Play time with the McDaniels

It's been a busy year, and we have seen a lot less of the McDaniels than I would like!

Kendra and I were so fortunate to be working on the same project at RadioShack when we were both pregnant.  If you know Kendra, you will know that she did not look pregnant at all, while I was eating every donut in sight and LOVING it.  But we still became friends because she is so nice!

She was so kind to invite me to her baby shower, and I went (8.5 months pregnant) only to realize we have several friends in common.  So Fort Worth...

Then I took Zachary to her work shower, and then baby Gwen was born.

So Gwen and Zachary have known each other since the womb!

We soon realized how closely we lived to each other.  Their first year of life, we saw each other several times a week, with playdates, music, zoo trips and Little Gym.  Gwen and Zachary fell in love, and we like to say that we already know our in-laws. :)

Sweet Hannah was born in 2007, and she was a welcome addition to our happy group, and then Sophie came along in 2008.  Poor Zachary is still the only boy with now 5 ladies, so he tries to keep us in line (haha).

Zachary and Gwen are still so in love, and Sophie adores Hannah and Ms. Kendra, and I love them all.  We are so lucky to have them as our sweet friends!

This spring seems to have gotten away from us, so we decided to do lunch today after Museum School.  It was a perfect day to eat outside at Central Market and let the kids (even Sophie) run around and burn energy.  It was great to catch up, and pick right up where we left off. 

Thank you, McDaniels, for being such a blessing of friendship to our family!
