{happy friday}

just wanted to pop in and wish a happy belated easter to all our family and friends! it was hard to be away from home for the celebration but we had a few visitors who made it one of our best pensacola weekends yet.  jeff battipaglia {in town from his duty station in okinawa, japan} and tyler simmons {graduate of the infantry officer course in quantico, virginia -congrats!} came down for a short trip.  the weekend was absolutely gorgeous so we spent our time on the boat and at the beach.  we even shared the most delicious easter dinner at shane and jen bothel's place.  we hold on to our time with friends like these because we know how precious it is. what would we do without it?!

jason wright just missed seeing jeff and tyler when he was in pensacola two weeks ago for a short training trip.  so good to catch up with him as always, too!

vince is still studying a bunch of his day away and learning all about the nuts and bolts of flying.  i have been feeling thankful for my job, too, and that it keeps me busy and productive while v is at school.  i especially love lunch breaks downtown with sweet friends who come to join me- thank you jen, liv and michelle!

and the weekend is back again. we are looking forward to this one spent celebrating livie bothel's first birthday. tonight, we joined her and her momma and pop at the blue wahoo's game here in pensacola.  she had the most delicious froyo treat post-game ;)  tomorrow is her birthday party and we cant wait to play and visit with friends.  happy birthday sweet girl!

hope to see you all soon.  all our love!
