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.

  1. We had a blast yesterday having you over and spending time with you all! Friendship is such a blessing and we are so thankful that God brought your family into our lives. We just love playing with your beautiful children and it was such fun in the pool watching them splash and play. You know Suanna, maybe if you HAD worn your swimsuit and jumped in the pool several times like Jeff did, you just might have another baby by now! HaHa! (just kidding of course!) And what a perfect ending to a wonderful day with the Mavs winning the championship! WHOOHOOOO!!!! We love you guys and are here for you if you need anything.
