Playgroup Goodbye

Last week our sweet playgroup threw a going away party for Cooper and me. It was such a bittersweet goodbye. We joined this group a year ago, and it has been such a blessing for us. We have both made some wonderful friends, and Cooper has grown so much socially with the other kids. We are really going to miss all the fun playdates and thoughtful friends.

The theme was "Saying Goodbye is such SWEET sorrow." There was a chocolate fountain and lots and lots of sweets. Heaven for me!

So long Mansfield Christian Moms and Kids! We will really miss you!

Surfside Beach 2011

This past week we headed to Surfside beach for the 2nd Annual Foster Family Beach Vacation! We had a great time full of playing, relaxing, visiting, and A LOT of eating (Thanks Scott!)

Cooper and Kate making "cookies" on the beach with Grandmommy

Boogie boarding lesson from Daddy

Cooper taking Kent and Kate for a spin in the golf cart

Two of the sweetest beach babes ever!

PaPa helping Kate perfect her spiral!

Cooper's favorite activity this beach trip...surfing!

He even learned to say "Wipeout!" every time he fell. After awhile he was falling of purpose just so he could say it. HA!

Everyone checking out Scott's catch.

Kate showing off crab #2!

Watching a movie with Courtney

Cooper and Meghan playing on the deck with his new, beach friendly Cars toys. (Thanks Grandmommy and PaPa!)

Courtney, Kristen, and Grandmommy soaking up some sun. (The wind broke our tent on the first day!)

Grandmommy came prepared with a fun seashell craft for the kids. The girls decorated purses, and Cooper made a box to keep his seashells in. They loved this!

Glow in the dark puzzles! Dad and I may or may not have spend over 2 hours working on a Minnie Mouse puzzle...what can I say, we have to finish what we start.

Eating a popsicle after being such a good boy during family portraits...bribery works wonders!

Kate brought her guitar, and performed her first original song for us. She wrote it about our sweet PaPa Foster. She brought us all to tears!

Cooper couldn't help but give it a try too!

What a fun time with great memories! Can't wait to do it again!
