[day forty-two ]


Today two great friends played their way through Busch Gardens, and a favorite summer tradition lived on.

Ruby and Grace have known each other their whole lives.  Ruby’s mom, Jenny, and I, taught fourth grade together, and we were pregnant at the same time.  Needless to say, our teammates were saints.  The girls are just 6 months apart, and then went to the same day care together from the ages of 3 months – 4 years.  Now they attend different schools, but we have managed to maintain the tradition of a day trip to Busch Gardens, and I’m not sure if the girls or the moms have more fun.

This year, we have graduated to enjoying the benches with over head fans while the girls bounce back and forth between the pirate ship and the carpet ride, which is decidedly more pleasant for the moms.  And the girls enjoy taunting us about what wimps we are.  It’s a win win.
