Once upon a time I was a college student, living with random roommates in Provo, Utah. One day a girl moved in named Jenna, and became my room-roommate. Both being short, ex-cheerleader Washingtonians, it was obvious we'd be the best of buds, and we were. My parents even raved about Jenna, saying she was so fun and cute and that she needed to marry into our family! Needless to say I had no brothers her age, so we just continued our single fun crazy lives.
After both serving missions, and being back in Utah again (though sadly not roommates), I started dating my soon-to-be husband. Then a certain cousin of mine returned from his mission named Bennett.
And what's a girl to do?? Bennett and Jenna here were engaged by the time I got married. =)
Soooo, since Bennett and Jenna are living in Texas for dental school, I decided it was time for a visit! Crazy that we're married now and have kids, but it was so much fun!
Carter loved their new baby Cameron... I think he was being gentle
BFF for life... Jenna has no choice anymore, she married into the family
Cute little Avarie on the swing with Jenna. Carter and Avarie are only a few weeks apart.
Carter and me
Ohhhhhh swinging together... that means they're married!!! Ok just kidding, they're 2nd cousins so that is not allowed ;)
Hangin out in the back seat with the binkies
And obsessed with Elmo ( I believe.. either that or Einstein)
We got to go out to Bennett's parent's house.. my Aunt Shirlene's and hang out with some family!
And here's Bennett, looking like he's being mauled by the two gremlins!
The little kiddos really did have fun together. And Jenna (the hairstylist) and me (just plain silly) thought our kids would look funny with their hair like this, and they did
And I just couldn't get enough of this little guy. Sweetest little baby ever.
The End of my story. Friends who marry into the family are the best... you never lose touch =)
