lots and lots of pictures

We had so much fun this weekend visiting with old friends. I am so grateful for the time we were able to share with them.
In order to get ready for this weekend I had LOTS and lots of cleaning and shopping to do, then our time was wrapped up being with our friends so I don't have any new scrapping projects to share but I do have some fun pictures.

So, no Sketch Monday today (I really need to get this going again since I missed last week due to no internet.) Maybe I'll get something up for that later today. Or, maybe I'll do that once or twice a month instead of every week. We'll see...

Anyway, here are some fun pictures from my weekend with two of my old college roommates and the time we spent with them. What a blast it was. I was so sad to see them go.
First, we were able to meet with Heather and Brian Smith and their son, Zach. Heather and I were roommates at college about 15 years ago but we'd lost track of each other until she found me one day on Facebook. They happened to be driving through where we live on Friday to go to New Mexico to visit some family of theirs and we were able to get together for lunch. I'd met Brian at school also since he and Heather had dated and then got engaged and he spent quite a bit of time at our apartment back in the days. We had a great time reminiscing and catching up on what has happened over the years. It was so much fun to get to see them again and meet their son.
Brian, Zach and Heather

me and Heather, reunited again :)

me and the family- Hailey, me, Aimee, Matt and Sarah.
Finally a recent family picture with all of us in it.

Here's cute Andi, Hailey's playmate for the weekend. Dylan is Hailey's age but he didn't seem too interested in spending time with her. Silly boy.

And my Aimee. She's such an angel girl.

Here are Sarah and Hailey with Andi on the tire swing at the park

And cute cute Peyton...he kissed Sarah before they left yesterday and said he was going to marry her forever. Is that adorable or what?

And sweet little Soni. She and Aimee had quite the rivalry going.

And little Sarah climbing around

Aren't Sami and Cameron so cute? And to think I knew them before they were even seriously dating. I told her she was going to marry him. I really know how to pick 'em.

Here are Hailey and Andi doing "snow angels" on the grass after we stopped for ice cream.

And my Hailey, almost 5 years old now. Time goes by way too fast.

All of the kids having fun after ice cream. It was great because all of our kids are around the same ages. Andi is the oldest but Hailey and Dylan are only 2 days apart, Sarah and Peyton are close in age as are Aimee and Soni.

Matt and Aimee...I had to beg Matt to give me a "normal" expression for this
pic instead of one of the silly ones he usually pulls. Aimee, however, was not
going to cooperate with me so that I could take her picture.

Wasn't that fun? I have lots more pictures from the weekend but will have to share those another time so that you don't get picture overload :)
Now off to scrap...if I can get the girls to cooperate. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!

Remember when Andi and Zach played together as babies? That seems like so long ago! She's growing up (as I guess my son is too).
