Jack, Sam & I spent the morning catching up with friends old and new. My best friend from high school, Becca lives about 35 miles away and has a 2 year old daughter, Evelyn. Since we moved here almost 3 years ago, we've gotten together a hand-full of times...first when I was pregnant, then later when she was pregnant and I had a newborn, then twice more with our little ones in tow. Well, this was the first time the kids were old enough to actually play with one another and hopefully remember the new friend they were playing with. Jack and Evelyn spent two full hours chasing each other, making each other laugh and generally just being two year olds. In between the occasional reigning in of the wild ones, Becca and I caught up and enjoyed just being mommies.
I love this shot of Jack & Evelyn. The look on their faces is one of bewilderment as if they can hardly believe I have poked my head (and my camera) into the Thomas tent, which is in their minds very clearly a kids-only zone! Thanks, Becca & Evelyn for a fun morning. The cookies were SOOO good!
