Day to Day

Fun with Mommies

I am happy to say that my quest to expand my local friend pool is going well.  At the end of July, RJ and I got together again with my friend from college and her son.  We were joined by another friend and her daughter.  We met at a little water pad downtown and had a picnic lunch by the river.

Then, we journeyed to the library for a petting zoo exhibit.

After that outing, one of the ladies started a FB group and invited several other moms she knew to join.  This would makes it easier to plan outings for the kids and adult only activities.  Though all the women joined the group, only myself and two others have been active.  Last month the three of us got together for a mom’s night out.  We went to a local tapas restaurant and had a great time.  We’re planning our next outing for the end of this month and we’re including the kids AND husbands. Hopefully, more ladies will join us.  If not, that’s cool.  I’m just happy that it’s looking like I finally have the missing piece to my social puzzle!

      I’m very happy we’re clicking. It would definitely suck if I reached out to a group and discovered I disliked the women. Sorry we’re so far away, we’d love to have you join us.

    Love that. We’ve expanded our circle too. I got together with two other mommies for dinner and all the daddies hung out at our house with the kids. It’s great that we all get along. That social circle is so important!

      Yes, this interaction is very important to me. A group of mom’s at RJ’s school have started meeting for dinner and drinks, also. I missed the first outing, but will attend the 2nd one next week. I’m very excited!

    It feels good to expand your social circle with great people. I can wait to see your new outings.

      I’m excited about the possibilities. A group of moms at RJ’s daycare have started having get togethers as well. I’ll be joining them at a local wine bar next week. Also, we met a couple at our neighborhood cookout last week and I hope to plan some things with them!!

    LOL @ him not liking that water! Roey hated his pool at first, then he loved it when it was time to get out!

      What is it with these boys and water?! Hopefully they won’t be so apprehensive next summer.
