Every Tuesday and Thursday the ladies in our ward congregation get together for a big “water playdate.”

We meet at a local city splash pad and watch the kids enjoy the water while we sit in the shade and enjoy each others company.

It’s so fun to be around friends who “get” you.

All the ups and downs that come with being a mommy can become overwhelming sometimes,

but when you have great people to hang with that understand where you’re coming from,

it makes you feel like you’re not alone.  Angels here on earth, I tell ya.

After the morning play date, my kids and I head on over to a friend’s swimming pool to deal with the continued heat of the sun.

I love to watch my kids splash and play with each other, making family memories along the way.  I love my kids.

I am so grateful to have the many blessings I do.

Life is good!
