Must Be My Year for Reconnecting With Old Friends
I have had such fun this summer connecting with old friends....my best friend from my childhood, Deanna Brooks Kocherhans and I had lunch the other day. We figured out that we had lived in the same city for the last 25 years or so but never connected! It was a blast to re-live and talk about old times and people from the past.
I had another opportunity on my drive to Seattle to stop and see a dear friend who had been my YW's leader and we had many adventures together. The bonus was I got to see her mom who had been good friends with my mom and it was so great to see them both. We had a lovely lunch at her house in Kenniwick, WA and then off we went to press on to Yakima, Wa and get the first glimpse of the famous Perry House, hand built by Sara!
We had such a blast seeing all the Perry's and we got to see Christena and kids! The house is so beautiful and a work in progress as they complete the last few projects. Christena and Tyler are so good to come and help out and I'm sure the extra hands are appreciated. Amanda and I loved that Christena stopped working on the house long enough to cut our hair! What a treat! We were treated to a yummy dinner and a divine breakfast of Waffles and strawberries and cream!
Off we go now on our way to Seattle and pressing forward to The Boat Trip (cue the Gilligan's Island music here)!
