Time with Old Friends

We had a nice afternoon today. We met Emmers and Paul for lunch! It has been such a long time since we have seen them. Emails just don't do our friendship justice. Neither do our sporadic phone calls. But today, we got to sit down, for hours catching up.

Turns out, Emmers and Paul are moving back. It has been about 3 years since they moved to Florida. A long 3 years! But they have decided to move back home. Paul is going to work for J. And Lola is helping Emmers get a job. We are all so excited! They are also going to be living in one of J's houses. That means just down the road from us. A couple of miles.

Lunch was amazing. We went to La Posta. One of our favorites around town. Lauren was over the moon excited about the birds. I have to admit, that is one of my favorite things about the restaurant too! She also had such a good time coloring. Emmers and Paul bought Lauren a bag of goodies. Coloring books, crayons, some hair bows, a teddy bear, and a new pony. She was so excited!

We spent a good 3 hours at the restaurant. Then another hour browsing a jewelry store that is connected to the restaurant. There are a few shops that are on your way out. Paul bought Emmers a pretty silver necklace. And Billy bought me and Lauren matching silver bracelets. All the jewelry in that shop was just gorgeous!

The 5 of us made it back to our house. Were we just relaxed, ate some chocolate cake, and eventually played in Lauren's Little Pink Playhouse. She had Billy and Paul in big pink hats and boas. Emmers and I got to play baby dolls with Lauren. It was a nice afternoon. One to remember. We just love spending time with all of our friends!
