In a completely spontaneous, rapid-fire emailing, quick-decision making turn of events, I got to spend Tuesday with two of my favorite bloggers! See?!
While Laura and I did meet at a birthday party once (Laura may remember nothing aside from her cooler ride that evening…), Crystal and I had been trying, unsuccessfully, to set up a get together for months. But with her sweet, 3-week-old baby and her precious girlies in tow, she made the trip to Tiny Town to join us for a day of park-playing, picnicing, and visiting. So much fun!
Check this out. See one of Laura’s guys in the back there, holding up his picnic lunch? Proud of that frozen pizza, oh yes he was. 😉 And me? I think all the kids want to come back to Miss Amy’s house, because I had snacks… pre-packaged, high fructose corn syrup laden, granola bar snacks.
Not such a proud moment for me, but for all of you who were wondering, I’ll let you in on a little secret. Laura and Crystal are real mommies. I know! Real mommies with real (very well behaved) children (who sometimes eat not-so-healthy food) who talk about average, ordinary, real things. How about that?!
Laura and I had a little email contest challenge discussion about who would get to hold Silas first. She won, but only because I was tending to a minor batting injury. (Kids: never walk behind someone who is carrying a bat. They don’t know you are there. They might swing the bat and hit your nose. It will bleed. Yuck!)
Anyhow, I still got my baby fix. He is a sweetie!
It’s a Finer Thing when blogging, cyber-friends get together and become real life friends!
So… who’s next? I’d love to meet you all! Want to come to Tiny Town?! 😉
