wine and pizza

so there i was this afternoon, feeling all lonely and dejected with ryan gone. when aidan and delia got up from their nap, we decided to walk around outside. i pushed delia in the stroller while aidan pushed his new lawn mower toy that he is absolutely in love with (thanks, becca!). not 2 minutes into our walk, my neighbor who lives in the cul-de-sac and has 2 boys - 4 and 2, drove up and rolled her window down, "we're coming out! come over!" we were soon joined by another mom and her 2 daughters - 4 and 2, who brought over some chilled wine. i've been trying to visit with these young moms for awhile now, but we just always seem to miss each other. soon, we drug out our camping chairs and ordered pizza and chatted into the evening with our wine while watching the kids play in the circle. it was so nice to be able to enjoy more than 5 or 10 minutes of conversation and just relax and get to know these other women. we had a great time and were sad to pack up our chairs and walk home when bedtime came around. it was just what i needed. oh, yay!
