If you've been reading my blog for any time, you should recognize these faces.
They are (some) of the moms of the other kids in Egan's playgroup. This pictures represents a first though... the first time we've ever had a group picture minus the little ones. This picture was also taken after a long day of work (being moms) and driving, but that is how it goes, right!
We stayed up late, had uninterrupted conversation... (a first!), made s'mores, and laughed till we couldn't any more. It was so refreshing.
Cool weather, a fire, marshmallows, friends = a great evening.
We also learned that the super mega jumbo marshmallows are just too big for s'mores. The regular 'ole "jet puffed" ones do just fine.
The next day, we took a walk... a nice long, scenic walk.
And also played some fun games!
Oh, and I'm sure there was more walking, talking, eating, laughing, storytelling, exploring, relaxing... and much much more. These moms (and their sweet babies) are truly a great gift from God, and I look forward to the years to come watching their kids grow into sweet boys and girls. When is our next mom's weekend?!?
