Fun Lunch Indeed!

So today Natalie, the kiddoes and I piled into one car, Kristi put Braden into her car, and we caravanned (is that a word?) to Brenham which is close to a half-way point between Houston (where Heather lives and Hayley is visiting) and Austin (where Natalie, Kristi and I live). After a few turn-arounds and wrong roads, we met up with Hayley, Heather and Hope at Chili's and had lunch together. Can I just say that it was like meeting up with dear friends that you haven't seen in a while? Of course, we had never met before but that's not how it seemed. It was such a fun time, just to sit, visit, get to know each other in person, and understand that we really did already know each other. We just hadn't met yet.

Thanks, ladies for letting me be part of such a fun friendship. Another 'tender mercy', I think. We take friendship so much for granted, and need to realize that it's really such a sweet blessing.

**NOTE: Because I am totally retarded, I was the only one who showed up without a camera. Sigh. One day I"ll learn. Till then, check Heather's blog, Hayley's blog, Natalie's blog, or Kristi's blog for documentation of the event. It was great.

I had sooo much fun, and I am so glad we all were able to meet up for lunch. It really did feel like we were all old friends. I loved it(you are just absolutely one of my favorite people, by the way!)

I'm glad you had so much fun! Though I am still a little....okay, a lot jealous, I'm happy that it was such a blast. One of these times I'm going to figure out a reason to go to Texas, besides to see all you cute gals!
