Roommates Reunited

Last week Isaac and I flew to Portland to visit my best friend Mikael. Mikael and I were roommates until four and a half years ago when we both finally decided to get out of Provo! It was a sad parting but we have done so good at staying in touch and have made an effort to see each other at least once a year. This time it was my turn to go visit her and see the new twins!

We knew that with four kids all 2 and under we wouldn't be able to go out too much, but it was still really fun to just visit and be moms together. Our friend Ethan came over to visit one day, we went for a walk, made cookies, stayed up late talking every night, and even made an outing to Ikea with all four kids piled in the van (thanks Ethan & Natalie!).

Also, on my last night there Derek came home from work early and we set out on our big adventure. We took the kids to Safari Sams so Makenzie and Isaac could play on all the slides, tunnels, the balls, etc. They loved it!

Afterwards we went to dinner at Sweet Tomatos. This is another tradition for Mikael & I whenever we get together. When we were in Provo we used to drive 30 minutes away to go eat there and we loved it, so it is always fun to go back and eat there together.

Here is Isaac enjoying a few bites of my ice cream.

It was really fun to be able to sit and talk like the good old days... except now we have four kids to interrupt us! We still had a good time though and I am looking forward to our next get together.

It looks like you two had a great time and busy with all four kids. You two are such great moms and you both were great roommates! I am glad that I got to know you both!

Holy Crap - I wish I could have seen you two together again just so I could have laughed. It doesn't matter what you two were doing together - whatever it was it would make me die laughing. Glad you guys had a good time!

How fun that you could get together! It looks like it was lots of fun and probably very different from what you're used to...I think Mikael is nursing in every picture! :) I think you both look great!
