Yesterday was a typical Saturday with DH gone running the roads to the multitude of hockey tournaments and #TeamOlivier up at the crack of dawn. The weather has FINALLY turned nice out so going to the park is more than just something to do in a few months. This morning we were going to the park! As crazy as it might sound, I found the perfect moment to jump in the shower to get ready for the big outing, got everything & everyone lined up to walk out the door and it star to rain. It's a good thing I didn't pre-warn #TeamAmelie that we were going to the park when I got her dressed because there would have been water falling from more than the sky. Let's pretend the plan is going as it should & pack everyone up in the truck for a road trip. I knew that my mom was at a trade show of sorts so why not go check it out. #TeamOlivier slept the whole way there while #TeamAmelie sang me endless renditions of The Wheels on the Bus...this is going not too bad so far!
The trade show being in my hometown of which is fairly small I was prepared to know a few people, but I wasn't prepared for it to be like old homecoming week. I felt like I knew every second person (good and bad)! It was great to see people that I haven't seen in YEARS and some decades ago. I ran into an old elementary school classmate that I haven't seen in almost 20 years and we picked up like it had been mere months. He has got two beautiful children himself (two girls) and a very energetic wife. We chatted as long as our little people would let us and vowed to take care. As I continued around the show I chatted with people from when I was younger, friends of my parents and anyone who gave compliments to #TeamAmelie and #TeamOlivier. These encounters made me feel a little nostalgic and miss my hometown and wonder what people from my childhood were up too. On my drive home (both kids sleeping because it was our normal nap time), I could help but think how cool it would be to have a class reunion soon since it would be 20 years next June that we all went to school together. I don't know how we could pull it off...I'm not friends on Facebook with any of my classmates from elementary school and maybe I'm the only one curious about what everyone else is up to.
Until I can decide if it's something I want to try and coordinate, I am so happy I took the drive yesterday and ran into an old classmate. Wish our children could have grown up together just like we did all those years ago!
Sunshine & happiness today & forever.
