BrrrBabies in Minneapolis

Most of you know this, but when I was pregnant with Bennet I joined an online pregnancy group. We were all due around the same time- Dec. 21-31, 2005. Over the 4th of July this year seven families from my online baby group met in Minneapolis. I had met 2 of them before in person, but 4 were online friends until this week. It was so much fun. I've been chatting/talking to these women for the last 2 years and they've become true friends. Meeting them in person was just too cool! The families came from Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, South Dakota and Ontario, Canada

It was quite an ordeal getting this photo, but we did it. There wasn't even too much photoshop involved. From Left to Right (back row): Allie (Dec 8), Amy and Scott (from Illinois, near Chicago); Carla and Heather from Ontario, Canada (Dec 15); Lindsey, Aiden (Dec 19) and Gary (from Michigan); Bennet (who super crabby) (Dec 21), Nick and I; Brenda, Terry and Tyler (Dec 3) and their other kids Hailey, Mason and Brandi in front (from South Dakota); Carrie, Jonny and Colin (Dec 21) and Dylan in front of Carrie (from Kentucky), and in the front row on the left, Tommy, Talan (Dec 6) and Andrea, with their other two children Caitlyn and Connor in front of them (from Illinois, near St. Louis), and then of course Angela and Greg (who go with Carla & Heather) in the front right.

And here are the brr mamas and babies. L to R... Lindsey, Carla, Me (Bennet still crying), Andrea, Brenda, Carrie, Amy.

And just to show that Bennet wasn't always screaming :) Here she is with Nick, Greg and Heather at the Mall of America.
