I flew to Arizona this week to visit my good friend Lyndsay. Since we figured out that we had been friends for over 13 years (crazy!) I was way past due on a visit to her new home in the desert. We had a great time. Her cute kids (with a little help from mom) made me a little welcome sign to start us off. I loved seeing Ella, Charlie and Claire they are so great and it was so fun to see Lyn as a mom. She is just so wonderful with them. I hope I am as patient, gentle and calm as she is when my little one comes. We played at the park, went shopping, ate sprinkles cupcakes, talked for hours and had so much fun.
Quinn was even nice enough to grace us with his presence one night for dinner since he was down watching the cubs at spring training. (side note- I thought Quinn's first spring training being a soon to be dad would mean bringing loads of cubs gear back for our little girl but cute Quinn surprised me. He got in the car and proudly beamed " I got the cutest dress for Lila! It has hand knit flowers all over it, I got it at a street fair! " I thought that was so adorable) It was also so nice to have dinner with Cameron. I haven't seen him in years.
The last day Lyndsay, Claire and I went to Frank Lloyd Wrights house, where students still study architecture today. It was really cool, Wright seems like a bit of an odd duck but amazingly talented. I had no idea he had no formal education. Genius!
Thanks Lyn for the wonderful weekend! I LOVED seeing you and wished you were closer, but I am glad I always have a place to go escape the cold. Your home is wonderful! Thanks for letting me come.
