We recently met up with our friends Joe, Amanda, and Jake Balice (and little Baby Balice #2 who is currently in utero and will be joining the world in just under a month, if not earlier). Since we live in Orange County and they live up in Newbury Park, we don't get to see each other as often as we'd like to. But meeting halfway in LA has worked out well for us. This time, we met up at The Grove. We had a yummy dinner at The Cheesecake Factory, and Jake and Kyra had fun playing and running around. They loved riding the trolley from the Farmer's Market all the way over to the other side of the big, outdoor shopping center. There was even a live band playing, and Kyra did a little dancing on Daddy's feet. Kyra and Jake sweetly gave each other a couple big hugs. Kyra would've loved for the hugs to go on and on, and pretty much refused to let go. After much smiling and giggling, Jake finally managed to unlatch himself from her tight grip!
