Blogging, Photography and Picnics Oh MY!

This Saturday we hosted a Mommy Blogger picnic with the wonderful ladies that I have met through here and twitter. These ladies have been fabulous over the last year. Everyone gathered here to have a cookout and introduce our husbands to the craziness fabulousness! 

The big kids ran around the yard, played on the play set and made snow cones. (anyone else remember the snoopy snow cone maker from the good ol' days?)

The littles (cannot call them all babies since half are walking) had fun riding the ATV's and bikes, playing in the play house, swinging, coloring with chalk (for 3 seconds until they ate it).  The girls watched the big kids from behind bars the safety of the porch. It was awesome watching them interact and giggle at each other.

The adults had fun chatting, eating some yummy food and watching the kids in action! The men folk got to meet each other and see just who we have been talking about for the last year!

Stef's oldest Dylan dressed up as Batman. Some of the girls were none to happy about it. Others could have cared less! So funny to see the difference in each of their little personalities.

We chatted about how when the girls all first met was here in Nov of 2011. Most of the girls were not even sitting up yet! Now they are almost all walking, talking in tongues and interacting like small people. They grew up so fast! It will be awesome to watch the years go by and see how they continue to grow as a group.  (very sad that none of us took any pics on the first meeting)

All in all, a great day. We did miss the few ladies who could not attend due to illness and work schedules.

  2. This is so cool that you and your friends from online are able to get together like this. I think I remember last years post about you all meeting, I could be wrong though?
    It will be so fun to see the kids grow up together, what a wonderful way to establish new friendships!
