My friend Mary was in town for a conference, and she had to leave this evening to go back to WI. But she stopped by just in time for dinner. Eric went all out and make brinner, a scrumptious breakfasty dinner. We made banana pancakes, with peanut butter syrup, some eggs, and maple sausages. It was So Good. Good enough for people, and perfect for my friend I've known since freshman year in college. I love her, and miss her terribly, but when we get together it's like old times. So brinner was the perfect choice, even though it wasn't entirely planned that way. We usually get together for brunch when they are in town, since breakfast time is the only time they have available. And that's always been a lot of fun. This was great to do breakfast, our tradition, at dinner time. It was so nice to get caught up.
Sam took this picture of us for me, and it was pretty good. Overall, the boys didn't care too much about boring grownup conversation because Mary didn't bring her daughter to play. I find it funny that my friend's are known by their kids now. But our kids are like cousins to each other, cousins in the bond.
Eric got this one of us for me. She couldn't stay too long, though we did yap for quite a bit, because she was driving home on the night shift. That's rough, I don't think I could have done a long drive alone at night, but she was/is a superchamp, and late hours work well for her, not so much for me. I think I need to go to bed.
