I can hardly believe September is over.
The week before school started
we went to a rustic cabin with our cousins.
You know the kind of trip where
everyday was spent in the water.
The babies tipped over so much in their life jackets
that we all just giggled and tipped them back up.
The kids fell completely in love with Paul Bunyan,
and Babe the Blue Ox.
The kids had opportunities to try new things like:
and pet the deer.
(Although I do think the deer were glad to see Rocco go.)
Dinner was made over the fire
followed by s'mores
So many magical moments that
I was instagraming all day :)
But the highlight of the trip was meeting a blogger friend!
I had never done that before!
Two days before we left I found out my friend Pat had a resort only 6 miles away and she was brave enough to invite us all over!
From the minute we got out of the car we felt like old friends.
She talked with the kids as if she had known them for years.
She & her hubby Steve were so sweet that
the kids didn't want to leave.
(and her milkshakes were pretty amazing too!)
It was so fun to meet her daughter Jen too!
(although they discovered my secret that I am very good with camera angles and much larger in real life :)
Soooo...here I am with Pat in all my
"pregnant glory" (we will just call it that :)
We had so much fun we visited her
the next day too!
I realized that our "blog friends"
should just be called friends.
And even though we had a flat tire both on the way there AND on the way home...
...it was one of those trips where you just knew that everyday we were making childhood memories that would last a lifetime.
Summer is magical.
P.S. If I were you I would pop over & visit Pat.
It will be the beginning of a beautiful, uplifting, friendship...I
... promise :)
