Today was such a lovely day. I've been swimming a lot this weekend and I love it so much! I bring my silly swim cap, don my one piece, and swim a million laps with my Mom up at the country club. Nothing's better, and it's such a great workout to do while pregnant! Earlier today though, I attended my friends' daughter's first birthday party! Little Miss Camryn turned one, and her ultra creative super-Mom Emily planned and hosted an amazing ladybug themed celebration. The Barnas are a really wonderful family that I met through my best friend Shirley. Shirley's long-time boyfriend is the Emily's hubby's brother, so we've all become one big group of friends as time has gone on, it's wonderful! I featured Emily and her husband Zack during my couples feature last Valentine's Day, and you can read that post by clicking here.
The party today was so wonderful. Throughout the day I stopped numerous times and thought about how amazing it is that THIS is life now. Many of us have gone to college (and even grade and high school together), and over the past few years we've been in each other's weddings, and now we're all having babies and enjoying days like today. I know this sounds incredibly cheesy but I almost teared up so many times when I thought about how beautiful it is to be able to celebrate such a wonderful little person's first birthday! My heart was so full of love and maybe it was pregnancy emotions, but I was such a ball of happiness today.
Here are some photos from the ladybug party! Happy birthday, Camryn. :)
