Weekend with Friends

Our parish had a seminarian visitor for two weeks and he wanted to meet some families with children to share some  fun experience that he learned through his vocation.  Our friends invited us over to  share the same experience with them since our children our close with each other.  We also got to bond with our parish priest so it was a great time  for us all.  
Get together means  catching up and lots of food to eat.  I am very grateful that our friends invited us over.  I am not a very good host so I don't really invite people to my home, I think that is something I need to work on.  Hosting a party is just something I am not  comfortable of doing.  I guess, I am always worried about what people will say about my home, the food, and all that stuff, that's why I shy away from opening our home to people.  
 I used to host a party when my kids were little for their birthdays but ever since they started going to school, we stopped doing it.  Anyway, here are some of the foods that the host have during the get together.  
Their dog is such a ball of energy, he is a sweetheart and very playful.
Aside from seeing our friends, the part that I love about the whole thing is the  sharing exercise we did.  The last time I have experienced doing it was when I was still working at a catholic school.  We used to have an annual retreat and I kind of miss doing that so I am grateful for the opportunity  offered to us.
The kids had fun playing and  swimming at their pool.  It was chilly but  they didn't mind.
It's always great to visit  our friend's home but  at the end of the day, it is hard  because the kids don't want to leave.  I feel bad that we always overstayed lol.  We all had a great time though and I really do appreciate  them welcoming us to their home all the time.  It means a lot because we don't have many friends and it's nice to have few but very close friends.
