when blog friends become real life friends...

....sometimes you get get to spend the whole day hanging out.  and when you do {like how we got to hang out with  mandy & bennett on tuesday}, these are the things you do:


you walk around the state's capitol in the misty annoying rain, because when you live in washington state you don't let a little rain ruin your playdate.


you bundle your babies up & get them outside because that is where they're happiest.  even if their blankies are getting soaked by the aforementioned annoying rain.

you go to really really tasty local sandwich shops & stuff your faces with french dip sandwiches...



...and of course you take pictures at said sandwich shop.

then you take pictures of each other with your babies...



...and then you take pictures of each other on the streets of the city.  with weird local city dwellers walking by you & giving you weird looks.  because you are bloggers, & that's what you do.



yes, that is my giant face.  nice to meet you.

and then you part ways & promise to do it again soon.  but it won't be soon enough, because we had an absolute blast & wish we could have fun days like this everyday!  can't you just see the excitement in p-ray's face?


he can't contain himself.

seriously, we had so much fun with these guys.  if you're not familiar with mandy & bennett, then you really need to check out their blog "a sorta fairytale."  bennett is one of the cutest, bright eyed little boys you'll ever see & mandy is such an amazingly talented photographer.  i could look at her pictures all day long.  and sometimes i do.  and that wasn't meant to sound as creepy as it just did.

...and that was our day!  we loved it.

  1. Isn't it the BEST when someone you love from bloggyland becomes a real BFF??!!! I've just had this happen too and I swear I don't know how I lived so long without her. So glad you guys had fun and you have new playdate friends!

  13. I love bloggy meetups. So fun.

    I also love that your walk was not rescheduled because of the rain. Us Washingtonians are hardcore. (But luckily our rain isn't.)
