First we visited with Donna and her family. We had fun playing and playing and playing and talking and talking and talking! Hannah was thrilled to have two little girls with Down syndrome and an active seven year old boy (and all their toys) with whom to play. She was also happy with the cook(s)! You can't beat it when both Dinner and Breakfast chefs fix her favorite foods! Donna and I got some time to catch up (it's been about a year since I've seen her in person!). Of course, we didn't get any pictures of us together, only the girls. (rumor has it that Donna might start blogging again some time soon....)
After Donna's, we went to meet some new friends! My online friend Deb recently moved to Virginia Beach, and I was happy to have the chance to meet her and her family! Deb and her husband Tom have five children, with just two girls at home now. Meghann is nine years old, and Anya, who joined their family through adoption, is four. Anya has Down syndrome and is of Ukrainian heritage.
Hannah and I had a lovely luncheon with them all, and plenty of time for the girls to play and be silly!
We scooted out the door in time to go see a show at the Scope in Norfolk. Hannah has had an ongoing crush on Handy Manny (from Playhouse Disney) for a couple years now. So I caved in and bought tickets to the live show. She was very excited!
We're home and can't believe how quickly the weekend disappeared...(cue The Mamas and the Papas, "Monday, Monday, bahhh-bahh, bah ba-ba bahhh"). (don't blame me if you have that song stuck in your head) (well, I guess it is my fault, but it's stuck in my head now too, so I commiserate with you)
