We got to see some friends we don't get to see very often on Saturday. These friends moved away almost 5 years ago, but we will be friends for life.
They were coming though town headed to meetings and family in another state, but it worked out perfectly for another reason.
Our friend Alyson will lose her mom to cancer in a matter of weeks. While she was still able, they held a tea in her honor. It was special. And made more special because Lori and her daughter Emma were to attend able.
Then we all went to dinner. And then to Alyson's house to hang out for a while. It was special. We love this family. We miss them.
Jonathan and Emma grew up together and were the best of friends until they moved away. Now that they are getting older and don't see each other very often, it's a little hard for them. But they'll always be special friends.
Benjamin was so excited to see his buddy Jackson. He was counting the minutes until they arrived. Benjamin doesn't have many close friends, so to get to spend a few hours with Jackson was heaven for him.
Alyson, Lori, and I have been friends for years (Alyson and I for 17, then we met Lori a year later). It was fun to all be together again if only for a little while.
I didn't get a picture of the guys, but I think Greg, Jack (Lori's husband), and Paul (Alyson's husband) had fun too!
