Old Friends: Trawick College Visit

Our old friends Ben and Amy and their kids Hannah and Duncan came to visit us this weekend. As I've mentioned before, they are our oldest couple friends, and we've known them since before they reproduced.

Then they had Hannah. Look how cute and little she is!

Brace yourself. The reason they were visiting this weekend is because they are doing college visits for that tiny little girl there.

I know. It's way, way early. I mean, she's not even in kindergarten yet! And I don't have any grey hair and still wear a size 6. And Duncan isn't around yet, and certainly hasn't grown three feet since we saw him and now sounds like a young man instead of a little boy.

Good lord.

Anyway. These old friends brought their almost-grown children to stay for the weekend and visit the UNCW campus as part of Hannah's rounds.

Poor Hannah. I have no idea what Pootie is doing.

Our good friend Beth led us on a tour of the campus - she works at UNCW and knows it like the back of her hand.

See how tall Duncan is? Good grief.

In between touring the campus, of course we ate. This crew is marvelously non-picky. And because we've known them forever, meals are always a laid-back affair. Nothing fancy, just feed everyone and concentrate on visiting. The weather was perfect, and we were able to eat outside and then have a fire afterwards.

Friday Night:
Cheese and crackers
Cocktails (for the grownups)

Two Roasted Chickens
Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Salad (thanks, Pootie)


Campus Tour

Saturday Night:
Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Chile and Cayenne
Salad (thanks, Ben)

We had a wonderful time, and are so glad they came.

Ain't touchin' it. Wouldn't even know where to start. The big stuff in life seems to make you want to do a victory dance and break down and cry at the same time.

It only gets better. Thanks for your hospitality and friendship. And for hundreds of meals across the years!
