Life Long Friends At The Lake

There are some friends that walk into your life for a little while and then there are some that last a lifetime .......
When we lived in Arizona we made some amazing friends. It is rare that you find friends that both the husbands and wives click, let alone 4 couples. We moved to Sioux Falls 5 years ago and through the years our friendship has remained strong and continues to grow. One of the couples is now in Sioux Falls with us and the other 2 live in Arizona. This past week they flew in to spend a week at the cabin with us. The last time we were all together was 5 years ago. At that time there was a 3 year old little boy, Caden and Alexa was 1. This time around we had 10 kids 8 and under. Oh how times have changed.

Five years ago we took a picture on the front steps of the cabin. This year we tried to stage the same picture which was quite comical. We got it pretty close. It was so much fun to reminisce and wow look at the improvement on the coloring of the photo. The old yellow coloring made us feel a little aged. We may have aged but life has gotten sweeter for all of us over the past 5 years.

We had such a great time and the kids had so much fun together. Everyone ate, slept and played hard. There will be more pictures to come of our fun-filled week!
