Black and White Wednesday - "Our little summer get-away"

MACMAC Summer 258
Four glorious days of soft sand, warm shallow water, sun and cool breezes, giddy giggly children running about, fabulous friends and food and drinks a plenty.

The perfect recipe for a get-away, get together with friends.

We have a secret name to our little club of friends, hand picked and honed through many years of dreaming and waiting for our children - all from China.

We started off as just girls (well....women really) and have our girl's nites out throughout the year and every once in a while get all the families together.

The water was so perfect it was really hard to get the kids out after many hours straight in the lake.

It sounds and looks like you had an amazing time. I love how sharp the water is in your pictures. Even though it is not completely flat you can still see reflections in it.

Oh, these are beautiful and it looks like you all had such a lovely time. Milana looks more little-girlish (as opposed to babyish) now in these pics. :)
