josh and i graduated from samford ten years ago, and we've been blessed to not only keep in touch with many of our college friends but to still share our lives regularly with several of them. while we were in school, a few of us girls (namely me, kerry, and julie) became fast friends as we each began dating our now-husbands (who were all fraternity brothers). we did so much together like formals, step sing (you fellow SUers will appreciate that), and double dates.
josh and i even woke kerry and julie up the night he proposed to me so that we could share the exciting news with them. (girls, as for posting a "just woke up" photo of you on the internet, it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission, right? right???)
as the year went on, we even had the joy of each taking part in one another's weddings.
those young twenty-something newlyweds of back then have all grown up now...
...and the double-dates of old transformed last week into quite the party when jason, julie, and their two precious children were in town. is it still considered "double-dating" if you have eight children in tow?
some of the kids hadn't even met one another before, but they played together like they had known each other all their lives.
of course, technically, these two have been friends since birth...
it probably goes without saying that i couldn't stand the thought of all of us being back together and not getting a photo of the whole under-six crowd, so to get a fun shot of everybody, we played a good old-fashioned game of "make this face".
which quickly turned into laughing:
i love these little guys...
...and i love their parents. thank you guys for such a fun night!!
