Lucas' Birthday Party!

I was SOOO excited when I got an invitation to come to my friend April's son's 2nd birthday party. April is my special friend whom I knew for about 2 years in GP our junior and senior year, but then she moved away to the Big Apple and has been there ever since. It's really funny to think we've kept in touch all these years. I've been to visit her twice in NYC, which were some of my most fond memories, and she's only been down here to see me a couple of times. So 14 years later, a handful of visits and lots of phone convos, we are still pretty good friends. We always joke about how our lives mimic each other. She has a stepson who is 11 and has a son who is now 2 (today, actually!) We've been talking about seeing each other this year to get the kids together but just haven't been able to do it. Her parents live outside of Waco, so when I was invited to go to Lucas' birthday party, I just couldn't wait!
Lucas is just a beautiful little boy. And boy, is he such a boy! He loves trains, trucks, cars, all of that good stuff. You can't see it here, but there were about 6 kids eyeing that cake, we could barely get through the song!
Everything was so cute...

The kids played and played and played and fought and played.


We've said ever since we've known we were having a boy and a girl that they are to be wed (hopefully) ha ha. Anyway, this is the picture we will have at their future wedding...

And THIS is the picture that proves to me it's time to lose weight. I just don't even know what to say about this.

I just never realized I had this much weight around my midsection and I was so top heavy. We are working on that this week. :-)

I have been waiting to post this post until I got the picture April's cousing took of Avery, Lucas, me and April but that hasn't come yet. My phone was dead, of course, so I couldn't take one with my camera. When I get it, I will post it!
