Every year we go on vacation with our good friends The Eisenhut Family :) We always go to Indian Wells, CA, which is near Palm Springs. The Eisenhuts have four children, and they are all best friends with our children. We used to live right nextdoor to them until the year 2002 when we both moved to different houses in different towns.
Here is Alex with Katelyn. They have ALWAYS been two peas in a pod, ever since they were toddlers. They even fight like brother and sister sometimes. But they play and play and play....until they both fall asleep from exhaustion. They have very similar personalities and for the most part that works well, but sometimes they clash. When they butt heads, it's usually Alex who gives in to Katelyn... just to keep the peace (he's learning young!!)
Here is the whole gang (minus Aislynn who refused to get in the picture!) So there are just 11 kids instead of 12. Top row from left: Avery, Michaela, Katelyn, Alex, Afton holding Andrew, Brennen, Tony holding A.J. Bottom row from the left: Audriana and Holly
Holly, Audriana and Afton are all best friends (well, Audriana and Afton fight quite a bit because they are sisters, but when the three of them get together, they are normally all best friends!!) Audriana just got her glasses for this trip and was getting used to wearing them. They look 50-ish style in my opinion, but they are the style of today (so they say) Audriana picked them out herself.
Oh my gosh...I love, love, love this picture of Avery and Michaela (who we've always called "Kay Kay" but lately she's been insisting we call her by her "real" name!) These two have always been the best of friends and we have so many cute pictures of the two of them growing up.
Although Tony is 4 years older than Brennen, these two get along great and are very close friends. When we lived nextdoor to each other, we used to have a gate inbetween our fences and the kids would always go back and forth all day long playing in each other's yards.
