A Weekend Away

Last weekend, we were blessed with a few days without kids to be adults! Okay, well, we didn't necessarily always ACT like adults, but the point is, our kids weren't there to see us! Thanks to Jim's parents (and all the other grandparents!!), we headed to the beach to enjoy a weekend that included no dirty diapers, naptime woes or early wake-up calls. So much fun! Though we talked about the kids a lot, and most of us didn't actually sleep in, it was so nice to be able to enjoy one another's company without interruption all weekend long.

We did a lot of sitting and magazine catch-up


Had staring contests...

Took pictures!
My best friends!


Who says girls don't have more fun?

Laughed...


a LOT.


Aren't they so adorable in their glee?


Listened and enjoyed.
(Seriously, that's a big one!)


Played games


Told stories


Enjoyed Steph's stories. Hee.


Sarah rescued a birthday present that fell behind built-in cabinets!


Ate, drank and relaxed



Still talking...
(I love the look on Sarah's face here. Do you think she is thinking, "She's so funny" or "I wish I could have a chance to say something.")
***please notice gigantic belly!



All in all, it was a fantastic weekend away with our best friends. To echo what Jen said, we have been so blessed with this group of people. Words can't even come close to describe the relationships we share, except for to say they are a gift from our precious Lord! I love you all!!

There are a few more pics to share, but either I'm going to have to convince Jim to get to work on his semi-annual blog or I'll do it later. :)
