A mile-high high

If you've been to Julie's, you know we've been to Julie's this past weekend. There was much eating (thank you Kyle!), musical beds, walks around the neighborhood, cooing at the baby (OMG the baby. He is edibly cute), an intense game of Taboo in which Nancy's name was invoked (how else could I explain "hat trick" without saying the word "hockey"?), and not nearly enough picture-taking--partly because I left my camera at my brother's overnight. (Ask Julie about how he returned it on his motorcyle, fully decked out in leather and chains.)

Once again, Jo and Tacy picked up without a moment's hesitation and didn't leave each other's sides, awake or asleep, for the entire length of the visit. Neither did Jo wear any of the clothes we brought for her, preferring instead to raid Tacy's closet. I don't know if it's the fact that they spent so much time together as infants (nearly every day from three months to two years) or the fact that we parents do our best to encourage their continuing relationship, but these girls have a strong bond that's now weathered four years apart. I hope it never breaks.


Goodbye Denver--we'll be back as soon as we can.

Sounds like you had a wonderful time. I love hearing about your friendship.

And I really love that you invoked my name in the game of Taboo. ;-)

It's just so heartwarming to see kids keeping pace with their long-ago friends. I hope my daughter and her BFF can keep it up for the two years her friend is in NZ. Your kids give me hope!

Missing you guys. A lot.

Must go Mapquest route from our place to yours. The next road trip can't be worse than the last, can it?

So glad that you were able to get the girls (and you) together after all!

If they go to the same college, I'm thinking you can save a bundle by just buying one large wardrobe that they can share.

Yea for lasting friendships!
