Thankfully, the weekend was low key, with very little activities planned, which helped saying yes to it all a bit easier. So, I didn't take one single picture with my good camera. In fact, there was very little pictures taken, at least by my standard.
Their new house is backed into a little trail that leads to a beautiful lake, so we made 5 minutes trek on foot to explore the body of water where my girl had a lot of fun playing with rocks and the adults had a good time partaking in a little competition of rock skipping. I failed miserably and wasted many a wonderful rocks that had so much potential to skip far.
After we dined on smoked BBQ goodness, we headed to a nearby lake to take a little dip to cool down from the mid 80 degree weather that felt like it was 105. Needless to say, the cool water was a very welcome distractions for kids and adults.
The next day before we made the trip back home, my friends rose early to make the 10 or so guests that occupied for carpeted floors like sardines just hours earlier with a heavenly breakfast consisting of poached eggs and mimosas. A virgin was made especially for me but tastes just as good.
We left there on a full stomach and a face sore from laughter. One of the blessings in life is to have friends who are willing to throw a good slumber party, but it's an even greater blessings to have friends to say yes to those opportunities, despite how hard it could be with a pregnant belly and a toddler in tow. But they sure make great memories.
