Karen and I met first via our blogs and then in person last spring at one of our Waiting Mommies Dinners. It was an instant connection when we met in person and we knew that it would be fun to get together for a day. At last month's dinner we finally pulled out our calendars and found a day that would work for both of us. Yesterday morning I headed across the city and couldn't wait to see my dear friend again and meet more of her family! The oh so precious Samara had joined us at a couple of the dinners but this was the first time I'd have the privilege of meeting her hubby Mike and her older 2 children Victoria and Austin.
What a great day! We played, chatted, ate, relaxed, did puzzles, went for a walk, got wet in the rain, watched the fish at a local garden centre and laughed as I got totally lost on my way to their home and had to call a few times to finally get me there.
Mike and Karen are in the process or adopting again - this time from Ethiopia. Who knows, we may both end up travelling about the same time next year and then there will be 5 little ones to play with!! That will be so neat!!
Unfortunately Victoria was camera shy and the only pic I snapped of Austin he was hidden by a ball but here's a little snipit of the fun that we had yesterday!
It was great to meet you Mike! Sorry about the supper snafu (oven went on the blink) but you order up a mean pizza and wings! :o) Looking forward to our next get-together Karen!!
