Diana and I met on-line while we were awaiting referral for our daughters. Neither of us had blogs back then...we got to know one another through RQ, our Yahoo LID group and e-mails. Over the years, our friendship has grown so much. She has become one of my closest friends and it is amazing how similar our likes, dislikes and values are. I love her like a sister and feel so blessed by her friendship.

Last summer, our family visited them at their lake house in MN. You can read about it here and here.

Enjoying a margarita at one of our favorite cantinas!

We had a great time during her short visit...we took photos (of course) ate a lot, drank a little, shopped, relaxed at a day spa and we never ran out of things to talk about. We also got to watch Harry play in his playoff games. Of course, were late to one of his games and he scored another home run!!!

Di took some great photos during the games...


Yes!

The players earn stickers for the offensive and defensive plays.
