Sweets for our Sweets!

On Monday, a preciously pregnant Cara hosted the most fabulous playgroup! Since it was the last "at home" playgroup until Easter, she did anything and everything to make it super perfect for the boys! The food, the conversation, the backyard fun...and of course, the photo shoot made it one of my favorite playgroups to date! Since Amy had taken the most priceless pictures of the boys last year at this time, we decided to try to recreate the shirtless, shoeless boy picture by adding a little extra pizazz...HUGE suckers! And, it worked like a charm!!! We, once again, have pictures that I will cherish for always!!! (Thanks to Cara's amazing editing skills!!!!)
***
First, the boys hopped up on the bench and waited {patiently} for their suckers to be unwrapped!
Then, the licking and clicking began...Some were confused, but my little sweet eater knew what to do right away!...
Priceless and perfect in every way...can't wait to frame one of these!!!...
Sweet friends!...

Then, it was to the backyard for some hunting. My little guy loved Landon's backyard wonderland more than the hunting...but, he had fun none-the-less! ...
Annie made these precious little treats! We took one home to have for dessert and Q loved it!!!...
And, the "never ceases to amaze me Cara" put together these precious goody bags for the boys...complete with a personalized egg for each one! ...

Thank you, Cara, for all that you did to make playgroup such a sweet memory for us and our boys!

Amy & Porter, we missed you so much! I hope you are feeling lots better and we can't wait to do another fun photo shoot with you very soon!

So fun! I love, love, LOVE the photos!!! So cute!! And wow about The goodie bags. If I join a play group with Christopher, it will have to be a much different type of play group, with much lower expectations. Seriously. How do you guys have time? It's like putting on a party every week! Looks like fun. I'm sure the boys loved it. :)
