Hi Allison : )

We had a beautiful day today. As promised I took Allison to the Cheesecake Factory for yummy coffee, Dulce de leche Caramel Cheesecake, and hot chocolate for the boys - who promptly decided they could sit nowhere else but beside her. I got my side all to myself - a rare occasion. They totally LOVED her. And after meeting her last night I knew they would. They know and appreciate only the sincerest of hearts. Little Guy totally dolled up on her, and even Big Guy did, who is VERY cautious at warming up to people - it takes him a good long while to get to the cuddly stage with anybody besides Mommy, but it was instant with her.

We went to the Arboretum that has a gorgeous fountain area and discovered a beautiful vista point and just beyond that a little winding rock path down to a duck pond that I had no idea about. The little pond had fountains in the middle, a little duck house, picnic benches and a winding path around the edge, as well as the sun setting with the light reflecting off the pond making it even more gorgeous. The kids loved it, as well as the marble or alabaster - we couldn't figure out which they were and I can't seem to find it online - cow sculptures they could climb on that they had above in the park area.

Next stop was picking up Hubby after his class. I'm so happy she was able to meet everybody! We even got to stop by our house and give her the grand tour - thank God because LG was in tears that she wouldn't get to see his toys before she left. 'Next time' was not quite good enough for him. So they got to play Star Wars with the light sabers and Batman and Darth Vader with their Halloween capes and hide in the closet for BG to find them.

It was a wonderful, wonderful visit - I couldn't have pictured it going any better. It was so strange because I felt like I knew her already and she knew me, we didn't have to deal with the so what do you do? questions and worry about what kind of impressions we were making, we were just able to get into the meat of things - that and girl talk without it being small talk. Love, love, LOVED it. Pictures are up! Don't forget to sign in to see the most recent ones.

Oh my gosh I had SO much fun too! I didn't want to leave! :-( I can't wait to post about it myself (even though you took all the words out of my mouth!). I can't wait to get together again!

Yes, it's that kind of rare connection that one is so lucky to have with the other. I felt that with our GFF. :)

How lucky you and Allison are, too! Sounds like fun...and Cheesecake Factory...yum!

NO FAIR! I'm so jealous! I know exactly what you mean, though... I felt the same way with Cecilia. It's so funny to meet someone you know so "well" via blogging, and still feel that connection in person! I can't wait to see pics!

That is so great that you were able to meet . . and that it went so well!! I wonder if the cow sculptures were the same ones I've climbed before . . were they near an Amy's ice cream??

Cecilia I told Allison all about you - we're going to have to ALL get together! And I'm thinking since two of us already live in Texas... that or a beach vacation or a European vacation, I'm really not preferential :) !

Girl don't worry - you were there in spirit! But seriously I felt the same way when you met Cecilia I was sooooo jealous (and I'm not the jealous type), so now we know each other all in spirit. That works right? Almost

Laura yes they are! I never realized how beautiful they are, and how sweet the faces are until now. And the kids just LOVE them.

Cecilia said...

Woohoo!!! Please, please, please make a plan! Maybe we can all visit GFF when she gets to have her peanut!
