Catching up with friends


 Back before school started
Bethany and I met my friend Melissa (aka in the comments as Melissa Mae)
and her adorable kids at the zoo.

It was so great to have a reason to get back over there and renew our membership!





Ben went over with me to see the sharks and the dolphins  a few days later.




A few weeks ago, I got to spend a fun day with my sweet friend Carla.
We get to go play at least twice a year.  
(Well, besides our our monthly craft days at church.) 
Once for my birthday and once for hers.


I was too busy shopping and talking for pictures, 
but when we split this malt and the straws were red,
I had to pull the camera out for a minute.

I'm so thankful for these friends.  We often don't get to stop long enough to talk when we see each other coming and going.  It can take weeks to pause and look back and savor special moments together...but their faithful presence (and that of others) in my life reminds me how blessed I am.

Love those butterfly pictures! The "red" shot is so clever and well executed.

Melissa Mae said...

love you...

Thank you, Sandy. If you knew Carla and how well she always coordinates everything--well the photo was just a no-brainer. :-)

Love you too, Melissa!

Thanks for the sweet words, Tracy!
I treasure our times together.

Loved the action (dolphin) and the colour (butterfly on yellow, red nails) in this post!
