The Upside of the Upside

I recently posted about how sad I was to have friends moving because their husbands had finished their post-graduate education at Duke.  I said that it was the downside of getting to know so many terrific student families in our ward here.

A couple of weeks ago we got to experience the upside, when a family that moved away about 4 years ago came back to visit before they spent a week at the beach.

[Just a note: this should tell you something about the awesomeness of the NC beaches—that this family came all the way from Seattle to spend a week at Emerald Isle!]

It was such fun to see them, to hang out and talk, and see how big their kids are now.

And it was also wonderful to get to meet their newest family member, Lilly.  Lilly & I had lots of fun together.

So consider this an official invitation, to all of our friends who have already moved or will be moving.  Our door is always open, we’ll always have a bed for you and if you’re lucky Russ will make you breakfast.  Just be sure to come back and see us!

(P.S.  Can you tell which family had just gotten home from a week at the beach and which family was just getting ready to go to the beach???)
