Til we meet again!

We moved to St. George the week before Brooke started 1st grade. The first day of school she made a new friend, Mairead. She had also just moved here. Lucky for us she had a younger brother, John. The kids became fast friends and have stayed friends.

We just learned that John and Mairead are moving. We are so sad. So I took the kids to the splash pad to play. Some where I have a picture of them playing at this same splash pad many years ago.

They are the kind of friends that can get together for hours and there aren't any squabbles and not once do they say to me "we're bored". The girls even entertain the boys.

We will miss them terribly!

There must have been something int he water at this splash pad, because it made the girls very silly! So then the boys joined in and entertained themselves for another half hour!

On a side note...when I look at these pictures I am struck again at how beautiful it is here. Really...I get to sit at the park while the kids play and enjoy this amazing view!

I know we are super lucky to live here. Brooks swim suit is so cute, I am sorry her friend is moving. It's also hard on the parents when a good friend of their kids moves :(

What a bummer! I agree the view is awesome.

I was thinking how beautiful those pictures are too! I love the red rocks. I had a bff here in Vegas growing up and when we were 12 she moved to Memphis. We stayed in contact and visited each other over the years, even went to college together... then I got to move to Memphis! It was so fun to see you for the wedding and thank you thank you for helping and loving my babies! I love your "smiley" eyes!

It's always sad when good friends move away. I'm sorry. I miss that St. George view at times. It's a really beautiful area and at least I got to enjoy it every day for 3 years. How's everything going for you??
