Hanging out with Special Friends

Recently Hannah and I had the opportunity to spend a wonderful weekend with special friends.

Miss D was in town with her Mommy and Daddy which was a great treat as we hadn’t seen them since last fall.  The girls didn’t really remember one another but as kids are, they were quickly playing together and at supper shared crayons and colouring sheets.IMG_1222

After supper we picked up some groceries and the girls enjoyed playing with some bright, colourful balloons in the fruit and veggies area of the store.IMG_1225

The picture below brings tears to my eyes.  For years and years D and I would talk of our daughters to come.  Little did I know at the time but she was my Secret Pal for a couple of years during our wait.  Now our beautiful daughters are here, playing together, talking to one another and beginning to share a friendship much like their mothers do!  IMG_1229

The party grew in size when we added our friend Ben into the mix!  Sharing a bedtime snack of blueberries together.


The following day was party day and as has been the trend this summer it was hot, humid and sunny once again.  There’s nothing like hanging out in the pool in your pj’s when you’re 2!

Soon the rest of our friends arrived and it was toddler giggles, laughter, squeals and shouts everywhere!  IMG_1268


I can climb in my frilly suit but truly Mom I’d like you to put that camera down!IMG_1267

Hats and sunscreen were the mandatory accessories of the day.
