Ever wish you could squish the USA so that you could get geographically closer to your friends and family in far away states? Well, I long for that quite frequently, and I was definitely wishing we could move Connecticut and Wisconsin a little closer after spending a lovely weekend with our friend Phebe and her adorable kids.
See? Phebe’s daughter Kyana was like a long-lost triplet sister to my girls!
And little Liam was such a doll to have around:
Speaking of dolls, we had our very own doll baby on the boat this weekend. Meet beautiful Matea, who I think is our youngest boater yet at 5 weeks old:
I’m so glad Katelyn was such a sport about bringing her newborn daughter out so we could all ooh and ahh over her!
And of course we were excited that we got to cuddle sweet Breton too!
We were also blessed by our friend David joining us on the boat for the first time in a long time. The kids love him, so the poor guy got stuck with more than his fair share of babysitting:
But he was so good, he could do it in his sleep:
Here’s Phebe showing us all up on the wakeboard (with a sprained foot, no less!):
And here she is cuddling with my little guy:
Jimmy was thrilled to have so many friends around!
And me? I couldn’t have been happier to be surrounded by so many great friends (and cute kids!). Now only if we could get them closer!
