Now you get to meet them too.
On the left is Jolanthe of No Ordinary Moments. In the middle is Lindsey of Bytes of Memory . And that girl to the right is yours truly...in case you didn't recognize me without my cup of coffee.
If you haven't had the pleasure of a Meet-In-Real-Life (or MIRL, if you will) you might not know the butterflies that accompany the excitement.
I mean, afterall, I was only going to meet two (not-so) complete strangers from the internet.
And to add a little excitement we all had our families in tow, bringing the combined total to a party of 10.
3-to-7 adult to kid ratio.
And you know what?
It was awesome!
Once we got all our kids loaded up with burgers, hot dogs, and fries we fell into comfortable conversation.
I was so glad when The Boy took my camera and started snapping photos:
Unfortunately we didn't get one of sweet Sammy! So you'll have to hop over to Lindsey's blog to see him (he's the handsome blue-eyed boy on the banner). Speaking of blue eyes...Lindsey has stunning blue eyes....
The kids all got along swimmingly, but after awhile all seven kids were itching to move, so we moved the party to a great park right down the road.
The girls, who took to each other like ducks to water, all sat down to watch a home-video of Penny the Bunny.
I am always amazed when I meet bloggers whom I have read for awhile. Its so fun because you already know a framework of who they are, so its easy to just fall into conversation. Like old friends you haven't seen in awhile, but when your together its like no time has passed.
I was sad to go so soon. I wanted to ask them both a million more questions and chat for just a little bit more. I am hopeful we'll get to visit again!
Thanks J & L, for being willing to meet and have lunch! Let's do it again soon!
