My friend Tracy (Brooks) Abney from high school drove up from Alabama today with her kids for a visit. I don't think we've seen each other in 7 or 8 years (wow, it makes me feel old to say anything was "7 or 8 years" ago...), but it didn't feel like that at all.

The kids had a great time pulling out every toy in the play room. Then, we made several failed attempts at naps. After lunch we threw the nap idea to the wind and went downtown for some ice cream and shopping. The ice cream went well, the shopping was cut short by overly-tired, overly-hot, overly-sugared children.

After a weepy and sleepy ride home we made several more nap attempts (some successful, some not), then went back downtown to finish off our fun day with some good, old fashioned Mellow Mushroom pizza for dinner.
