Girls Weekend in chilly North Carolina!

We had a fabulous time at the cute little Lake House that Mare was able to snag! This was the only group photo taken and the fabulous Heather & Georgia were napping while it was all going down, but they were there and I can attest that Ms. G is one of the best babies I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She's so sweet and extremely smart, her Mama sure knows how to raise em' right! Our girls played like nobody's business and we pretended to not be tired at nap time when it was time to lay our girls down...getting old is a bitch. Just a few random photos that I found irresistible.
I hope we are all able to maintain the connection for our girls sake. I think it will serve as a valuable tool in their life as they grow older. It was so nice to enjoy this time watching our girls play and I especially loved the beautiful fall weather!

A super cute cake made by Robin to celebrate them all~!

The little girls loved feeding the fish & the big girls were afraid their tots were going to take a dive, thus why we are sitting on top of them.
Can you feel the love???
Gracious look at all that foliage in the background! This beach girl is not used to that & I really loved it!


My 'naughty very much' girl...=0)


It was a beautiful weekend and I'm so thankful for these gals. They really do add lots of spice in my life and though the connection used to be about adoption, it has grown into something completely different. Our lives are not about adoption anymore, but instead they are filled with enjoying the now and living in the moment. I thank each of them for who they are and look forward to the next time!

I agree. The bond started by adoption but has blossumed into so much more. I'm so grateful for the ties we have to some wonderful folks.

So nice to see other "girls" hanging out and having a ball. I enjoyed your little re-union vicariously. Thanks.

Precious photos of precious girls! Looks like you guys did have a great time. I know the girls loved being together too. Thanks for sharing.

Glad you had such a wonderful time together and that your friendships will continue to grow through the years! Isn't it wonderful how adoption may have brought you together but it's not what keeps you together...it's friendship! I share this with some gals up here too and am forever thankful for that!

Maybe you can entice them all down to enjoy the beach next time? ;o) Great times with even better friends!!

How beautiful to see so many of you with your little ones now. I look forward to the day when I can live in the present without this yearning for the future. But dreams really do come true! -Dale
