a Birthday

Today is Miss Lauren's Birthday.
Her mommy is my oldest and dearest friend.

We met when she was 7 and I was 8.
She didn't like me very much at first.

I followed her around until she finally agreed to be my friend.
I am persistent like that.

We went to Lauren's 4th birthday party on Sunday.
The little girls said hello...

Eva and Lauren

There was a trampoline...
of course the monster loved it.

jumping

Football was played...

Notice the dirty leg... this monster loves dirt.

Hotdogs were roasted...
candles lit...
presents opened...
cake tasted.

But my favorite moment... 

I was standing beside Lauren' s mommy, one of my very best friends,
a friend that I have known since we we were still babies.

We were chatting about the what-nots and going-ons in our lives,
and we turned around to see this....

Lauren and Eva

Our babies catting away,
talking about the what-nots and going-ons in their lives...

while their mommies smiled and got teary eyed...
and soaked it in.

Cute photos. Really like the trampoline one. She looks like she is marching or dancing. Cool
