The "freezy picnic"

Thank goodness Amy and Lineaker's wedding was moved to an indoor location! Originally it was to have been outside ~ and trust me when I say that the weather WAS NOT cooperating!

How do I know? Uh, that would be because the reception/national reunion was still outside at the original location. And we froze...

But the chance to meet a few of my AWAA "bloggy buddies," enjoying good food, spending more time with more of our travel group 121 families, and of course watching our girls interact made us forget about the cold ~ at least for a little while.

Maria and Melanie,(forever in my mind as SuSu) the darling of our travel group in our Beijing days!
Ky discusses the quality of the foot with Caroline's Daddy ~ Miter Don (sorry Jon, she doesn't quite have that J sound down yet...)
Kristin, Lottie, Kylie, Caroline & Grace show off their new bears ~ and of course Caleb decided to (and managed quite well) get himself into the Guangdong Girls picture.
Just to show that the kids weren't all "lovey dovey" all the time. Ky appears to be plotting how to take Lottie down to obtain her s'more, and Caroline seems to be letting Caleb know he has crossed the line... (Cindy, I hope you get as big of a kick out of that as I did!)
When we finally surrendered to the cold, we stopped to say goodbye to Amy and Lineaker, pictured here with their beautiful daughter, Beth. It was so hard to leave!

I am so bummed that we didn't meet. I never got the e mail about the wedding being later and showed up to the picnic at 10:30...so by the time everyone else showed up, we were really cold and the girls were over it!

Glad you had fun...maybe we will meet next time!!

Oh, my gosh! That photo makes me howl! I didn't even notice that was going on...I was too busy with the look Kylie was giving Lottie! I'm going to go look at my pix and see if I caught some of that action. GREAT photo of Amy, Beth and Lineker. I will have to add that one to my collection.
