Yesterday, my BFF from childhood pit stopped at our house on her way from her home in upstate NY to the NJ shore for a week's vacation. She and I used to live down the street from each other growing up and have been playmates since we were four years old! We are barely three months apart in age, but were in different grades due to the fall cutoff dates for starting school. She moved when she was in fourth grade and I was in fifth grade, but we were loyal pen pals and occasionally visited each other during school breaks and summers as we got older. Now we have families of our own and see each other several times a year. Here are some photos of yesterday's pit stop visit.
A few of the photos are a bit blurry--I'm still learning how to manually control the exposure rate thing. My husband is tutoring me a lot, but if you're a photographer and have some suggestions, by all means suggest away! Thanks.
My BFF has three bright, adorable children. Big Boy is four, Little Twin Boy and Girl are two.
Little Twin Boy.
Little Twin Girl.
Learning to hula hoop like the big girls.
IN the hammock. Literally. LOL
A look of adoration.
Comparing friendship bracelets.
I knew there was a reason I just couldn't let go of this little tikes car.
This is my BFF's husband finishing off the blueberry pie I made. Notice he's eating right out of the pie plate. A huge compliment to the chef, I think. ;)
My husband is like the pied piper with children. They always gravitate to him. Of course, it helps that he can do neat things like magic tricks with rubber bands.
Here's the Big Boy trying figure out the trick for himself.
The look of an angel.
That's it for now. I've got a review to write . . .
