Roomie Ranch Reunion

Over 13 years ago, I was a sophomore at Baylor University looking for three new roomates to share my apartment with for my upcoming junior and senior years.  I had been praying for girls who loved the Lord first and foremost and who were fun and easy to be around.  Well...the Lord went above and beyond my request and blessed me with Ashley (Little Bits), Katie (Katie's Keepers) and Rebekah!  I love to look back and see how God's hand guided these girls into my life.  We had some major fun together in our little 8B apartment and managed to get an education as well!!  ;)  We were good little students!

This past weekend we had the girls and their families out to the ranch for a weekend of fun and fellowship!  I can't describe to you how full my heart feels after a weekend together.  The four of us would sit and watch our kids and husbands play together and just smile and remember back to our days at Baylor when we just dreamed of having kids and husbands of our own!  God is so good!!
Even though the miles between us are big, I can't imagine doing life without these girls!

Together at last!

Rebekah brought cookies with everyone's name on them...including Baby was a cute way to announce their pregnancy!

These two love birds just returned from a 10 year anniversary trip...the honeymoon continued at the ranch!  ;)

Pool time!!

Zach and Parker on top of the "lilypad".  This thing is awesome!  They had one at Big Cedar on the lake so we got one for the ranch, it was a hit!

All perched on top!

Among all the chitter chatter of the kids, we found time to catch up!


Cute Colson

Poolside beauties!

If only you could hear all of the laughing and squealing...a ton of fun was had by all!

Ben was in the water trying to knock them off!

It was so much fun to get to be around each other's kids.

Saying our goodbyes! (nice pouting lip Ash)
Girls, I can't thank you enough for coming all the way out to the ranch.  We had SO much fun and we already look forward to doing it again!!
