Go Big Blue!

A few weeks ago we attended John's 20th High School Reunion. (I still find it hard to believe that it has been that long) After a few disappointing experiences with my high school reunions, we almost didn't attend. I am so glad we did though because both of us ended up having a really great time.

The organizers did a spectacular job. They had a section for us at the pep rally, a great happy hour and football event for Friday night, a family picnic Saturday afternoon and a nice semi-formal event Saturday night. Even though the Vikings lost in the cross-town showdown, we had a great time. The picnic was so much fun with great activities for the kids including a train, bouncy thing, sand art and pinatas. Lindsey even had a little male suitor chasing her around. He would come over and touch her and just giggle. So cute...but hands off buddy! It was fun to get dressed up a bit for the evening event since my normal uniform is jeans and t-shirt these days.

Just a few thoughts on pep rally's. I went to a school that had little school spirit, a band that consisted of about 12 people and a football team that lost almost every game. Therefore, I had some preconceived notions about pep rallys. Bryan knows how to do it! The band was so loud, the kids were screaming and crazy excited, it was fun to see. You could tell all of us old folks though as we gasped when some of the cheerleaders did a few of their moves. Wow, we certainly didn't do those sort of things when we were their age, did we? ;)

Pregnancy Does Not Cloud the Brain...Ha-Ha-Ha

I recently had a conversation with a friend of mine who is pregnant. We had a little chuckle over some of the things that happen to pregnant women. So, when I read this article I had to laugh.

I am all for girl power and I really believe that we are the stronger sex where it is really important, but I think that the researcher has not had children. I believe that our mind shuts down to non-important things like how we usually drink our coffee, whether our clothes are on inside out and if we only managed to get mascara on one eye that morning since we are growing a little life in us and we must prepare for the challenging days ahead of motherhood. Maybe I am just crazy and only my friend and I have experienced the "Duhs" of pregnancy...but I doubt it!
