We have recently reconnected with some good friends that moved out of state about 20 years ago. Kevin, was Greg's best friend in high school. He was the best man in our wedding. And Greg was the best man in their wedding. They have two daughters right around our girls age. They moved to Oregon, and then we lost track of them. I found them. They are now in Arizona, after following their daughters to ASU. We were so happy and excited to be spending the evening and day with them. We picked up right where we left off. The guest room all ready and waiting for them.
The goodies ready and waiting.
After they arrived last night from Arizona, we came inside and had a light snack of caprese. Visiting about this and that, and how long it had been. We then headed over to Island's for dinner, where the conversation never lagged. After dinner we came back to our house for home made ice cream with fresh berries. More visiting. Staying up til about midnight, we caught up and laughed, and finally said our goodnights.
This morning after our breakfast, we wandered out to the grove and showed them around. They were amazed at all the avocados!
Here they are....buddies way back then, and so happy to be together again sharing their stories. Boy was it great to see the two of them together!!!
Here are Kevin and Karen and Greg.
Greg and Kevin "blowing it up" over breakfast on the patio.
We had a surprise visit from Jake and our grandgirls.
Karen brought me an aloe vera plant that she grows at her home in Arizona. And a box of yummy lotions and smell good!
The time flew, and before we knew it, we had to say goodbye so they could get on the road again to visit Kevin's Mom. Greg set up the tripod and took a couple of pictures before they left.
It was SO great to see them! It has been way too long, and we won't ever let that happen again. It was a short visit, but we had a great time! Can't wait to see to see them again in October.
Kevin...those 8 x 10 glossies will be in the mail soon.
