We spent this afternoon swimming with Jaci and her kids, Alaina (9) and Alexandra (13), who happen to be the same ages as my kids! Alaina and Kaelin do acrobatics (she's a fellow "spider")and used to do Rhythmic Gymnastics together. Jaci has been such a great friend to us and did all of the driving to and from practices when I got diagnosed with cancer and was down from surgery and chemo etc. She saved us so many times! Anyways, Kaelin and Alaina became great friends and developed a neat bond. This photo is from our trip to Boston for Nationals last year. They are so cute together because they look so much alike! They are basically the same height and build and have the same coloring! The only difference is that Alaina is a girly girl and Kaelin is very much NOT! But they complement each other nicely. We have been trying to get them to do a duo together for dance, but Kaelin doesn't want to do more than one routine because she doesn't want to have to change clothes during a show! lol I'll leave you with a couple other photos from that trip from May 2007...

It's nice to spend the afternoon with good friends making more memories! I should have brought my camera today to the pool! I hope you all get to spend some great time with family and friends this weekend!
