I just love that our friends have kids, and let us be involved in their lives.
Truly. It's a blessing.
We took a break from some things at the ranch last Thursday evening and headed to a birthday party for Justin & Jenny's girls.
One thing I love about Jenny is that she keeps things low maintenance and simple - she doesn't get too wrapped up on little things and always keeps the big picture - HAVING FUN - in mind when it comes to gatherings. I bet a few of us (finger pointed at myself) could take a lesson there. For instance - instead of trying to figure out a complicated main entree to serve, she picked up a big 'ole box of fried chicken and the guests went to town. I can't remember the last time I had fried chicken, but it was so good. Like finger lickin' good.
Justin's mom and her husband live in a beautiful house out at Hat Rock on the Columbia River and for the past 5 years they've opened their home and pool for a birthday party for the girls. (Cid and Cameron's birthdays are actually in the winter months, but they have a pool party every summer to celebrate.)
It was the best way we could have enjoyed a Thursday evening in Hermiston.
Thank you Estes Family!
