Julie and i have been friends for twelve years now- which makes me feel uber old. We met our freshman year of college- which literally feels like yesterday. And became fast friends. After college she moved away from me to the snowy midwest but lucky for her we’re really good pen-pals and have managed to remain close. We were maid of honors at each other’s weddings (her speech was WAY better than mine. Mikes to blame- but that’s a long story). I adore her husband (no really, i ADORE him. he’s hilarious), and last week i FINALLY got to meet and adore her little boy hudson (he’s a sweetie. and i immediately got cuddles from him. love at first sight i tell ya). We took the kids to the aquarium (with another college friend heather in tow) and had an absolute blast.  Lex is kinda bossy at the aquarium- we go a LOT and so she thinks she runs the place. She knows exactly where all her favorite exhibits are (sea horses, jelly fish, penguins, and birds) and was way excited to be our tour guide for the morning.

Ready for random picture overload?

Hugging the penguin. 2013-10-10_0009

And hugging hudson (lex’s hugs are total fake hugs. She just puts her head on someone and BOOM hug). 2013-10-10_0010 2013-10-10_0011
