It's always hard to see everyone we want to see when visiting California. Jesse was asked to preach at Grace Community Church the Sunday we were there. It was fun seeing lots of friends at church. We only "got in" a few others outside of church.
One morning my good friend Rachel met me for a quick Starbucks outing. It's so fun to be pregnant with girls at the same time!
Another day the Drollinger family drove from Temecula area to spend the afternoon with us. Rachel and John have been friends with me since college. We even had daughters born on the same day, and in the same hospital! It was fun seeing them in person after 2 years of just chatting on the phone.
The kids had a blast in the pool together.
Andrew, Charis, Emma, Brighton, Savannah, Maddie, Abby (Grauman), and Sierra.
They managed to get some coloring time in, too!
One morning we visited with the Grauman family. Josiah and Jesse are good friends from seminary, and I just treasure Crystal's friendship. They are one Godly family! Abby and Maddie are quite sweet together!
One evening we had a group of couples over that used to be in our college Bible study. They are all either dating, married, or married with kids! It's so neat to watch God grow each one of them.
