Back in the middle part of June I got a wonderful text from my BFF ( I know I am to old to use that term but if it applies to a friend that you have had since birth...I think it is still OK) She asked if we were going to home June 28-30th. YES!!! YES!!! Does that mean you are coming to see me!!!
You see Ashley (who will be referred to as Bobo from now on) is my oldest and dearest friend!!! We have known each other since she was 2 weeks old and I was born. Yep...she is older...and always will be!!! (your wrong Bobo...that is more fun to say now!!!) We haven't lived in the same town since she left for college but time and distance have not affected our relationship. No matter how far or how long it has been...we will always and forever be family.
Exactly 1 year ago Bobo and Mike brought back Kate from China. I have blogged about Kate's story before but just to catch you up Kate is an answer to prayer in the flesh. I have prayed for this baby for years and she holds a very special place in my heart. Just after they returned from China the Milford family moved to Auburn. (Mike is a professor there...ya he is that COOL!)
Auburn is 14 hours away. That is the farthest we have ever been from each other. I had been checking flights weekly because Shad had promised to fly Emma and I to see them...Then I get the text...They are coming!!!!
Things began to settle down for the evening and Bobo snapped this priceless picture. Henry has fallen in LOVE with June. The 1st night we went out to eat and Henry so wanted to sit by June. We appeased him by letting them sit across from each other. The girls were chatting and playing and Henry kept trying to get in on the conversation. Finally he announced to June that "if a wasp comes June, don't worry I'll kill it" You see to Henry a wasp is the meanest/scariest thing there is! He was declaring his LOVE for June. It was a precious moment.
These 2 are 2 peas in a pod! How cool is it that they have only seen each other a handful of times and still feel like they are best friends.
