Riley and Cheyenne

My friend Melanie and I have known each other since high school. We both went on to VA Tech and were college roommates. After college we backpacked through Europe together, moved back home and were roommates again before we both got married in 2000. When Shea and I found out we were finally pregnant, I was so excited to find out shortly after, that Melanie was too! She was actually due only about a month after me. Turns out that Riley was almost 2 weeks late and was born on Jan. 4th 2005. Exactly one month to the day later, Cheyenne was born.....Feb. 4th 2005. Mel and I are still friends today and it has been so much fun to see Riley and Cheyenne (and her baby sister Jaydenne too) grow up together. One of my all time favorite pictures of our kids together was taken the day Cheyenne was baptized. We had gone back to Mel's for an after party and I took a few pictures of Riley and Cheyenne sitting together in a big blue chair. They were so cute! This is the one I just love......

Cheyenne(almost 4m) & Riley(almost 5m)
The reason behind this post is that I have always wanted to get another picture of Riley and Cheyenne together in this same big blue chair. I never seem to remember my camera though, or I just forget to do it. So, finally at Cheyenne's 4th birthday party today, I remembered!!
Here are Cheyenne and Riley at 4 years old.....
