Two of a kind

Remember I told you that I got to meet a blogger friend in person, in real life, face to face…  and she didn’t even run away screaming !  That was a relief.  It was really great to get to know her better and meet her family.  She also has three children.  Now she does have two girls in bunch so if I appear to be a bit more insane, loopy (oh let’s not go on here) it’s only because all my children are wild and crazy boys.  

Both of our middle children are pretty close in age, got along from the word go and, get this……  have the same name, Colter!  I asked where they got the name Colter because it is not a common name at all.  Turns out they named him after the same person we did,  the mountain man John Colter

Colters 1

So these two are either Double Trouble….    or….. Colters 2

Twice as Nice!  

Either way it was so fantastic to meet this wonderful family and to have our little mountain men be best buds.  We can’t wait until we get to see them again!

Wow!! That is just amazing that they have the same name!! They look like best buds! Glad you all had a nice visit!

It looks to me as though they may have formed a "for life" friendship. I can picture them still buds when they are 18.

That is so awesome I love meeting new people and forming new friendships. Those boys are very handsome and share a great name!

Maybe we should just do more of this? just name everybody the same name and then when youre having trouble spitting out the name, well,,,, we'll know that old timers has set in!! Just think of the time and money we will save just trying to diagnose the problem!!

From those sly grins I have to say double trouble! ;)

There are a lot of boys named Colter down here in my area. I can think of three.

Meeting bloggy friends in real life is great! I happened to meet one right in my hometown and we totally hit it off.

I love the pictures of the Colters! What a neat stroy!

So cool to meet a blogging friend (and their family) in real life... Those are two handsome little men!

I love these pictures of the boys Carin! So they were getting there hair wet? I had no idea!;) Maybe it's a good thing that we don't live next door to each other...but then on the other hand maybe that would be just what my little mountain man needs. Poor guy with 2 sisters!

Thanks for sharing these pictures and we'll look forward to seeing you again!

I like twice as nice. I'm going to meet my first blogger friend in real life next week too. Let's hope Allison (Slice of Heaven) doesn't run away either :)

That's adorable! Two cute little Colter's. Love those photos and the effect you used.

How great is it that you got to have a blog friend in real life! It's also great to have such a connection in your boys!
