We are so excited for our friends Jenn and Jon who are expecting their son, Jacob James, in October. Jacob is one lucky boy because he will have the best parents. I think what makes us so happy for them is that we have been lucky to share in each other's lives and special times. When we were all in college, Jenn and I studied abroad together in Oxford, England, after graduation, we both got engaged and were married in the summer of 2009 and now we are both starting our families.
The road trip started at 4 am with us all getting up and hitting the road. Luckily, we were able to get in the car by 4:45 am and cruised into Roseville at 11:15 am. All in all, Ke'alohi did great in the car and slept most of the way. We did pull over a couple times to switch drivers and to feed and change her. We changed and headed over to Jenn and Jon's house for the shower that was hosted by Jenna (who got engaged the week before) and Jenn's Nana. We had a blast and a few times laughed so hard that our stomach hurt. The highlights of the day were Nana reading everyone a "bedtime story" and all the girls helping Jenn put all the gifts away in Jacob's room. The next morning we got up bright and early to have brunch at Jenn and Jon's house and then headed back down to Los Angeles. Our trip up north was too short and we wish that Roseville was closer to us.
It might be stepping over our parental boundaries but we have already decided that Jacob and Ke'alohi will be friends and will be going to prom together in 2028!
