Yes, technically, these pictures are “old”, and it would have been much better to have blogged them in August when our 10-year reunion actually took place, but I said that I would share them….and so I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night if I didn’t! ;)
Plus, I thought this idea turned out pretty cute! I wanted something like this to do at the reunion, and knew it would be just a matter of setting my camera up and handing people the remote…so why not?
Not as many hopped in front of the camera as I would have liked, but oh well! I get it…letting your picture be taken by someone else’s camera…and then they get to see them first before you…ha ha. Not some people’s idea of fun.
Melissa and I have been friends since we were babies…it’s the best! I am sometimes sad my kids don’t really have anyone like that they are close to, besides cousins…and for Van, his friend is a girl! Ha ha…not sure if that’s the same. :)
Me and Brad go back to grade nine. I honestly LOVE staying in touch with people and working on friendships…and never letting them drift away! This is probably annoying for most of my friends though! Lol. Brad helped me plan everything…it was nice having someone to bounce ideas off of, and he was even more excited than me about it…we were a great team!
Me and Darin! Also friends since grade nine I’m thinking? :) There were two elementary schools in our small town that were joined in grade five…so it took awhile to get to know everyone from the “other” (not NEAR as cool) school. :)
Most of the “girls” that were there…we were missing some. Tear. But I was so happy these girlies were able to make it!
Jordan and me…friends since kindergarten. :) We used to carpool together…and I was always so jealous of her cute hair. Her mom knew how to dress little girls and do their hair. My mom DID NOT. Lol. Oh well, I’m stronger for it! :) She came over the night before and helped me make these sweet dollar store glasses with pipe cleaners. She made those funny pink ones, so we made her wear them. :)
It was July 16th, 1999…summer night, I was having a party, and up walked Jordan with some friends from Raymond. One of which was Derick. And the REST is history! Ha ha. Don’t worry, I know that I’m a loser. You don’t have to feel sorry for me. I’m okay with this.
The parade. For some reason, I think this was the funnest part for me! I didn’t have to worry about how things were going, I just got to sit and throw candy! I have never thrown candy in a parade, and man can it make a person feel good! Lol! Everyone just cheers and claps for you…so you throw them candy, and they cheer and clap more! :o) Yes, we know our sign says “Gard 2001”. Some of our choice (I don’t say that sarcastically) members of our class spraypainted “Gard 2001” on the grain bins that year…you know, instead of the usual Grad 2001. They did it to be funny…but they had everyone going for a long time that it was an accident. I never believed it though! :) They even made “loser of the week” on the local radio station. Awesome. I’m throwing candy to my family here…don’t worry, I wasn’t the only one standing up on the whole parade like a loser. Ha ha…though that would have been funny!!
