It sounds kind of odd doesn't it? To already be friends with someone, even though you have never met. And I don't consider everyone I talk to on the internet to be my friend but there is a select group who through the last 4 years of chatting via forums and blogging together, I would definitely consider a friend. And LauraC. is one of them. So I was very excited when the opportunity came up for us to meet in person during her recent trip to San Diego and even more excited when it worked out that we would also be able to get our kids and hubbys together as well. The bonus in all of this is that since I'm already back and she is still gone, I get to blog about our meet-up first. (Insert evil conniving laugh here).
And what can I say? We had a wonderful time. She was everything I expected and more. We had tons to talk about in between looking out for the kids while they ran around Legoland Saturday and Balboa Park Sunday. The time went by too fast and I can't wait for the next time we have the chance to get together in person. And the kids are already asking when they get to play with their new friends again.
Here are Laura and I on Saturday.
I honestly don't even remember what was so funny, but does it look like we are getting along okay?
Then on Sunday, while we waiting for the train ride to start at Balboa Park, Jake and Jadyn were more then amused at Alex as he repeatedly greeted the Panda companion for his journey.
After the ride, we attempted to get a good group shot of the 4 of them but unfortunately the fallen palm fronds were just too intriguing to the trio of three year olds, even with a bribe of M&Ms.
When I blog about our trip to Legoland look for some Easter eggs of Nate and Alex in some of the photos. Until then, I officially declare my first blogfriend meetup to be a success.
