Antalya and I have had a busy day! This morning we made the hour drive to my parents house to have lunch with my mom, and Sheridan - one of my best friends. We met when we were both living in Israel 8 years ago. We came back to the states the same time and were roommates for several years until she decided to move to Manhattan where she has been living ever since. It was so great to see her. I feel blessed to have a friend that no matter the distance or the time that passes, our friendship stays strong. It was so great to see you Sher, and I can't wait until next time!
After a short rest and a snack we headed to our Early Intervention's yearly summer barbeque. Some of Antalya's cousins came along to join in the fun. Antalya loved her first taste of cotton candy. Can you blame her? I think I still get just as excited when I see cotton candy as I did when I was five. It is heavenly!After dinner a fire truck came and squirted it's hose into the air so everyone could play in the water. The kids loved it. I had fun running through the spray with Antalya.
And here is my favorite picture of the day!
