We had a great time tonight eating dinner with friends at a Japanese steakhouse. All of the guys are friends of Derek's through his work, and I have become friends with their wives. It's always a great time when we get together. We laugh A LOT! I told them I would give them a shout out on my blog. Here they are...
From left to right: Jenn, Derek, Me, Tonya, Collin, Chad, Trisha. Derek, Collin and Chad were all in Iraq at the same time. I have to mention that during that time, if there was anyone that helped me get through 15 months of deployment besides my mom, it was Tonya. She is such a sweet girl and the cutest little thing you will ever see! She was there for me so much. Anytime I was down, I could call her and she always understood and helped me get through it. I honestly don't know what I would have done without her during that time. She was and is such a good friend to me. I keep telling her she needs to do a blog because she has two of the cutest children and the funniest stories. Maybe I'll convince her! :)
This is Kevin. He took the group shot, so I had to get one of him. They are laughing so hard because Wongky, the chef, was throwing chicken in the air for Derek to catch it with his mouth. Derek missed, but Tonya and I caught our pieces. Talent I tell you! Oh, and that place was crawling with prom people. They looked so cute in their dresses and tuxedos. It took me back, and it seems like it was yesterday! Styles have changed though...no puffy sleeves as big as your head were found anywhere.
As we passed over the river on the way home, we saw the beautiful moon overlooking the bridge. It was so bright!
Tomorrow we are going to the All Out for Autism Walk. I'm really looking forward to it! I feel like it's a big day for autism awareness and for us. I'll post pictures later. Have a great weekend!
