A visit with old friends

It's been 17 years (I think) since I've seen my friend Susanna.  We were the best of friends when my family lived in Ft. Smith, Arkansas.  I would go play at her house after church on Sunday's and we would have sleepovers.  We usually stayed at Susie's house, because she got homesick.  I, on the other hand, loved to get out of the house.  Much like my Laney bugs.  She loves her family, but would give anything to have a sleepover without us there.  Susanna taught me how to climb trees.  Their family introduced me to Dr. Pepper and I have a continued love affair with the soda.  I'm pretty sure we used to sing in church together, you know, like up front with a microphone.  Maybe I made that up, I was like 10.  I have lots of fond memories with her and her family.  Her parents were always so sweet to me and made me feel like part of the family when I was over.  My family ended up moving, and we tried to stay in touch.  Thanks to Facebook, we have reconnected!  Susanna is married and has an adorable little boy.  Her family and her parents came through here, on their way to the Grand Canyon.  We met at a Cracker Barrel. It was like 17 years had only been a few weeks.  Except we are married and have five kids between the two of us!  It was a really wonderful time and I am so blessed to have met up with them again.  Thank you guys for stopping to see us.  It meant so much to me.

Addy is only a few months older than Hayden.  Don't you think they would be a cute couple?  We decided they should get married some day.  Isn't he the most beautiful little boy?  Those blue eyes.
Me, Susanna, and the kiddos.  We probably should of had the husbands in this picture, too.  They kids were antsy and I didn't even think about it.  Sometimes I forget stuff with my children around.
