Meeting Blog Friends...


(picture taken after lots of playing and talking, by a nice stranger)

This was a meeting of 3 blog friends and their families!

Laura of Six Little Arrows .... I have been reading Laura's blog for 2 years, and she lives 7 or so hours from us. Adam, Laura's husband was working (schooling) a little over an hour from our city, so we thought what a great chance to finally meet outside the blog world!

Emily of Ponder The Path ....I have been reading her blog for almost 1 year, and she only lives about 40 minutes from us. This wasn't our first meeting with Emily, Jeremy, and their sweet children. A few months ago we pulled into church and a van pulled up next to us and our girls yelled, "look who that is Emily"! So, we meet Emily, Jeremy, and the children unexpectedly, again outside the blog world!

Laura...ME


Along with 3 blog Mamas came, 3 fantastic husbands, 9 precious daughters, and 10 energetic sons! We meet at a park for a suppertime picnic and some, good old fellowship.



There was lots of talking, encouraging.....


Feasting.....


Snacking....


Relaxing....


Smiles....


Nibbling.....


Silliness......


Gazing.....


Playing.....


Ball.....


Making fast friends.....


And running until it became dark!!!!

It seemed like the few hours we had were gone within moments, yet each moment was filled with fun memories. What a gift it is to be able to meet blog friends face to face!
