College Friends and Beyond

Sometimes friends can come and go from our lives...but special ones stay close forever.  We had a wonderful time at the cabin this past weekend with a friend of mine that I met during our college days.  College know what that means!- Yep....we had some fun, fun times!!!  
This weekend we had some fun, fun times....but a little different kind of fun.  Our fun now revolves around wonderful husbands, and 4 beautiful little children:)  
Nothing is more enjoyable than spending time with our families, at a lake, with wonderful friends.   
And that's just what we did!

Amy I shared parenting advice, photography advice, recipes, laughs, and smiles:)
Here we are a couple of years back at the cabin.  Crazy how little Eli and Orelia are!  Adi was in my tummy....and Milo wasn't here yet!  
Unfortunately, we only spend one weekend a year with our special friends.  - And last year I had 2 sick babies, so we had to cancel our fun:(  We are talking that we may need to make the trek down to New Prague just to hang out with them....Once a year is not enough!
The Daddies spent lots of time fishing.  
Eliott and Orelia enjoying a little yummy lunch.
She's such a sweet little girl...
and full of energy and smiles!
He was such a happy boy with new friends to play with!  I told him that he had new friends that were coming to play with him at the cabin...his response "More new friends?!  I can't believe it!!!!"
Daddy enjoying yummy lunch!
My kids never wear shoes...this is a common sight for me.  I'm always searching for them!
Eliott is turning into quite a fisherman...he spent lots of time on the dock fishing, and checking the minnows.

Adi loves to play in the water.
Here she was making a 'sand castle'.
Amy, Nick, Orelia, and Eli went for a little paddle boat ride.
Eli was so proud of this fish he caught all by himself!!  He was out fishing on the dock, and started hollering that he caught one!  We all went running out to see, and he had a nice sunny!
Then Daddy caught one of his own.
A nice bass!
And Nick took a turn with a northern!
The Daddies also spent lots of time pushing little people on the swings!
Then we had to say good-bye to our friends.  It was a nice day, so we decided to stay at the lake and play in the water a bit.
Eli and Adi were having fun in the boat!
Looking a little sleepy watching Mommy and Daddy tubing.
Just like old times...we went for some wild tube rides!
Bouncing over waves!
And then I couldn't hang on any longer!!!  The look on Chad's face is PRICELESS!!!!  Thanks a lot, Hunny!
The Slaviks left us a nice little 'Thank You' gift that I LOVE!!  Thank you so much for being such sweet friends...we had a wonderful time with you, and are looking forward to the next time we can get together.  Eli and Adi have been talking about your kids all week.  They had a great time too.

Dear friends that connect in that special way are hard to come by....we are glad we have you:)

P.S. And Nick makes an AMAZING eggs benedict:)
