We took a vacation to Oklahoma at the beginning of July, and on our way to Tulsa we stopped in OKC to eat lunch with my very dear friend and her family. My friend and I have known each other since about 3rd grade, maybe late 2nd grade. Stayed close all the way through high school, even though we were at different schools, and lost touch sometime during college. WELL. Thank you God for facebook!!! We found each other again, to my great joy, and then I got to see her! YAY! Her family is gorgeous and so super sweet. It was an amazing afternoon together!
I *had* to bring my camera inside, because of course if it stayed in the van it would get too hot. Right? So I asked the girls if they would let me take their pictures. They said yes. : )
Little Missy and I had a deal. A pretty face for me, ...
...then a silly face for her! We had FUN!
I think she maybe thought I was a little crazy when I told her no, don't look at me--look at the mirror. But it worked!
And this handsome little sweetheart was waaaay too busy for the camera, as every good one year old should be. But I got him anyway. ; )
And big sister helped get the smile!!!
All of our kids together. A lot has changed since we were 18!
This picture gets me every. single. time. This is my oldest daughter and my friend's oldest daughter, who are the same age as each other, and also just about the same age their mommies were when they first met and became friends. My mother would have loved to have seen this.
