This past week my friend Heather and her son Dylan came down from Alaska to stay with us. We became friends 10 years ago at Bible school, and after all these years and a 1000 miles between us we still manage to stay friends. She's been down here twice now but I've only been up to see her once when I was a bridesmaid in her wedding 8 1/2 years ago. I think that means I'm due for another AK trip. Is it ever warm in Alaska? Because I will visit then.
Daphne absolutely loved having a live-in playmate. Dylan is about 9 months younger than she is so honestly is still a bit confused on how to play with a friend. He was not thrilled that Daphne was always trying to hug him. But they got along great, managed to make some trouble, and even had a couple of bath dates. (Don't tell David.) I think Daphne laughed more this week than she has in her entire two years combined. Apparently Dylan is the most hilarious person to ever walk the planet.
Our friend Jen drove down from Washington on Friday with her little twinsies. Babies? Daph loves babies.
All week we stayed up too late and got up too early, much like our Ecola days, but we don't seem to be able to handle it as well anymore. It's 7:34 right now and I feel like going to bed. Hurray for aging.
Hurray for friends.
