Zoe and Lori came over for brunch today (we missed you Shelli!!!). The Petsch~&~J-M families’ friendship goes way back. I just typed “Zoe” into our blog’s search box (on the right side-bar), and up popped a whole slew of memories of some of the fun times we’ve had with the Petsch Crew over the past four years. Obviously we don’t post about everything that we do on the weekends (not even close), and don’t post about every get-together with friends (not even close), but we post about these things often enough that we can see the basic trajectory of some of our family friendships, and it is pretty heart-warming to see. Anyway… back to this morning… we had such a nice time, as always. The kids went nuts playing in a frenzy of non-stop energy, we all had mimosas (what is brunch without mimosas???… kids’ made with sparkling grape juice; parents’ made with the real deal bubbly grape juice), we ate bagels and fruit salad, drank coffee, discovered that Owen and Zoe both like lox, discovered that the parents all have some sort of deep love for coconut macaroons (we ate way too many of them), and generally had a fabulous time. Basically, a perfect Saturday morning.
