Christopher and Drew are such good friends. Sometimes Meghan and I even think they act a little more like brothers - wrestling and picking at each other one minute, only to be laughing and having fun the next. It has really been fun to watch them develop this friendship over the past couple of years, and now see that it is truly genuine, not just something we force because we live close by and Meghan and I enjoy the mommy company. These boys truly like each other. We hadn't even been back in Frisco from our little family vacation for 24 hours before Christopher was asking to go to Drew's house. When we arrived there this afternoon, I heard Drew tell Christopher, "I missed you." Seriously, how cute is that?

Anyway, the Dubes are heading up to the East Coast for the rest of the summer and we sure will miss them. We were really bummed when we realized that Drew would not be here for Christopher's birthday party this year. So Meghan and I decided to get the boys together for a little early celebration. We had planned to go to the pool and then for ice cream, but rain was a spoiler. We ended up at the Wiggly Play Center for some playtime, and then hot dogs and ice cream from Double Dips. Meghan and Drew were so sweet and even got Christopher a birthday present - which Meghan told me was entirely Drew's idea, even down to when they went shopping (1:00 in the afternoon, which is usually nap time)!
We are so thankful to have them in our lives and will always think of Drew as Christopher's first "real" friend!

And just for fun - a couple more pictures of these silly boys!
