Our visit also fell immediately before my most melancholy week of the year... the week that holds both Noah's birthday (Aug 17) and the anniversary of us saying goodbye to him (Aug 16).
Which was also perfect timing... because spending time with our friends in the Lou was food for my heart and soul when I needed it most.
We spent a great afternoon and evening with Josh's brother Nate... who hadn't seen Eli since last June. Eli LOVED hanging with Uncle Nate and was quite enamored with his dog, Maddie, too.
Eli especially enjoyed introducing Nate to his favorite game of chest bumping.
