we met the grdinas and the tates almost immediately after moving to ohio. they both lived directly behind our townhouse. we have all since purchased our own homes, had kids and the tates moved to NC about when we moved to SC. the grdinas have remained in ohio and it has been a struggle to try to get together as frequently as we would like. in fact, we haven't all been together since stacey and autumn were pregnant with the girls and they are about 18 months old now. too long! well, this weekend the stars aligned and we met at the tate's in NC. although the ladies and the kiddies didn't leave the neighborhood (we didn't have a vehicle large enough for 4 carseats and the 3 of us...ha ha), we had a blast just catching up. plus, the kids got along great and had a wonderful time playing with the toy store that is the tate living room.
