Saying Good Bye Is Never Easy

If you've read our blog long enough, or know us well enough, then you know our friends, Jennifer and Carlos.  Jen was the very first friend I made in San Diego, and soon after became my roommate, and was also a bridesmaid in our wedding.  We've been great friends since before Dana and Carlos, and as we started dating the guys, we became very close as a foursome.  Jen and Carlos mean so much to Dana and I, so its no wonder that we were saddened to hear that they have decided to move to Northern Cali. Its the first step to the beginning of the next chapter in their lives, and we wish them the best, but we hate to see them go.

Being that we love to entertain, the best thing we could do as a parting gift was throw them their going away party.  So, this last Sunday, we did just that.  We had a BBQ where Carlos whipped out his chef hat and flipped the burgers, everyone brought their favorite sides, and I made a signature drink, "The JC Cooler" (JC for Jen and Carlos).  Jen and Los invited their closest friends to have a final celebration. 

To our surprise, almost all their friends came with a baby girl!  Thats right, we had 5 baby girls all hanging out together.  Why I didn't get a picture is beyond me!!  Dana even thought of it.  We were really excited for Eva to meet baby Mia, because she was born just 2 weeks after Eva and Mia's mom, Claudia, is Los's sister, who I seen alot while we were both pregnant.  We couldn't wait to get our little girls together. (Although they don't look interested in each other in this picture, believe me, they loved each other.  They were smiling and cooing and looking at each other any time they got close, it was so cute!)

This day was also special because Brooke was here (we really missed you, Steph) and so was Megan.  We use to all work together and barely ever get a chance to have all of us together at the same place at the same time.  We just had to get a girl's pic...

I had to include a few pics of Eva with her headband and purple feather clip, because it was just too cute.  Her cousins, Rowan, Kierce, and Merrick sent the clip to her for Christmas...we added it to a headband, and viola!  You have yourself the cutest baby alive ;)

And, a final picture of Jen and I getting as many hugs and "I love you"s in as we could before it was time for her to go.  Jen, I am missing you already.
