To say that we are close would be an understatement. I officiated at Robin and George's wedding, and was present at the birth of both children. When the kids were younger, I would go to their house after work a couple times a week to see them and hang out talking writing, spirituality, and everything else under the sun with Robin.
A couple of years ago, they moved about 45 minutes away, to be closer to George's then job. It was a great move for them, but we don't get to see each other nearly as often as we used to. I miss them. Which is why it was such a great treat to spend an hour and a half hanging out together yesterday, after Robin and the kids came into town for a workshop.
We knew the kids would be tired and wired after a long morning, so we decided to meet at the library, where Robin and I could talk while the kids read and played. Also, Robin used to work there, so she could see her old pals. And, well, there were BOOKS.
As you can see from the pictures, we had a great time. Library + wonderful kids + Robin + Aunt Debbie = a Great Day. I hope we can do it again soon.
