Good Times...

Our community group over the weekend went to Possum Kingdom Lake (no idea why it is named this)? It is only about 2 hours from Dallas and a sweet family blessed us with allowing us to use their amazing lake house. It reminded me of many beach houses in N.C., but in Texas people go to the lake! We have 4 couples in our group and only one has family in town. So we always take our children along. We had 5 toddlers and 2 babies. They did fabulous! We went on a retreat about 6 months ago and it was so much more difficult. It is really neat to see them growing up and enjoy playing together. We got to enjoy time in the hot tub which was like a warm bath for the kids, rides on the golf cart, playing outside, and looking at lots of animals. Ellie and Anna loved to look at the deer which they called reindeer. We also saw a couple of coyotes and horses. After, the kids were in bed we all sat outside on the back porch that had a fire place and enjoyed great conversation about where we are at as couples, parents, and individuals. It is amazing how God knit our group together and we are so thankful they are in our lives. Another highlight was the girls went out to lunch while the guys watched the kids and then the guys went out that night while we watched the kids. It was really fun to spend time together and talk without kids in high chairs etc....! Anyways, we had such a fun time and are so thankful for good friends and the blessing of getting out of the city for a weekend!

That sounds like so much fun, Holly! Glad y'all got to do that. We have a group of really good friends here (5 families- 12 kids) that we have talked about us all getting away and doing something like that.
How are you feeling? ...Is this pregnancy wearing you out or are you still feeling good?
