Do you ever wonder what it would be like to go through life without friends?  I honestly cannot imagine what that would be like because we are constantly surrounded by people that love us and that we enjoy hanging out with.  Although there are several people that I wish I could see more often, I love how we can pick up right where we left off.  To me, that is a true friend.  I like being myself.  

I am having trouble with my pictures so things are a bit out of order.  For those of you who know me, I sometimes jump from one thing back to another so I might as well in my blog too!  On Friday, Chris and I went to a birthday party for one of our dear friends, Syd.  It was his 30th birthday and we had a great time!  His girlfriend, Katie, threw a great party!  It was fun meeting different sets of their friends to celebrate Syd's birthday.  Chris and I thought it would be fun to take a slip and slide.  We didn't realize it at the time, but it was a little short.  No wonder it was only $4.  It was fun to watch Chris, Syd and Kevin (Katie's brother) enjoy themselves in the rain.  

This is my dear friend, Katie.  I am so glad that I have had the chance to get to know her over the past year.  She has been so supportive of our adoption.  I love how God places friends in your lives for a reason.  

Skipping ahead to Sunday, Chris and I decided we wanted to make something.  So, a corn hole set was the result!  It is actually up to the Official Corn Hole Set standards!  Now the big decisions...what do we paint it?  We are thinking we are going to go for a sport theme...Colts, Notre Dame, many choices.  I think that we decided to paint it for the Colts and possible make the bags out of ND material and Cubs material...It was a fun project and nice to start something and finish it in the same day.  

Chris is playing softball this summer.  His games are usually on Monday or Tuesday evenings.  I had the chance to see him play this past week.  It was a double header.  His team won the first game and lost the second game.  He plays on the church league with Greg and Syd down in Indy.  

Back to the birthday party...we took our washer game and we had fun playing it with Liz and Don.  Chris works with Don at Wiley.  This was the first time that I met Don's wife Liz.  It is always nice to meet someone that you hear a lot about.  They have two girls and they are adorable!  We really enjoyed getting to know them better.

So, Katie's father owns a rental place in Indianapolis and for the party, there was a moonwalk!  Although few adults actually ended up jumping in it, I was waiting for my opportunity.  I honestly don't have any idea how kids jump in this thing for so long.  It seriously wore me out.  It was fun though!

It was great seeing Mike, Syd, Greg and Chris together at something other than a wedding!  These guys hung out all the time in high school and can always pick up right where they left off. 

It is a short week at work.  This week is actually the first week of "shutdown" at Delphi.  This is great!  Things will slow down and I will be able to catch up so that is really exciting for me!  Like I said before, please continue to pray for our adoption.  We are so grateful we have so many friends that pray for us everyday.  May God bless you this week!

Aghghg, I know that guy! I worked with Mike Summers at BKD. We actually played in a Manchester golf outing together along with Craig Speece (sp?) and Denise Gates. Mike was an honorary MC grad that day but we had fun. Yay for random blog-sightings!

Hope you're doing well! :)

Sarah! This post almost made me cry :) I'm so glad that I've gotten to know you and Chris so well too. You two mean a lot to Syd and I. (and the party definitely wouldn't have been the same without you OR the slip and slide!) Can't wait to see you again and hear more about the adoption. Hope you had a great 4th of July!
