can you spot an Amelia with blonde hair?
We went to UDA dance camps together in the summer.
gorgeous, aren't we? :)
this is what you get when you "wing it" in the 90's
This is/was the raunchiest group of girls, EVER. We were constantly telling dirty jokes, making fart noises, telling all the sordid details of our high school romances (those of us that had one). But what takes the cake? We decided to give each other dirty names.
We walked out onto the sand to take some pics.
Wet pants and all, Meghan is the dare devil of our group, never afraid to be the first to do something crazy.
Then we decided it was time for another group photo, and we figured we'd pose in front of the Rockaway Beach sign. After several failed attempts to take our own picture, a kind man (we'll call him Mr. Dude) and his wife offered to take one for us.
Thanks to Mr. Dude, some good ones:
And then, in Kiltie style, we had to get a shot of the "goods" too:
This is where Mr. Dude claimed he needed to grab a wide angle lense. His wife smacked him for us :)
We went shopping, ducking into some super cute antique stores. There were food carts all over, so we got some grub which included the infamous elephant ears... Mmm....
Meghan and Andrea taking a break from shopping
Meghan decided she wanted to kiss a fish:
And along the way I found some burried treasure:
Drea and Nikki
After here, we all headed our separate ways. Drea and I went down to the Tillamook Cheese Factory where we tried Squeaky Cheese (what's the big deal?), a smoky cheddar, and ended up buying a Garlic White Cheddar mini loaf. But THAT'S not why you go to the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Everyone knows you go there for their ICE CREAM! Here we are, in all of our glory:
I don't know about the rest of the girls, but this weekend was not long enough as far as I'm concerned. It passed by so quickly, and I wasn't ready to go back home to responsibility and reality. With a weekend full of good friends, good food, drinks, laughter, and reminiscing, I am able to reflect back on this weekend and find myself thankful. Thankful that these girls are in my life, thankful that we've all stayed in contact over the years (I've known Nikki for over 20 years!), and thankful that we all took the initiative to make this weekend happen, and to create memories we'll be talking about for years to come.
Love you girls!
