I had a lovely afternoon visiting with a couple of friends from high school today.  Brian was able to watch the kids, so it was just a girls’ afternoon-out kind of thing.  It was wonderful to visit and walk and enjoy the outside (and soak in the “quietness” of being outdoors — Christian has been extremely loud this last week (and Olivia quite whiny) so it was nice not to have all of that background “noise” constantly going on).  Thanks for making that happen LW & SM.  Hopefully we can do that again before many more years slip away!  😉
