Summer Fun at the New Jersery Shore with the Chatties


Finally, I have been able to sneak a few moments and post pictures from our June trip to Spring Lake, NJ. Our online group of mom's affectionately known as The Chatty Girls made our annual trip to visit Lucy's home at the shore. I cannot begin to describe what a wonderful time Emily, Grace and I had visiting with our friends. I am continually amazed at what a special bond our girls share and what a closeness the mom's have. Lucy and her mom Laura were fabulous hostesses and we were treated to yummy food, relaxing beach time, fun times at the boardwalk amusement park and face to face chatting time which for me was THE BEST! I don't get to check in with "my girls" as often as I like so for me it was wonderful to have the weekend to catch up with these wonderful women. Can't wait for October!!!
