Good Friends = Good Times

I think I was around 9 years old when I was driving in the car with my mom. I had just watched another mom and her teenage daughter in a big fight. I looked at my mom and with all the naivety that a 9 year old has I told her: "I'll never talk to you that way!" Well, of course, my mom just laughed it off and said that I probably would, even though I promised her that I never would (yep, she was right)... but the thing I remember most about that day was that she told me there would be a time in my life when my friends would be more important to me than she would be and that the only thing she hoped is that I would pick good friends... Well of course she was right and thankfully from Jr. High on I always had a good group of friends.

Some of us got together last week for a play date at the park and then again on Saturday for lunch (without the kiddos)! We had a great time, it was so nice to see so many of them again. I realized that a few of them I've known for almost 20 years now! Yes, we also talked about how old we were getting... it'll be 14 years this May since we graduated high school.

Here's some pics:
Colton (looking a little wasted) and Tommy Maxwell. They're only a few weeks apart.

No Kids + Good Food = FUN!

Good to see you Trish!

How FUN is that!? Colton and Lauren looked so cute - how much older is she than him? Is it possible years down the road they could date? Why is it so funny to think about those things? And I love that you shared you mother daughter moment - haha! And dinner was AWESOME THANKS!!

14 years since you graduated? Man you ARE OLD!! Ha ha just kidding! It's been about 7 years for me! I don't feel like you and I are that far apart in age!
