We were so lucky to spend last week with some of the best friends we could ask for. And although we haven’t lived near the Tyson’s since our Milwaukee days, we spent our time together as if nothing had changed. But plenty had changed. I have two more children and Leslie has 2.5 more children. Jobs have changed. Both of us have moved. Steve went back to school…but we picked up seamlessly. It was fun to watch our kids.
Hallie doesn’t remember it at all, but she spent a lot of time with Ella when she was young.
And within 20 minutes of their arrival they acted as though nothing had changed. They were best friends all over again.
Hunter and Jack never even communicated with each other while living there. But they too were close:
Hunter was immediately convinced that Jack was his cousin and he talked about him non-stop. They were inseparable. (They happened to be in matching pirate shirts the day they arrived. They were made for each other)
Bennett and Annie met one time before as we passed through Utah and they had flown in the night before – so she was a new friend that he became attached too.
And in no time, we’ll have pictures of Cannon next to their new addition. Poor Sam didn’t have anyone his age – but he floated amongst all the kids.
We had so much fun together. I have an embarrassing amount of photos to wade through. I have a feeling years down the road, we will fill volumes with fun memories with this family. So grateful.
