Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. We "upgraded" our internet, then it didn't work for 3 days! Yikes! I was lost without my connection to the world! :)
Yesterday I was helping my daughter with her spelling words when the door bell rang. Lindi went to get it, but I didn't hear her talk to anyone, so I started to walk over and see who it was. Then, a very familiar face rounded the corner of my house and my childhood/youth friend, Tamee Beaver Sutherland, was standing in my living room!
I grew up with Tamee in Warrenton, Virginia. We met when we were 12 years old and have remained friends for 21 years now (yikes!). I haven't seen Tamee since our 10 year HS reunion, 5 years ago, so I was shocked when she walked in my house. What a wonderful surprise! We visited the whole evening and all day today, until she left this afternoon. She went through heck and back (and about 8 airports) to get here, but I hope she will feel like it was worth it! She brought me a special scrapbook album made from pictures and notes from my friends in Virginia. So special! Thanks to everyone who helped contribute and put it together!
Thank you, Tamee, for the amazing talks, the fun surprise and the years of love!! Thanks Tolan and Tami for helping coordinate the details of this great visit!
Posing by my front porch. I tried to get my smile "normal" but this was the best I could do.
So, because of the internet downtime for the last few days, I didn't even get to post about my weekend. Tolan and the boys had a great time with my cousin, Brad, at the Miller Motorsports Park races on Friday. Trenden drove the go-karts and said it was the funnest thing he has ever done! :)
The kids had soccer games on Saturday morning, then in the evening we went to Tolan's cousin's house for a BBQ. Michelle and Anthony Bocchino are so much fun to be with! The kids all had fun together and the adults, well, I think we had even more fun than the kids! At the end of our fun BBQ, they treated us to dessert at their new store, Yogurt Vibes, a frozen yogurt shop that was sooo fun! We loaded up on the much frozen yogurt, and topped it with as many treats, toppings, fruit, fixings, etc as our hearts desired. :) What a blast! If you are in the West Jordan area by the new Oquirrah Hills Temple, you have to go visit and have yourself a treat!
A great weekend and a great week so far! Thanks to everyone for their continued love...and surprises!
