Laying out with two of my bestest friends!

I successfully talked Justin into staying one more night in California so that I could have one last lay out day with Bandna and Katie (also only our second lay out day of the whole trip).  I LOVE THESE GIRLS!!!  They are seriously so thoughtful and encouraging and fun!  

So here we are!  Don’t mind my whiteness.  You should have seen me before the two layout sessions! YIKES!  And don’t compare me to the Indian girl to my left.  That’s just not fair.  And don’t compare me to the half Lebanese one to my right!  I can’t compare with Middle Eastern roots.  As much as I want to be brown, I will always be red.  Poop.  Oh and yes, I know we have the same sunglasses!  We got them in Huntington Beach!  Ten bucks!

Gotta love the set timer on a camera and Katie running/swimming to make the shot!!!  


Katie is soaking up the rays!  Maisie is doing what she did 99% of the time, munching on peanut butter and jelly and avoiding the pool.  Brrr.  Too cold for little baby goo goo!  In this picture you can see the delicious drinks that Katie and Bandna made (no, not the Starbucks cups) and also the mini sandwiches and fresh produce to munch on during our last lay out day!  So thoughtful, making every moment special!


Another timed shot!  But where is Julia???  


The moms with our girls!  I’m gonna miss those hang out times!!!!!!  


Maisie didn’t want to leave California either.  We miss you Katie, Bandna, and Julia!  But mostly, we miss the sun.  Just kidding, but we really do miss the sun (Portland welcomed us home with a rainfall).  Glorious.

    Glorious Portland rain…I’ve been saving it just for you! 🙂 I’m sorry that your NW friends can’t provide you with pool dates, but we will make yummy food and tell you how special you are…to all of the west coast it seems! And we won’t make you look like the pale one! Glad you’re back for a little while at least…
