For my calling at church, I’m in charge of a very informal playgroup for the neighborhood. We occasionally do bigger planned activities, but most of the time, I’ll just post about meeting up at the park or splash pad. Here are pics from some of our meet ups!


BFF Reunion

My good friend Ashley who lived in Jersey at the same time as us was in Utah for her sister’s graduation, so we got to spend some time with them at the end of April! If you remember, the last time they came, they all got really sick and it was incredibly disappointing for all of us; so this trip really made up for it! Eva and Brooks were best friends immediately again and played so well together. Brooks would copy everything Eva did and she loved it. We went to the mall one evening, and those two were running ahead while we pushed our little boys in the strollers. It was major deja vu since in Jersey/NYC, we’d push our kids in the stroller together every day… but now we have two more sweet kids in the mix! Thanks for coming, friend! Come back soon (and stay forever pleeeeeez!)




JFF=Jersey Friends Forever! My good friend Ashley who lived in Jersey while we were there came to visit for a couple days. Unfortunately, it came to a terrible ending when they all got a terrrrrrible stomach flu and had to leave earlier than planned. We were both in tears because it was such an awful scenario and so sad to leave like that! But we still enjoyed having them come, stomach flu and everything! Come back soon!!!

More Friend Reunions!

My good friend Ashley from Jersey came to town for her sister’s wedding and it was absolutely the best Monday I’ve ever had getting to hang out with her again. But actually it sucked because it was so fun to bake cookies all morning (we made them for the reception) and it feeling just like normal life back in the city, but then she left again making me so incredibly sad! Just move to Utah already, Ashley!!! I did get to visit with her again on Temple Square and watch her boys while they were in temple-I loved getting to spend time with them!! While I was in the waiting room, all of a sudden I heard my name… it was my old Young Women’s president who was in town from Idaho for her sister’s wedding! It was an amazing happenstance! I loved getting to see her and her sweet boys!

Old Friend Meetups

If you know me, you know I love a good reunion and pretty much any excuse to get together with friends! I hadn’t seen some of my old friends from college since moving back to Utah so we met up for breakfast one morning! And then another afternoon I met up at the Museum of Curiousity with a good friend from Jersey who moved out to Utah around the same time as us. I’m so grateful for lifelong friends!
