We have several close friends from church who happen to live in our neighborhood and are always blessed to get together and hang out. This year has been especially fun for Novia since she’s a bit older and actually enjoys playing with other kids. Here’s a peak at Novia having fun with her friends.
Novia and Madalyn playing at the splash pad.
This was pretty much as close as Novia would go “into” the water, but to be fair it was REALLY cold!
Novia’s friend Olivia didn’t really like the cold water either.
We moms were “cruel” to our girlies and swung them through the water, well Sarah did it for me since Novia’s getting too heavy for this preggo.
Some day Novia will enjoy the brilliance that is the Splash Pad on really HOT days.
Another morning Novia’s friend, Addie came over to play.
Novia and Addie are just shy of a year apart in age and are fast friends. At least they talk about each other all the time and wave at one another’s houses when passing by. Novia was recently invited to Addie’s birthday party where she had lots of fun. I know I’m really looking forward to all of the play dates, tea parties and sleepovers my girls will be able to have with their nearby girlfriends.

Playing with bubbles!
Happy birthday Addie!
Today Madalyn and Olivia came over to play and this is what I found when I checked on the girls who had gotten very quiet all of the sudden. They were playing sleepover or snuggle party as Novia calls it. She has been having SO much fun this summer with all of her friends.
