A great week with friends

My friend Jen and her kids were here this week, visiting from the East Coast.

We had the best time. (I just took them to the airport today and I’m still feeling sad; it was hard to say goodbye.)

We hadn’t seen each other in three years so we packed as much in as we could while she was here.

The day after she got here, we had some of our friends from college over. All of our kids are actually old enough now so they could play while we enjoyed lunch by the pool…

(Kel, Jen, Christie, Jen, me, Beth)

It was great to relax and catch up. It was almost like no time had passed, except for the fact that there were a bunch of kids running around (15 of them)! lol

The next day, we went to the lake with more of our friends from college (and all our kids) and had a great time talking, enjoying the weather, and swimming.

Saturday, we had a girls night out…

and spent the night reminiscing and laughing so hard our stomachs hurt! 

Then on Sunday after church, we went over to my mother-in-law’s house for a delicious brunch.

She had friends visiting too (from France) and it was really nice to meet them.

It was a week filled with great times, great memories, and great friends!

Thanks for coming out, Jen. We miss you already! :)

What about you? Have you seen friends from high school or college lately?

  1. Your pictures are wonderful and really capture the time together. The time goes so quickly, doesn't it? I think it's great that you had the time by the pool with all the kids played…and the girls night out. How fun!

  2. What a great visit Genny. You packed so many fun things into the week. I love that you got to visit with your college friends. I feel like mine are so spread out all across the nation.

  3. It sounds like you had a wonderful time. You have done such a great job of staying in touch with friends.

  4. Wow your tables look fantastic and your friends look great as well. ;) It's always nice to catch up and spend time with great friends. Happy you got to do that. :)

  5. Thanks! It was really fun. And Kathleen, it's amazing to actually have time to decorate a table (and then sit down at it and eat lunch without interruptions) now that the kids are a little older! :)

  6. What a lovely time you must have had…also, can a group of women get any lovelier all together? I am so happy you had this time together!

  7. Looks like you all really had a great time, everything looks great!Following you from MBChope you come by and visit me soon :)https://thelifeofatiredmommy.blogspot.com

  8. Isn't it just wonderful to stay in touch with 'old' friends like that? I recently saw a friend I've had since we were 4 yrs. old when I went back to my home town for a visit. We visit, WITH OUR BABIES TOO. It was so spectacular… :D

  9. What a wonderful time you must have had. The pictures are proof. Lots of smiling faces! Glad you enjoyed your time together and hope it's not another three years before you are able to do it again.Peace and blessings to your day!Jeanine
