Like I mentioned, we took a little road trip yesterday to visit our old neighbors who moved away in August, out into the country 2 hours north of us. The boys and the little girl grew up together, and were best of friends. The tres amigos hadn’t seen each other since August 7 when they left.
I had chatted with the mom and we hashed up a little plan for us to SURPRISE their daughter with a visit! The boys were so excited about being in on this element of surprise. We decided we’d arrive a little before she got home from school, and the boys would be bouncing on the trampoline when she pulled in the driveway (the kids used to spend hours on the trampoline together, so it kind of has a special symbolic meaning. 🙂
