Like we never left

We went back to C-U this weekend. (By the way, that's Champaign-Urbana, Chambana, or Shampoo Banana, depending on who you ask.) We haven't been back since June last year, and our pals Randy and Karen are moving away, back to Minnesota, so we thought we better go wish them farewell while they were only 3 hours away.

I've got alot of things I want to document about our trip, so I hope to get a chance to do some of that later this week. It was a very busy couple of days, but that made for a good trip. We saw several old friends at the going away party on Friday night. Since we moved away so quick that we didn't get to say goodbye to most people, it was nice to kind of catch up again this weekend. Then there was the birthday party for one gorgeous little cowboy known as Hunter. We felt very honored to be "just friends" and invited to his super big family party on Saturday, though we were WAY outnumbered by all his grandparents, aunts, uncles, and bunches of cute cousins. His parents, Jennifer and Dan, are some of our best friends from C-U, and we've been lucky enough to get to know some of their family over the years too. There was plenty of time between events to just hang out with a few friends too, most importantly this trip were Randy and Karen, of course. Maddy and Gracie were sweet and eager hosts in their home while we chilled and chatted on Saturday.

There were many others that I wanted to see and hoped to connect with, but I just couldn't get it all in. We'll be back in a couple months, so hopefully we'll get to make the rounds then and see some of the friends we missed this time.

I've got lots of pics and a little video to share. Some will be here and some on Braska and Kinlee's pages too. Hopefully I'll get them posted this week.


  1. i'm glad you had a good trip. you never know when you revisit old place. sometimes it can be fun and sometimes you want to get back home asap. haha.

  2. It was so awesome to get to see you guys - I was so glad Muncher could come, too! You totally made our day when you walked through the door! Remember, the whole basement is yours whenever you want. Hope you have a great week - it really was like no time had passed!
