It was a quick but wonderful few days when we seized the opportunity to host the Ryans while they were enroute to Maryland. What fun we had! The weather was perfect and we played hard in the sunshine, both in the backyard and at CMU's Carnival. Once again, I was amazed how you can add two adults and four (out of the womb) kids to an already full house...and somehow the days get easier. It was so sweet to see the kids pick up right where they left off and for the adults to know that there was grown-up food, drinks, and conversation after kids' bedtimes. We've missed this family so but only have a few more weeks until we connect again!
