Long Time No See

In May 2002 I graduated from graduate school with a great bunch of girls- and one guy! We had spent 2 long years of our lives studying, goofing off, having parties, throwing wedding showers, taking tests, making fun of professors, and finally taking our finals and Speech Pathology Praxis tests and earning our degrees. Although we were all different, and formed our small groups of close friends, we really bonded as a group! We have done a good job keeping in touch over the years- 7 years to be exact! Although we may go several months, or even years without talking, it is just like old times when we finally get together! Yesterday, Kristina came into town from North Carolina. We were having a wedding shower for our friend Julie, but we had a little play date to let our kiddos see each other! Allison let us come to her house to let them play!

The girls had a picnic lunch. They are all 3. Blake was there also. She is almost 10 months old and had her lunch in the high chair. Lanie (spelling undecided at this time:)) who is 14 months old was dining in her booster chair.

Making silly faces and their mommies crazy trying to get a good pict of the 3 of them!

After the shower, Kristina and I did a little shopping and headed over to Alicia's house to help get ready for the shower. We had a lot of delicious food!

Here is the beautiful soon to be bride Julie!

Our class! This was one of the best turn outs we have had in while. Several were missing because of sick children or other conflicts, but it was great catching up with these ladies!
I made the punch and it was a success! I got the recipe from Kelly's Korner, but it is easy...
Cherry Limeade Punch
2 liter Sprite
1 can frozen Limeade concentrate
1 jar Maraschino cherries
I doubled this, but used only the 1 jar of cherries. It is more of a summer drink, but worked out well last night!
