Last week Jesse flew to India and the same day my dear friend Kellie came to visit! We actually met when we were four years old at family camp (so our mothers tell us!). We became better friends in HS and even roommates in college. Kellie is one of those rare friends where you can have great laughter, deep conversations about the Lord, honesty about how we're doing personally, decorate a room, and cook (all at the same time- maybe not ALL at the same time, but close!). It was a blessing to me to have her stay with us while Jesse was gone. She was so helpful and fun to have around. I'm encouraged by her deep love for the Lord. She is a true friend that I'm so thankful God has blessed me with.
We spent one day in Old Town Alexandria just having fun.
It was the most beautiful day we've had in a while- lots of sun!!
The girls love Kellie, too!
Maddie asked to read several books to her and both wanted to cuddle right up!
The next day we walked some of the National Mall.
Savannah and Kellie became buddies!
That night we had a girls night watching Finding Nemo.
Saturday we went to the Natural History Museum with the Boadys.
The kids are too cute.
Group picture with the elephant!
After that, we stopped in for a treat from the Swiss Bakery.
Look at my rings, mom!
On our way to church!
Thanks Maddie for taking the great picture!
After church we made crepes!
Thanks for coming to visit, Kellie! You are a faithful friend.
