We were so fortunate to meet up with some old and good college friends Sunday and Monday. Wow - what a blessing to be with such dear friends. We met up with Sara and Aaron near Indiana Dunes State Park. The Franzen's live in St. Louis, MO these last 3 years as they're both in school there. We had the opportunity of seeing them this last summer on our way mid-west from CO. I'm glad that we've finally gotten to see them again, as they are the closest CO friends within 1000 miles of us!
We just talked and camped and ate and wined Sunday into the evening. on Monday we went to the beach of lake Michigan, which was really beautiful. I thought that it was much nicer than our little beach of lake Michigan in Waukegan. It was quite strenuous for me to hobble on the sand in my crutches, but once i was in my chair, i just got to enjoy the view, my book, and watching friends in the water.
We just recently purchased a new tent and got to use it for the first time this trip - that was fun!

Duvick LOVED the beach!
Duvi's swollen eye - he dug up a yellow-jacket nest and he and landon had a heck of a time running away from those lil' stingers.
Mostly, we were just so blessed by our friendship with Aaron and Sara. It's amazing to get to be with those that you know and love who know and love you. I know you all know this - it's just a rare thing for us these days.
