eastlake growth groups (play group):chism beach.

have i mentioned before how much i love our church? well i do.
one thing that is cool about it, is the growth groups they do twice a year. there are hundreds to chose from in all areas like kickball, running, mommy groups, beer drinking, wake boarding, dieting, and more!
this season the girls and i wanted to sign up for a play group, and we chose one that meets wednesday all around the eastside for fun outings.
last week we went to grasslawn, which is a favorite for us with it's crazy spiderman style rope structures. however, that being only one of a few outings i had braved on my own with the three kids i did not snap many photos. i think you saw one a few posts back of rowan's butt crack while she played in the sand area. (guess, what you get another one of those thie week. what the heck.)
this week, we all met at chism beach in bellevue on lake washington. the weather was in the 60's but my kids were, 'swims in 65 degree weather girls' yesterday and dove right in.
this week was a lot nicer too, in the fact that we were able to sit and chat and get to know each other. last week we were all over the place and didn't really meet. i am already really liking this gal with a little girl just a month older than row. it is so exciting to be finally meeting people at church! (other than matt hasselbeck of course.)
next week we are looking at doing berry picking...
