Last weekend we had a little reunion at the lake with our old lifegroup buddies from when we were in college. Even though we don't see them very often, we're always able to pick up where we left off and I always end up laughing until I have a stomach ache. Sometimes we get together without little people and get crazy but this weekend we bumped chests, put our hands in, and psyched ourselves up for a weekend with 8 children, 3 of whom are 4 months and under. Here's how it went down.

Fishing. (Silas missed the fishing adventure because he decided to pull an all-nighter and let's just say he was a little grumpy the next day, aka one constant stream of meltdowns, so he got to go take a nap in the truck)

We made sure the tiny ones spent quality time together.

Brian was always willing to take one for the team and "put Mash down for a nap"

Kids (mainly Silas) threw fits. Mike came out victorious in this showdown.

Silas made new friends

Dads took the kids on a mule ride while moms laid on porch chairs under blankets pondering life's mysteries, and later we sang "wheels on the bus" and ate smores around the campfire. I'm mad that I forgot to take pictures. I'm telling myself it's because I was being "in the moment."

We sure had a fun time. Can't wait to do it again!
