Ryan and I met some new friends at a church cookout a couple of weeks ago – come to find out they live RIGHT DOWN THE STREET! Insane! Pretty much I think God knew I needed a friend and He sent Mary and Matt to Ohio. Ruby could not be more excited about hanging out with Elizabeth (7), Abigail (5) and James (almost 3).
We hung out over the 4th, went to a the parade in Dublin and then to the pool to hang out and cool off. It was a great parade – we met up with a bunch of people from Vista Church and all sat together in the hot blazing sun until all of us were dehydrated and drenched in sweat. It was awesome. Ruby and Clara LOVED the parade! USA! USA! USA!
Today we met Mary and the kiddos at the zoo and the kids had a blast running around and touching some animals. Ruby touched an armadillo. Hooray for friends!
