T-ville Friends Get-Together

As we try to do at least once a year, yesterday was another get-together with my high school girlfriends. This time we included husbands, kiddos, etc. We met at a park by where most of us grew up and had a blast catching up and letting the kids play together. Then we BBQ'd some hotdogs and enjoyed a fun dinner. As we get older and life gets crazier I'm glad we're still taking time to spend together. We never get as many girlfriends there as we'd like, but there's always next time :). Thanks everyone for coming and making it another fun outing. I can't wait for what we come up with next time! But in the mean time, I'll hopefully see you all at Melisa's wedding in a few weeks. Congrats Melisa!

Melisa, Tiffany, Oliver, Me, Isaac, and Shannon at the playground. (Sorry you're not in the picture Jenny! You were getting the grill :). Thanks for doing that btw!)

Isaac and Oliver. They were playground buds bonding over balls and wood chips :).

Cali and Isaac braving the balance beams. I remember playing on those
when I was little :).

Eating yummy dinner. I love Jenny's little girl Hayley's (in the pink) face in the picture. Such personality!

Enjoying our yummy dinner. Thanks everyone for bringing stuff!

Melisa, Tiffany, Oliver, Hayley, Jenny, Me, Shannon, and her new three week old baby girl. Too bad we didn't get a picture with everyone. Sorry hubby's but someone had to take the pictures! :)

And, just for fun, here's my kiddos before church this morning. They looked so cute!

Cali looking cute as ever in her fun summer dress.

Can you believe she'll start kindergarten in a couple weeks? I know, me neither...

I love it when I get good smiley pictures of Isaac. What a cutie!

This picture cracks me up. Look at that pose! Like father like son I guess... ;).

Can you believe Isaac is just two and Cali is five! Isaac is a giant and Cali is my petite little girl. Oh well, at least it's not the other way around!

Love those two little stink bugs!

That's a fun idea to get together with everyone. I'm glad you guys had fun!

Shannon said...

You got some cute pictures! Thanks for posting them so that I can steal some. The first picture is kind of funny because you guys are all huddled together, and then I'm clear over on the other side. Maybe you guys smelled or something! It was fun to see everyone. We really should do this more often.

Isaac is looking more and more like a mini JR! You guys are going to the reunion this year,right? RIGHT! I can't wait to see everyone! It has been such a long time!

I wish I could have been there! I was so excited to go until I found out I have a family Reunion that I couldn't get out of. Everyone looks like they had a good time!

Jenny said...

It was so fun to see you girls! Let's do it again soon!

Jenny said...

And P.S. The pics of yours kids are adorable!

The Millette Family said...

those are the dang cutest pictures of your kids!

JR said...

You know Chelsea, I think Isaac is starting to look more and more like a Black (think Lance and you'll see what I mean). But they really are the freakin' cutest kids ever! No bias here... ;)

Kendra said...

I can't believe how grown up your kids are looking! Especially that Isaac. Wow! When he was killing the JR pose, I thought I would die laughing. You have a beautiful family!

nicole said...

Super cute pics! Love the JR pose. It was so fun to see them the other night!

These pictures are so adorable! Just makes a grandma so dang proud she can hardly stand it! They both look so grown up! How very blessed you and JR are! Sure love you all!
