The Big Girl "Spend the Night" Party


Jane standing L- R Nancy, Trib, Ann, Susan
July has been jam packed. One of the highlights was a "spend the night" party at Lake Eufaula with "the cousins". The cousins are a group of the Roneys that have grown up together. We have shared our lives...the good and the bad...and while time and responsibilities take us apart, we always gravitate back to each other. When we do, we pick up where we left off and share one another's lives. These are the "girls" that have known me forever.

We had a great time talking and laughing. We remembered the good times and touched briefly on the hard and sad times. We had numerous conversations composed of " sentence stems" as we tried to remember names, dates, and particular situations !!! ( Oh you know...uh...uh..I cannot think of her name !!!)
We caught up on each others lives, spouses, and children. We talked recipes, the price of gas, and politics. (By the way, I read in this morning's paper that Michelle Obama and Cindy McCain have discovered the power of pearls as statement accessory pieces...where have they been !!)
We swam....ate...and drank....all on our own schedule !!
We enjoyed each other for the girls we were and the women we are. We left the next morning, each to their own agenda, making plans for another get away just for us cousins.
