On this the first really nice day in what seems like forever, we ventured down the valley a bit to Llano Grande Lake Park in Mercedes. Our mission was strictly social, as virtual friends Ed and Marilyn invited us to join them and their friends for a little happy hour. We have followed Ed and Marilyn's adventures through their blog for almost two years. It was a treat to meet them in person.
As we sat in the shade of Ed and Marilyn's lovely home, the boys quickly got to work solving the problems of the world.
We girls did our part, too! The conversation and laughter flowed as we got to know these new friends.
The time passed quickly, and all too soon it was time for us to head into the setting sun and back up the valley to Mission. Thanks, Ed and Marilyn, for a fun afternoon in your lovely park. Now we've seen for ourselves what brings these good folks back year after year.
