Memorial Day Comparison Pics


We ventured about 6 hours north this weekend for our annual Memorial Day get-together with some dear friends we have known for years and years. Brought together by the same faith, we all quickly became friends while still young teens...long before any of us married. We would gather at various church meetings during those years, traveling to and fro and making sure that we would see each other at those same meetings. Our friendships grew in love through the years as we saw one another through fun times and heartache, marriage and children, moves and job changes. It is a life-long friendship glued together in God's love...one that I pray our own children will experience on their own with those of like faith as they grow older.

So while I have many memories of our annual gathering stored away in pictures and experiences that I will showcase soon, I wanted to start with some comparison pictures to show the growth our kids have experienced over the course of the past year. I always love looking at pictures like this. For reference, their oldest son is 6 months older than Emma and the youngest is 9 months younger than Nate.
More to come later...

Love the comparison pics! We really dont see the change on a daily basis but our kiddos can grow and change so much in 12 months. Looks like you all had a great day together!
