Treasure it Tuesday!

I thought I would continue to do the Treasure it Tuesday blog this week! I had a few things about the girls I had already decided to do for this week but that will have to wait! Today we found out that our good friends that were visiting for work are leaving this week. So I thought I would talk about how much we treasured the time we got to spend with them!

The Huttons have come into our lives because of our twin girls! Our stories about the girls are VERY similar. Our pregnancies are just about the same, even to the day we had them. Both in our 33rd week and after no real problems we both developed horrible Preeclampsia bad enough (VERY BAD) to deliver the babies. And our girls are only 5 days apart! I only wish I would have found her blog when I was pregnant. Last May we were a hour or so away from where they live so we popped by to meet them! I was sooo glad we did! It felt like a instant connection!

We didn’t have our girls during this trip so we just got to meet the Hutton Girls!

We decided real quick that we HAD to get our girls together! I think we waited like a week!

After that we were lucky enough to see them a few times off and on…and always enjoyed our time together!

Trip to the zoo!


The girls and I were so excited that we had our good friends here and that we could play almost everyday!

Mother’s day weekend!


After that visit we had our Twin mama trip and Kristi and I got some time away without the girls!

I think it is so neat to watch them play. They remember each other and the four of them play very well together. It is almost like they have a bond already!

Bff’s in training!


We always have a good time with the Huttons and are extremely happy for the time spent together this year!. I know that we are going to be HUNDREDS of miles away for a while but look forward to playing again. I told M and K tonight that Alex and Avery were going bye bye (after Kinley asked if we could see AlexAvery) she started to whine and cry because we couldn’t see them. WE LOVE YOU GUYS and wanted you to know how much we treasured all the time we spent with you!! We might have to let the girls Skype every once in a while!

Oh my gosh, they were so little in those first pics! Seems like that was yesterday, but then I feel like we've known each other forever! This is the sweetest post, Liz! We were so lucky to have y'all to hang out with while we were up here working! We will certainly miss you! But like you said, we'll catch up this fall! I see many joint vacations in our future! The girls are obviously best buds already ;)
