Three Saturdays ago, I hit the road with Mommy, Daddy, Mimi, and Poppy to surprise a San Antonio dwelling friend at his 30th birthday party. We had a great time with Micah, Mary, Judah, and baby Claire...even though we were only able to spend a few hours with them.
Mary and Mommy have been friends since they were little girls. Micah and Mommy have been friends since high school. Daddy has been friends with Micah and Mary since college. Daddy and Micah even lived together for a few years (until Daddy decided he needed to move back home so he could save enough money to get married)...and boy did they ever do a great job of keeping each other entertained!
We don't get to see these friends very often...in fact, before this surprise visit it had been years since anyone in my family had seen Micah. When we are able to get together, though, it seems like we just saw them yesterday!
Even Judah and I act like forever friends. The two of us had only met once before his Daddy's birthday party. That didn't stop him from sharing his real drum set and toys with me, though.
He even let me try out his potty chair!
Aren't we fortunate to have such great friends?
