Fun Dinner Party
I also invited Sharon who has been our friend forever and used to live near us in California. By chance we now live really close to each other again. Sharon just came back from serving a mission in Mississippi about a month or so ago. She worked in the church employment center and was also lucky enough to go out on splits with the young sister missionaries. She absolutely loved her mission. Sharon was Relief Society President when John was the Bishop. Our children were great friends together. In fact our two daughters Lana and Lana were the bestest of friends. They even had some matching clothes. Those two girls had a great time together. Each week they would go to the library together and each girl would choose many books (at least 10). Then in the middle of the week they would meet on the corner half way between our houses and sit on the curb and exchange books and talk and talk. They were inseparable for many years. Our Michael and their Greg spent many hours hiking, fishing, hunting, working, taking care of dogs, dating, and hanging out together. Those two boys also liked to play tricks on me quite often and each time I fell for their stories.
When all of our children were young they loved playing together. When they became teen-agers there was one day that her 2 boys and my daughter Lana needed to go to the store for us. I later found out that Richard put Lana in a shopping cart and strolled her through the parking lot and the store. They were teen-agers and thought that was sooooo funny.
