It was like meeting a celebrity

Today I got to meet Rachel! I was super excited! We met at Adventure Aquarium, for a day of fun. I was a little nervous about meeting her, because I am much more boring in real life than I appear on my blog.

But it was fabulous. Rachel was so laid-back and easygoing. It felt like we had known each other for years. The conversation flowed smoothly, with no awkwardness. And Rachel is adorable. She is short and petite, with a cute little pregnant belly! Oh, and Max was freaking adorable. Seriously, pictures do not do him justice. He is too cute. And he is so gentle and sweet. A nice change of pace from most of the little boys we encounter.

Although it is hard to believe, I actually remembered to bring my camera. Of course, I took two pictures and my battery died. So, I have no good pictures to share. This lame picture is the best shot I got...Look closely at the picture...Max was eating Chinese food. BY HIMSELF. I was totally impressed with his utensil skills.

When we left, Rachel gave us a bag of goodies. Porgie loved her gift...
Actually, we all loved our gifts! Thank you Rachel!

So, if you have a bloggy friend in your area, I highly recommend that you get together for a playdate!

I had the best time too. I have a few pictures and I must get them onto the computer today and then I can post them. She looks adorable in her new outfit. I am glad we had a blast and we will do it again. HUGS Christy and by the way, you are not boring.

TEACHBROECK said...

Looks like you had fun!!! I am chicken to meet the girls around here..and they are sooo sweet!

There are several VERY Popular Bloggers here in the Philly area, but I would never ever never NEVER invite them anywhere to meet me. I have this fear of rejection.

You Jersey girls seem very (I almost typed "easy"! Not the way it sounded, swear!!) laid back & easy to talk to. I can picture a bunch of us down the shore with umbrellas, coolers of pb&j's and juice boxes while the kiddies run around chasing "eagles" and throwing sand on each other.

Em said...

Aw thats ace you have met!!! Glad you had fun and Wow the gifts!!!

Z's Mom said...
