! It's going to be CRAZY, but there's nothing I'm more thankful for than the people in these pictures. Deep friendships, healthy babies, and incredible memories made every time we're together.

the birthday party

a HUGE thanks to everyone who made ford's birthday so special! we had a fantastic time at his "things that go" party. my parents were kind enough to let us have it in their backyard. the weather was perfect, and other than ford deciding since he was now '2' he didn't need a nap, it went off without a hitch! it was really incredible to see ford surrounded by these precious children that he'll grow up with...lifelong friendships in the making! we are so blessed to live in a place with so many amazing families with young children! as you can tell from the pictures, the yard was taken over by cars, trucks, trains and children!
