Lucky Mommas Swim Party

Yesterday I had the Lucky Mamma's over for a swim party. I put out an invite on my blog and we were lucky enough to get an email from a wonderful waiting momma who lives in Orange county and was interested in coming to the party. Jennifer ended up coming to the party and the group just fell in love with her. She was so thoughtful and sweet and has been waiting for her daughter in China for over 3 years now. The patience and perspective of this wonderful woman served as a wonderful model to all of us. Jennifer, we are so happy you joined us and hope you will be able to come to many of our activities!!!!

I realized I did not take any pictures of the kids swimming in the pool because I was in there with Mia, so sorry there are no swimming pictures, but enjoy the BBQ pics.

Ethan and Owen were our BBQ masters and cooked all the hot dogs for the kids and the chicken for us moms. They did a super great job and were so proud of themselves. Great job boys!!!!

Those in attendance were Tanya and Gracie, Karen and Becky, Michelle and Ryan, My family, Jennifer and Cassie (at the end). Karen and Kailee and Susan and Georgie were unable to attend but we will for sure catch them next time.

My sister Cassie came as well and totally enjoyed the party. At the end, Owen was taking pictures with my camera and took this picture of Cass. I thought it was such a funny picture that I had to post it (sorry cass).

We had a blast and hopefully the Lucky Mommas would be willing to come back for more swim parties this summer.
