IBC Reunion

In the last 15 years, our class of people from church have gotten together to reminisce. It was really just any of the girls in our group of friends that could come. Over the years, it grew to guys also (just because we married a couple of them, ha ha). Well, we started having kids and those get togethers slowed to nothing. Four years ago was the last time we've all gotten together. I called up my friend Tanna and said, "We really need to get together again." She said, " I was just thinking the same thing the other day! I can get a bounce house and we can have it at my house.." then we decided on a date, and put an invitation out of Facebook. Then, we decided to spread the word to any other youth that might like to come. Then, we decided to spread the word to any of our leaders, Sunday school teachers, parents, or D-Now host homes that wanted to come. Within minutes, the invite spread to over 90 people! We've decided to make this either a yearly or semi-yearly get together. Next time, though, we will spread the word a little better. I think there are alot of people who don't check their invites and didn't even realize we had this today...as I saw 57 people who still hadn't RSVPd. I say this because those of you who are reading this and don't know why you didn't know about this, it's probably because I didn't make sure to call you up and talk to you after I hadn't heard from you. Let me know if you'd like to be on the next invite list and we will make sure to give you the details!
 
Anyway, it was an absolutely gorgeous day today. We had SOOO many kiddos there, it was so wonderful to see how families have grown and see us all as parents. Such a wonderful time of togetherness!
 
Tanna, I am borrowing pictures from your Facebook page!
 
This was me after looking in Brittany's scrapbook album about pictures of us in middle or high school in our bikinis. Yeah, I am so glad we didn't have social networking sites back in those days and that they are safely tucked in the confines of her house.
 
 
Everyone who came

 


 
We tried to get the to put their arms around each other, like we did. But, to no avail.

 
I only posted pictures that had Jason or I in them. I am going to try and set up a Facebook account that has them all in there where they are easily accessible.
