Looks like it was wonderful weather and everyone was having a great time.


It was SO much fun, Joanne! Thanks for hosting us. You really have the perfect backyard, as well as the gift of hospitality.

All of my kids had a wonderful time too. Abbey and Sarah loved playing with your girls, and Will was so thankful Noah was there for him to play with!

It was a good day!
