South Africa Or Bust For Papa & Mimi

 Well, Mom & Dad started their journey back to South Africa today! We are so proud of them and their example of faith, love, and service. We've joked that their first mission was for Nick to find Savi & that this mission is b/c I found Frank. We know they will do a lot of good & can't wait to hear about the adventures they have.

 After dinner, I dropped Autumn off at Stacey's house to play. She loves getting to have play dates.

 There was a big storm coming in tonight, so I went & picked up Mary & Karri and we headed over to Christine's. It was so awesome to watch the lightning storm through all the upstairs windows Christine has. We didn't get hail, but the cities north and south of us got pounded!!!

 Christine went all out and got us Cheesecake Factory goodies to snack on. We were celebrating Mary & Karri's belated & early birthdays. Since we're all trying to eat good, we each just had a taste of each one (red velvet, salted caramel, mango/kiwi, chocolate cake, and warm apple crisp). They were DIVINE & so worth every calorie.

We haven't gotten together in ages, so we had A LOT to catch up on. I LOVE these women so much and can't express how much their friendships mean to me. We're more like sisters than just friends. We laughed, cried, and shared together. I had to call it a night at 10:45 so I could go pick Autumn up before it got way too late.
