Claire and Patrick

Last week, we were lucky enough to have some visitors for a few days.  Some of you may remember our friends, the Roy's, that we met in Florida.  They have a little boy who is 3 months older than Claire...

 Claire (2 months) and Patrick (5 months)-December 2010 

Look how sweet they were!  I was so excited when Michelle called and said they were going to be able to come for a few days.  We haven't seen them in person since that night we took that picture!  They moved to Alaska, and since that isn't exactly the easiest state to get to, we haven't been able to visit them.  We skype every once in a while, so I have seen Patrick, but I couldn't believe what a crazy kid that sweet baby has turned into!  I'm sure Michelle would say the same about Claire. :)

Here they are now!

Claire (20 months) and Patrick (23 months)-June 2012

We had a great couple days (minus Patrick's fever and Claire's cold) catching up and enjoying each other's company and kids again.  One of the hardest parts of this life is saying good bye to good friends, so it is always so great when you can see them again, even if it is just for a couple days.

We had turned on Mickey Mouse for Claire while we were making dinner, and I came out to check on her and saw this:

Why sit in her chair when she can sit in Daddy's chair?

Fun with Daddy!

Claire and her daddy have been having a lot of fun getting to know each other again.  Now that he is back at work, she asks for him ALL. DAY. LONG.  Seriously.  He is the first thing she asks about when I get her out of her crib, and I would bet we don't go 30 minutes with out her asking again.  I think she is happy to have him back. :)

Another lady in our life is also VERY happy to have him home.
