Reunions and Introductions

On Saturday, I was able to visit with one of my oldest and dearest friends Kristen who had flown up from Florida for a wedding. Since she was staying up in MD about an hour away from where I live I threw Hunter in the car and we drove up to have lunch with her, Kent and little Mr. Smith.

I haven't seen Kristen in person since she came to visit when Hunter was about 5 weeks old. Needless to say he's changed a bit. We were so excited to get our little guys together and watch them play and interact and they ended up doing really well together. We had lunch at Olive Garden and both boys were well behaved, no major tantrums or meltdowns to embarrass us. There were only a few minor disagreements over wanting the same toy car but nothing too dramatic.



I think they liked checking out each others toy stash.
 
After lunch, they still had some time to kill before they had to get ready for the wedding so we all went back to the hotel to hang out by the indoor pool and indoor mini golf where the boys could just run around and burn some energy and Kristen and I could finally talk and catch up a bit.

This is what we got when we tried to get them to sit next to each other for a photo.



 
 

We've been friends for 15 years! Ever since AOII Bid Day way back in 1998. Man do I feel old!

It's amazing how far we've come. Two little boys and twins on the way! (For Kristen, not me!)
 
Even though we only got to spend a few short hours together it was totally worth the drive up to not only see my pretty friend in person (and rub her twin filled belly) but to finally get our boys together. Now we just have to figure out a way to make FL closer to VA!

Living so far from close friends sucks, I know that too well, but I'm glad you got to spend a little bit of time together.

I am so glad you 4 got together. How cute are the boys playing together? I love that distance hasn't changed your friendship.
