May 2002--that's how long we have been out of college. That's 14 years! While I've seen my roommates on and off, we could only remember one reunion weekend, and that was when I was newly pregnant with Jackson. Simply way too long ago. So we decided to do something about it!
|Amanda and I kicked things off with dinner at Gloria's on Friday night. Then we met Jen and Nicky at Top Golf on Saturday morning and had plenty of kiddos there, too. |
They just love this place!
|Big brother got his sister all set up for her first turn.|
|It was the first time for us to meet Jen's long-time boyfriend. |
He fit right in with everyone--always a relief!
|Miss Thang was so pleased with herself for snatching Madison's cool new shades.|
|She mostly just bebopped around our two bays, but every once in a while she'd try her hand at golf.|
|She also loves hiding in small spaces. This is where I found this stinker when asking all the kids to take a photo:)|
|All six of them--even the little sassy one!|
|Turns out, she loves golf...|
|and posing for the camera when the mood strikes her.|
|A few hours later, Carol and her family made it in from Houston. |
Reunited and it feels so good!
|There's nowhere to be but in the water during the summer, so everyone hopped in.|
|We all enjoyed the afternoon so much.|
|Jackson, Cason and Chase played plenty of basketball--practicing their dunks, shots off the diving board and even some from the slide.|
|Chase showed us his flipping skills...|
|we got to visit with great friends...|
|the boys played HORSE...|
|and this little girl zipped all around the pool in her lifejacket.|
|After our fajita dinner, we got back in the pool for an evening swim. |
My favorite time in our backyard!
|I'm pretty sure the kids enjoyed themselves as much as we did.|
|It was a fantastic night that I didn't want to end!|
|Cameron convinced his parents to let him stay up way past his bedtime...|
|there was simply too much football to be played to go to sleep!|
|I hope that this sweet girl makes lifelong friends, too. No doubt that she will.|
|We had everyone over for breakfast the next morning and didn't want to say goodbye. |
I'm hoping we can do this every summer from now on!
