A Great Weekend

So the cat is out of the bag in more than one way. The first and most important being Celia's good news! She's expecting a healthy baby boy in August. I'm so excited for her and her family! Please join me in congratulating her in her wonderful news!

The other little bit is that I was able to visit her and her family this past Friday and Saturday. We had a blast! The only problem was that the trip was way too short. I didn't want to leave.

So, with that being said, it is safe to share these pictures with you!

Two friends happy to see one another again...

Two noticeably pregnant friends!

My husband and kids came along, so our entire families got to meet one another. Celia and I met once before in December when she drove to my neck of the woods, and we talk on the phone... we knew there would be no problems with us "hitting it off". I think we both were a tad worried about our husbands finding common ground but our worries were soon put to rest! Everyone got along great and it was truly a wonderful visit. Again, my only complaint was the visit being way too short!

The first day, our husbands were sweet enough to keep all 5 of the kids at an indoor bounce house while Celia and I snuck away for a couple of hours to hit some craft stores. When we got back we all went for pizza at Cici's. Our group was big enough that we rated seating in the party room away from the crowded dining area. Score!

After dinner, we were all exhausted, so we went our separate ways to catch some ZZZ's.

The next morning, Celia's hubby Phillip made some amazing waffles for everyone! I'm going to have to get that recipe from him. Five Star waffles all the way. Thanks Phillip for feeding us!

After breakfast we all sat around for a few hours and talked while the kids played with one another. Can I just say, Ansley really liked Celia's little boy William. I think there may be something blossoming here! It was really cute to see them interact so sweetly.

This little girl...

Was extremely proud of her sand castle! She made mommy take a picture of it!

We had a great trip. It's always so nice to be around people who "get it". I'm already looking forward to the next time we can get together!

You both look great. I am glad to see that you two were able to find a way to spend some time together. I am sure you both will remain friends forever. It is so hard to find a person who gets gets you when a loss in a part of your life. Sharing this experience with her I can only imagine has brought you some comfort.
