Wonderful Day!

Today was a fabulous day! My friend, Laura, from, and her husband, Paul and their daughter, Sofia, came for a visit! They're on vacation from Sweden and were on their way back to Tennessee from Disneyworld. So, they stopped through Macon to see us!

We started our day by meeting at their hotel and then grabbing breakfast at a nearby Chick-Fil-A. We chatted in there for a long while, and it was so much fun to get to know her.

Next, we drove out to where we live, in Lake Wildwood, and stopped by the play park so Sofia could play for a while. She had so much fun!

Here is a pic of Laura and me from when we first got to the play park:

Then, here is just a cute pic of Sofia:

Here's Laura telling me the story of her Klik-n-Kut, with much disdain. She is probably going to kill me for posting this pic, but it's just too good!! :)

Here's little Sofia, a Scrapbooker-in-Training! :)

After the play park, we went to our house to cool off and hang out. (SIDE NOTE: We closed on our house Friday so we are officially HOMEOWNERS!! Yay!)

Sofia had so much fun singing and listening to Brian play songs like Mary Had A Little Lamb and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. She sang to us in English and Swedish! She has such a sweet and pretty voice.

Here, Brian is showing Sofia how to play ukulele. She was catching on fast!

She was TOO cute "conducting" the music with this pencil.

Paul and Sofia relax in our backyard swing.

Sofia would like you to have some tea!! :)

Later, before they left, we went to a different Chick-Fil-A for a late lunch. Here is Sofia playing in the play area as we ate on the other side of the glass. Her Papa was making her laugh and it was SO cute!!

This was such a memorable day spent with great friends! I won't soon forget it and I really hope we can get together again someday! I feel so blessed to have been able to meet Laura and her family!

We both took lots of pictures (these are just a FEW!) so there will be many layouts forthcoming of this great day!

Have a Happy Week, everyone! :)

Oh wow!! Sounds like you guys had an amazing day! I'm so glad you all got to meet up! Thanks for posting all those pictures too! Sofia is such a cutie! I always comment to Laura about her cute little voice when I talk to Laura on the phone and hear Sofia in the background! :)

This post leaves me hoping that one day I'll have the opportunity to meet up with my Eiffel Tower Sisters in the States one day!!

YEAH!!!! So glad you all had a good time. Laura's a hoot, isn't she? LOL You got some great pictures. Can't wait to see the upcoming LOs. :)

Ami, we had such a wonderful day with you guys! And I mean, how often do you get to eat Chik-Fil-A twice in one day? That must really have been awesome for you!~ HAHAHA

I love all the sweet photos you posted and the one of me ranting is just so... well, ME!! That's really how I look most of the time. LOL Oh, and the group pic was so great! (Aside from the window lamp growing from Paul's head, the little sweeper boy did a pretty good job)

Thanks again for a lovely day and thank you for your gracious hospitality. BIG BIG hugs to both of you!
