Bloomington Vacation Day One

Last week we had some extra vacation time we needed to use up this month so we decided to take a little family vacation to see some of our good friends, Brandon and Anna Chasteen. I grew up with both of them from 11 years on. We played together at church, went to movies together as teens, hung out all the time, and saw each other get married! (They got married about 6 years before me though. I had to wait a little while longer for my Prince Charming! Hehe...)

In 2008, when I moved up to Kentucky, the Chasteens also moved to Indiana. Their new hometown is only a couple hours away from us here. Somehow, in the first three years of us all living up here, we never saw each other. Then, this past Christmas they invited our little family to come for a visit and we were able to go. We had a fabulous time together and Kyle got along great with them as well! We were excited to plan another trip back. However, it took a while since we moved and had a baby this spring. So this last week was the perfect timing because Abigail was finally old enough to enjoy playing with theirs kids.

We drove over Monday evening. Tuesday morning us moms got the kids ready and we went to their church's Mom's Playgroup at a park. It was so much fun!

We piled all five kiddos into their mini van. I know some people will think I'm crazy, but I can't wait to own a mini van! It's so wonderful to be able to ride together with friends!

Abigail loved the slides at the park!!

She loves to be active and going!

One of the best parts about visiting the Chasteens is that Anna is a fabulous cook! We love to eat her cooking. She makes almost everything from scratch and it's all delish! I hope that one day I will be as good of a cook at she is! :-)
