Sunday Morning Pancakes

Keith was able to be home for 4 days in a row this weekend, which gave us the perfect opportunity to start calling up, emailing and sending notes on Facebook to all of our friends in the area (some live here and some visiting) to invite them to breakfast at our house today. We had a blast! The kids all behaved so well. And they ate like champs!

Megan and Pam and Sam. I'm slightly jealous that Sam has seen my brand new niece already.
After breakfast, the photo albums and yearbooks started to come out. Most of Keith's friends graduated from Forest Lake the same year he did. We even had some awkward middle school pictures of Ruben. He is such a good sport!

Joshua Flores enjoyed playing with all the kids. He and Megan were so cute together eating muffins and fruit side by side on the bench. She enjoyed practicing her Spanish with him.

Keith and Greg and Shelly. Greg and Shelly live in Tennessee now. It was so good to see them. And fantastic to finally meet Shelly. She was so wonderfully patient while she listened to Joshua read her a story.
We really had a wonderful time this morning.

After everyone went on their way, the kids snuggled in their new sleeping bags on the floor in the master bedroom to watch some old home videos of when Megan was a newborn.
