Saturday was a bittersweet night for us, as we went to a going away party for our dear friends, Michelle and Shawn of the Swat Team. They are relocating to Canada so that Shawn can help take over the family business. We are going to miss our friends terribly; their son Jack and Atticus are best buddies, and we have betrothed our youngest duo, whom Mel so appropriately dubbed, "Wyloma."
Some tears were shed at the party, but as with our group of friends, it was mostly nonstop laughter. In a move unusual for me, I remembered both to bring my camera and have Cliff take photos! Shelly has been known to snatch away digital cameras to delete unflattering shots of herself (yes, she did this to mine one night at dinner, but as Michelle B. said, I wouldn't want to take her on, so I just let her delete away, lol!). So, I made certain that Cliff immediately hid our camera, and now I have ALL the photos from the evening, both the good and the bad (evil cackle!).
Inspired by Miss Shelly, I've created a photo slide show to honor my dear friend (and yes, my dear, I did keep the really bads one out):
