Wonderful Weekend - Visiting with Friends
Yesterday some friends invited the kids and Jeff and I over to play. The kids were excited about going over to go swimming and make ice cream and have fun with their friends. I love the fact that these friends were all adults. The parents are in our small group with us and their oldest girl and her husband were visiting and wanted to have our kids over to play. Their younger daughter is out of college and still lives at home, but she loves children. Our kids were the only young children there and they had so much fun with everyone. It was a nice relaxing evening. Jeff went in the pool with the kids and I sat on the sidelines and watched, wishing that I had brought my swimsuit anyway, as maybe swimming would have helped me go into labor. When everyone was done swimming our kids joined some of the adults in making homemade peppermint ice cream. They helped smash the peppermints with hammers, measure ingredients, mix, and taste rock salt. We then had hot dogs for dinner and yummy peppermint ice cream for dessert while we watched the first half of the Mavericks game. After we returned home and the kids were all in bed, Jeff and I watched the Mavericks win the Finals.
