Keeping up with the Jones'

I have been very blessed in my life to know a few choice people that have become such close friends that time and distance cannot break those friendship bonds.  My friend Cara is one of them.  I met Cara my freshman year at BYU and we quickly latched on to each other.  We were bridesmaids at each others weddings, and have shared joys and heartaches that life has brought.  Although she and her family live in Park City, Utah, we have been able to keep up with each other, through rare visits, our blogs and occasional phone calls.  One of the best things about these types of friends is that even if you haven't spoken to them in years, when you are reunited it is like no time has passed passed and you pick right back up where you left off.  This time when Cara came to visit she brought her whole family.  Even though my boys were turned off at the fact that her two oldest were girls, it was a matter of minutes before they were off playing and laughing together.  They came to see and tour DC, hard-core style.  They went into town four days straight, and passed out each night just to do it all again the next day.  Saturday our family all joined them at Mount Vernon, even Baldwin, on his first big time outing.  Thankfully, he did great and the kids were pretty good along the way.  I am sad that they live all the way across the country but plans are already in the works for us to go visit them in the near future.  It won't come soon enough.
