Dinner with the Holyoaks

We had a special treat earlier this month. We have friends we have known since our BYU trailer days that were close by for a few days. Trust me this was no small feat since for the last 3 years they have been living in Hong Kong! It wasn't much better before that because they have been living in the Chicago area for years. Thanks to Christmas cards, facebook and blogging we have been able to keep in semi-contact over the years. We haven't actually had a in-person visit for years so you can imagine how fun it was to find out they were going to be in St George.
We set up a night to get together and and went on up. It was fun so fun to catch up with them and pick up where we left off years ago. Some friendships die of natural causes over the years and some seem like no matter how long its been you can jump right back in and enjoy your time together. We have that kind of of a relationship that we just enjoy each others company no matter how long it's been. We hope it doesn't take so long to get together next time. Life will start to slow down I think in the next few years so it shouldn't be so hard. We'll see huh. Maybe we will get to jet over to Hong Kong to visit before they come back!!
