"People let me tell you 'bout my best friend{s).."

Do you remember where that song is from?  Yep, The Courtship of Eddie's Father..

..from..forever ago..geesh..some of you probably have never even heard of that, huh?  ..

But it's the song I had running through my head when Brandi uploaded these pictures of Ella and her 2 best friends....Rafaela & her brother, Diego..

Aren't they sweet?

Yeeeah..not all the time..

But they had such a great time in the park running...


.. and jumping...


..and my favorite, climbing trees...






 I used to love climbing trees when I was a kid..there was one in our backyard in Tucson, and I'd go up and just ...sit ..and look around at the world.

Mother used to call me..and I'd just be quiet.  She never thought to look...up!









 {She's just a blur of motion..}


When I look at these..I hope these 3 can remain friends throughout school.  They all go to the public school about 2 blocks from where they all live and it's a beautiful, brand new, state of the art elementary school.










 How great to share such open giggles?!



Yep..beautiful flowers, beautiful children..beautiful friendship..



...complete goofies...


{this will be one to show them when they are all about 16...hee hee hee {insert evil laugh..}

Have a simply giggly Friday, OK?

How sweet! I enjoyed your photos!
I have friends that I've known and keep in contact with since childhood..well, about 8th grade. My children have childhood friends also. It's so much fun to get together and reminisce about the 'olden' days.

Precious pictures of such cute kids. How lucky they are to have each other as friends. (I will work on keeping my mouth closed when I sleep. Thanks for the tip. I don't want those grumpies taking possession.) Have a great Mother's Day.

Courtship of Eddie's Father was one of my favorite shows, I loved Bill Bixby. Can you hear me singing the theme song?!

Precious! I loved climbing trees too; until that time I fell out of one and broke my arm (made a great story since I stayed overnight at a psych hospital where my Mom worked).
Happy Mother's Day!
Best,
Colleen
