What a weekend!

We had such a fun weekend!
Saturday brought the arrival of 5 college boys to our house. Three of them are some boys that Mark and Makenzie met at church while they were serving missions in Tucson, but have now finished and returned home. The other two were friends of the three.
They came to Tucson to watch another friend play baseball against the U of A team. They all stayed at our house. And, it was a blast. We haven't laughed so hard in a long time. (It made us miss Mark and all the crazy things he does!)
In addition to the boys, we also had Jill and her husband here with us. She came to work out with Craig because there is a big meet coming up in New Mexico next week. (since getting married, Jill moved to Utah so she could finish up her Masters degree)
There was a lot of coming and going. A lot of food preparations. A lot of showering. A lot of clean up. A lot of late nights. And so much fun. They were all so well behaved and polite. That makes the fact that I now have no food left in the house a little less acceptable. :)
Ragan was a happy little tag-a-long....Thanks Makenzie for letting her hang out with you all!

So that is what Ragan meant on FB. They must have had a great time. How did you manage being a mom to that many over the weekend? Sounds like a big party!

I'm glad you had such fun. Mark would want you to enjoy being reminded of his humor. I'm sure you all had great memories to share.
Good for you, Hon!

Sounds very fun, Jo-Anne. I have our swap almost ready to go--hopefully will get it mailed in the next day or two. Have a great day. Julie

It sounds like a nice weekend. We've had weekends like that too, when my boys have brought friends home from school. I couldn't go to the link for Jill though.
Blessings,
