This past Thursday, we had invited Jax and his family to come to our house for a visit. They were doing Disneyland for the week but since Ella happened to be home from the hospital right now, we weren't able to hook up with them there. So they headed out around 5pm to come and visit for dinner. The problem......we live in Southern California and that is rush hour time. With no traffic, it takes an hour to get to our house!! So you can only imagine how long it took them! Traffic was unusually heavy so we finally decided that we would go and meet them to save them some time. We chose a place that wouldn't be busy, especially since it was now about 7:30 pm, so that Ella wouldn't be exposed to a crowd of people. It was just a little burger joint but we pretty much had the place to ourselves for a couple hours.
We just love spending time with this family. They are so genuine and their boys are just to die for. Tanner is Ella's special friend. Before we got there, Lacey said that he washed his hands at least 3 times so he could hold her.....so sweet. The other kids took a few minutes to get comfortable with each other again and then had a great time playing. I am pretty sure there was a food fight involving french fries at some point. The pictures aren't great as my camera flash is acting up so I am having trouble getting indoor pictures. We can't wait until the next time we see them as they should have their new baby Makayla home from Eastern Europe by then!!
