New Friends

We took a trip to Burlington yesterday to meet some new friends. To connect the dots a bit, these are folks who knew my friend Rob from his days pastoring a church in Chicago. The chances are slim, but they might get involved in our church plant. We thought it would be a good idea to at least put some faces with the email addresses. We met at Burlington City Park, went out for lunch, and hung out at the park some more.

It was a nice time. They have sons aged 7, 5, and 3. Rob brought his 7 and 5 year-old sons, but his 2 year-old daughter was home sick with mom. The boys all knew each other, so there was that instant bond. Lily was a little wary of these crazy boys. They are great boys, but they are still boys. Not quite her speed.

Noah has a new friend though. He and 3 year-old Andrew (their birthdays are a few weeks apart) became fast friends. They were adorable riding the rides together. Noah kept talking about him afterwards too. It's nice to see the social side of Noah. Preschool has been really good for him in that respect.

If you're ever near Burlington and you want to kill some time with kids, I highly recommend this park. Also, Hursley's BBQ was quite good.
