One Big Sleepover


Last week, my {old} playgroup came "down" for a trip and visit to our home.

We played...we ate ice cream...we swam...we rode roller coasters...we laughed...we teased!!! I hated to say {goodbye} and so did my kids.

This is the first time I realized or I came to the {realization} that I am not part of them like I was. They share {daily} life together...I think my kids and I both felt it.

It was a bit hard b/c if we could blow up 500 balloons and tie them on the roof and float it 4 hours away just like in the movie "UP" we would!

Here are a few picture from me- {My one girlfriend took 1,000 pictures of the trip...Yes, 1,000}!

Can I come over and swim in your pool? Pretty please??????

I very much wish we had a pool!
LOL! (not used to the 90F days with 100F heat index...blech).

Looks like you had a ball with your old play group. :)

Have a happy Thursday!

That looks like you all had soooo much fun-our best friends moved 10 hours away...and I know what you mean, it is not the same as the everyday thing...that is hard to get over...so hugs to you.
(AND-can't wait!!!!!)

Looks like a fun day. It's hard when you move. My kids still ask if we can move back to NC.

I'm trying really hard not to covet your pool - really hard.

Even though it wasn't quite the same as when you lived there, I 'm sure everyone had a great time catching up with each other and just seeing each other again.♥

Fun!!!! I love getting away with old friends and their kids when I go back to Tennessee. You're right, it does seem different, especially when they are in high school.
