These guys are just such a fun & cute family. My friend Kate, the adorable mom, came armed with plenty of treats & snacks which the kids loved. Kate & Ryan both have such great senses of humor. It’s fun to watch them interact with their kids, joke with them & handle little situations with amusement and light. Once they got on the blanket & started making paper airplanes, I was far enough that I couldn’t really hear their conversation. Someone’s constitution must have been reacting to all of the treats though because I heard a parent say, “Ooh, who tooted!??” more than once. I mean, how can you not love a family that makes flatulence jokes together? You can’t not smile a little at that. And then you can’t not smile a lot when you see how cute they are together.
Kate and I have been friends for a little over a year but it doesn’t seem like a new friendship at all. She’s what I affectionately refer to, in the most positive way possible, as “easy”. “Hey Kate, want to go get froyo?” “Hey Kate, want to take a bike ride?” “Hey Kate, want to wear wigs & Goodwill bridesmaid dresses and ride around in a pink limo?” Her “Sure!” is the same for any occasion. She’s up for anything and always keeps the crowd in stitches with her humor; some physical, some impersonations and some carefully rehearsed original characters. And Ryan’s cool too.
