an afternoon with friends

Nothing says summer like playing in water and hanging out with friends. Our friend Erica invited us to come play at their house this afternoon along with other moms and kids. We love their backyard and their perfect company. I could chat with Erica for hours.

June is spunky and sweet. She decided to go J-Lo style with her swimsuit at first:
but we got it fixed and turned around:
Lucy and June are 9 months apart and play well together (unless the Dora playhouse is involved):
Natalie brought this great water pool/fountain. It was really perfect for the kids. Not too deep and plenty of water, splashing everywhere:
The younger kids had fun playing with chalk and snacking:
How cute is Charlie here? I love a babe in the bare:
Child's paradise. A table just their height, with all sorts of treats to choose from. Owen chose wisely.
Little Lauren melts my heart. She's got the cutest face:
And does it get any prettier than this? June, you are a doll:
...a beauty just like your mom. Erica and her new little guy, Wesley.
Meet Wesley Munson. Another cutie!
More good friends, Erin and her cute son Tyler. Awesome face Ty. Cracks me up! When I told Lucy that his name was Ty, she replied, "just like my dad wears a tie!" Um, sort of.
Natalie and Lauren. So sweet:
Laura Daines (who just had a baby too), me, and Erica and Wesley:
Thanks for a fun afternoon ladies! Saying goodbye to great friends will by far be one of the hardest things about moving.

And with wet clothes in our bag, we traveled home partially naked.
