what a day!

what a day!it was a very social day for us! mark and i are quite surprised how social we have been since kinley has been born. when we had kya i think we were in hiding for the first 6 months. this second kid thing is so much easier...THANK YOU LORD!!
yesterday i had some girls from work over. three of us have had babies in the last month or we thought it would be fun to get together and have a baby party! it is amazing how old kinley looked compared to kate and connor..she is only a month and a half older but they grow up so much changes in that small amount of time. it was fun to sit and chat with my friends from work..i have missed their friendship during my time at home! kya had the time of her life playing with the older is fun to see her interact with them.i often sit and wonder what she is going to be like when she is in high school...oh help us lord!

when mark got home from work we went to a volunteer dinner at was fun we got to take a tour of our new church building!it is fun that we have gotten to know more people at church...we love that community! we got in the car to head home and mark surprised me! which never happens! (good job babe) we were headed out to meet some friends and my sisters for a birthday celebration! i NEVER have true surprises in my life...honestly i don't really like them...probably due to the fact i am a major control freak...i know i am working on it :) we headed to old chicago were we hung out with some of our friends and had a great time just talking and laughing!(thanks brooke K for the hair comment it was the highlight of my night )!! it was a great birthday present to just sit with my friends and laugh! then julie and her husband ryan spent the night and we had a great morning this morning just sitting around drinking coffee and catching up!

after a day filled with being with made me realize how blessed i am with the people in my life. life gets so busy,it is so easy to not make the time to get together with friends! i feel so blessed that when we do get together we have a great time and laugh and talk like we see eachother all the time! it was truly the best birthday present to just spend time with them all!
