Fun in February

Last weekend we were blessed to have a slight break from winter’s nasty grasp, and enjoyed a visit from our dear friends --the Streu girls, and their families.  

I have written about these childhood friends before; we grew up across the street from one another.   For 37 years I have known Angie, Amy and Darcie.  That is saying something, isn’t it?

We try to get our families together at least once a year.  We all get along so well, and usually the reunions do not disappoint.  This visit was no exception. 

There was lots of talking and catching up…

In hindsight, it is a miracle that the get together occurred at all, considering the weather has not given us any breaks this season and people were travelling from Atlanta and Indy.   

We chose to embrace what mother nature had (already) dumped in our path (or in this case, our backyard) rather than curse expletives at the relentlessness of it all (which I know we are all doing anyway)….

There was lots of laughing and silliness...

This is one of my favorite pics...

Yes, those are grown men on children's sleds.

and yes, it was as hilarious as it looks.

Childhood friends are the best.  Thanks girlies, (and fams) for making the trip!
