A Refreshing Saturday with Friends
I am so glad that God created friends. When you find the friends that you can laugh with, tell each other wonderful stories, encourage each other when life gets tough, and make silly jokes with, you always feel so refreshed and happy after hanging out with these types of friends. Today, my whole family experienced one of these refreshing times being with our close friends and enjoying every minute of it. We met our friends, the Williams family, bright and early at 9am for some waffles at BoxD in downtown Carlsbad. As we sat together catching up on our week, our girls hula-hooped, tossed a ball back and forth, and played games with each other on the grass turf lawn. A few hours later, we all decided to continue our day together and head down to Seaport Village. As we arrived, the sun was shining brightly. The day turned out to have the most perfect San Diego weather, which was great, because a festival was being held for all kinds of street performers. We were able to watch many different acts, tricks, and stunts - some funny on purpose, and some accidentally funny. We had a picnic lunch on the grass near the water and ended the day with ice cream and cartoon character balloons for our girls. As we were driving home, a little voice in the back seat said, "I think this was one of the best days ever." Jason and I had to totally agree with our Laylie. Wonderful friends, perfect weather and tons of fun. Cheers to an awesome day!
