Back on New Year’s Eve, Emilie and I went hiking at Brazos Bend State Park. She had camped with her cousins for a few days and I drove up for the morning. The water and park grounds are pretty scenic. Luckily, we didn’t spot any gators. I remember going to this park for several school field trips. It had probably been over 10 years since I had been back. I think we walked around 5 miles just to keep warm. It was freezing!
That afternoon, Kathryn and Robyn met up with us. Mrs. Taylor attempted to take a picture of our coordinating outfits. This was the best of the blurry pictures. You would have thought we planned our matching colors.
We enjoyed some colorful froyo before heading to a local hiking trail.
Emilie didn’t have a jacket, so she made do with Robyn’s new winter gear from Christmas and a thin pom-pom scarf.
None of the girls had been there before and Robyn wasn’t feeling the 2 mile trail with the cold weather. Oh well, we trekked on anyway.
It was great to all be together again and catch up on everyone’s lives. The downside to growing up and getting old is we aren’t all together like we were in grade school. Kathryn is going to have an engagement ring on her finger before we know it. Robyn is almost half way done with graduate school and preparing to intern in Washington D.C. this summer. Emilie is waiting to hear from Occupational Therapy schools. And well me, that’ll come on another blog post! I hope we can start every new year together and celebrate how God has woven our lives together. Happy belated New Year’s!
