Such a treat

On the Saturday before the 4th (which happened to be July 2nd), we had a very special treat... in the form of a visit from some dear friends of ours. Matt and Jason were missionary companions in the great state of Louisiana several years back, and they have been friends ever since. (By the way, I have no idea if Louisiana is really so great, but Jason insists that it is, so we'll just trust him on this one...) The Caress' came into town for a family baptism, so we had the fortunate opportunity of getting together for a few hours!
This first picture was actually taken the next day when my good friend Jolee spent an entire awesome afternoon at our house, but it was just so cute I had to throw it in...
So back to the Caress family... Matt and Meagan have a son named Sterling, just 3 months older than Weston. They had a great time playing together, busting ghosts and who knows what else!

They also have a daughter named Gwen, about 8 months older than Sophie. Here are Matt and Jason with their little girls...
If you haven't noticed, there is a pattern here... the Caress' have a baby of a certain gender, then a few months later we do too. So when we discovered that Meagan is 5 months pregnant with a boy, I got a little nervous. Is this a sign of something soon to come!?
Truly, though, it was a great visit and I'm grateful we were able to do it... a small miracle considering that it was in the heat (both literally and figuratively) of fireworks season!!
