We went down to Kansas City this past weekend to see some friends and to spend some time at an indoor water park. We have a few friends and family members who live there, so we try to see everyone each time we go, which isn’t always possible. One of our sets of friends down there is Steph and her family from Blawnde’s Blawg. Steph and I have been “bloggy friends” for a year and a half now, and we’ve seen each other 4 times if you count their stay with us on their way to ChiBLOGo (I certainly count it because Steph and I stayed up late, talking and wondering (and sometimes crying) if we could love our soon-to-be-babies as much as our current babies – HA!). I can’t imagine going to KC and NOT seeing Steph and her family – they are so much more to us than “bloggy friends!” I was so excited when they were able to meet us for a LONG dinner on Friday night and then again the next day at the apple orchard.
B and I both had our phones, and Steph had her fancy camera, but none of us got photos of all of us together. What a bummer! There was one shot I wanted to get of Matthew and Chloe together, but both of them were D-O-N-E with all of us by the time we got the cameras out! I mean, come on – there were DOGS and FIRES and WISHING WELLS and BARNS to play with and explore 😉
However, I did get my new favorite photo of my boys together (see my banner above) and Steph got a family photo of the 4 of us. Aside from my “boo boo” black eyes and cut, I absolutely love this photo. Thank you, Steph, for taking it!
(I did apply a filter to make it look a little more fall-like, and to mute my super bright teal shirt and my scuffed up face!)
