Old Friends

It's always hard to see friends move away.

But it's fun when they come back to visit!

Greg and Nicolle are in town and we've already had two fun events with them.

1. Sprayground

As I mentioned before, it has been unseasonably cool here. I was a little afraid to take my kids to the sprayground. I could foresee lots of chattery teeth and purple lips. But the weather cooperated perfectly and we had a great time with our friends.

So many girls running around!
The boys were outnumbered BY FAR.

I'm so glad Brandon is a good sport.
He let SJ soak him.
And she loved every minute.

2. Flag Football

Greg got all the "old guys" together for a morning of flag football.  I loved practicing my sport photography skills with those guys. Plus, they were short on people this time, so I even got to take a couple turns as quarterback. I might have thrown for touchdowns on two of my three possessions...don't ask me about the one that didn't score. 

Here are some of my favorite pics.

I liked taking pictures in 70 degree weather much better than the freezing turkey bowl every year. Such a fun morning with friends. And there were no injuries! Just two blown-out cleats. Not bad for our aging bodies.


  1. Great action shots! Looks like a lot of fun.

  2. A 'sprayground' is that something you made up or does everyone in NC call them that? We call them 'splash pads', but I like sprayground a lot better.

  3. I didn't see SJ spraying B... so funny and I'm so glad you caught it in a photo. :) It was great seeing you guys!
