It really took me some time to come to grips with the fact that our best friends were moving to Chicago. Seriously, it was rough. Now don't get me wrong, we were VERY happy for them and this awesome opportunity but selfishly we didn't want them to leave. We have know the Lanes since before they were married. The circumstances around meeting each of them are funny, even to this day. We were probably one of the first people to visit after each of their boys were born. We have never missed a bday party. I am pretty sure we have never missed a time to even hang out with these peeps. Somehow we have just always made it work. D and I certainly have bonded even more over being boymoms. We just adore this sweet little family who mirrors our in so many ways! But cheers to Chicago because you know we aren't letting you forget us-- we will be to visit MANY times!!
But what do you do when you are sad about them moving, throw a party. Duh!
We set up the blow up and invited some people to the house to throw down.... well as much as you can with tiny little munchkins at your ankles!
And in all of that, I didn't even get a picture of me and D, Mike and D, Ryan and Mike or a combo of all of us. Pretty typical. I am pretty sure the last picture we have of the four of us is before we had children. Now it is all about the kiddos. I am really going to miss this crew. Thank goodness for technology that they will never really be that far away...... and we do love the Cubs so there is always that!
