Wordful Wednesday-Best Friends

*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo(s) but that just can’t seem keep our mouths shut about it(them). If you’d like to play along, post a photo on your blog, and let the words roll. Feel free to “capture” my 7 Clown Circus button on the left to link back to me, and be sure to add yourself to Mr. Linky. Thanks for playing along!

One of the hardest parts about leaving Oregon for all of us was leaving friends behind.

Emma, especially had a hard time saying goodbye, so when one of her best friends from the neighborhood came to California on vacation, we jumped at the chance to visit.

How sweet it was to witness their joyous reunion.

I think some friendships are meant to last forever.

    aww – that is super sweet – I want to move just to visit old friends!! (I am serious about moving – I so want to move to CA!!)

    That is so cool they got to visit not long after having to say goodbye. I do hope they’re friends for life, it sure is doable. I wonder at their age, do they write letters now that email is such a big thing. I used to love writing actual letters to all my friends!

    I was 14 when we moved away from my childhood home. I still remember the first reunion with long lost friends after the move. Great pic and I hope your daughter carries that feeling with her for a long time.

    They are so cute. They look very happy together.

    This is my first time participating in your WW meme. Thanks for offering this for us. I thought I was the only one who couldn’t keep my WW posts Wordless. I made a title for my WW’s that says, “Mostly Wordless Wednesday,” for that reason. hehe

    I moved a lot when I was little. It was REALLY hard for me to leave my friends. Friends are everything at that young age! But you always cherish the memories.
