My friend Tracey, aka Granny Trace, invited Carol and I to her house — Turtle Tree Farms — for a girlfriends’ sleepover on Friday. Tracey, Carol, and I have known each other for 35+ years. We don’t get together for stuff like that nearly as often as we’d like, so it’s always fun when we do.
I left my house on Friday as soon as I finished work and drove to Tracey’s, outside of York, Pennsylvania, arriving just in time for dinner.
I love, Love, LOVE hot dogs cooked over a campfire. Really.
We had marshmallows for dessert. Some of us had LOTS of marshmallows. 🙂
Like I said earlier, just getting together is always something to look forward to, but this time was extra special. This time, we got to meet some new family members.
Tracey adopted two kids earlier this year. They were a Mothers’ Day gift from her husband. How cool is that?
Carol and I had seen a few pics of the kids, twin girls (not identical), and heard some stories about them, but we hadn’t met them.
They were already in bed when I arrived last night. I was excited to meet finally them the girls this morning. They’re cute, even if they are real animals.
That’s lounge wear, by the way. I didn’t go out in public dressed like that!
They’re very curious, too.
It was pretty funny just how curious they are. Every time I’d stoop down to take a picture, they’d run over.
Tracey has other animals, too.
She also has three cats, a family of ducks (parents and three babies), and some more chickens who weren’t at all keen to be photographed.
Tracey has a lovely country farmhouse. It’s always very warm and welcoming.
Hanging out with girlfriends is priceless. Really. I’m lucky to have such great friends.
And you know I love Tracey’s critters.
Speaking of critters, my girls were happy to see me when I got back home. They were quite interested in my dirty laundry, too. LOTS of new and interesting smells, that’s for sure.
Thanks again Trace! I had a wonderful time. Thanks to you and Carol, too, for the goodies you sent me home with (Halloween decor, homemade jam, and frog wine).
I’m already looking forward to our next gathering. Love you girls!
