Hold a true friend with both your hands.
Nigerian Proverb

I had a busy, busy weekend shared with two of my closest friends. RaeAnna arrived on Thursday night and then much to her surprise we were joined by Ashley on Friday morning! RaeAnna had no idea we cooked up Ashley's surprise.

Picking up Ashley at the airport - surprise!

After we left the airport we drove out to the Meramac Caverns
(per RaeAnna's request) for a tour.

Very cool caves!

...but the whole thing was a little hokey.

On Saturday, RaeAnna's 25th birthday, we did a whirlwind St. Louis tour. Beginning with the Soulard Farmers Market and then Anheuser-Busch.

Then to the Arch.

We enjoyed a birthday dinner at Cafe Napoli in Clayton.

The group - Ashley, me, RaeAnna and Sarah

On Sunday we relaxed at the community pool and then made a stop at Ted Drewes. Yum!

On Sunday evening we enjoyed the beautiful weather outside with Mexican food.

I am so lucky to have such lovely friends - we had fun!

What a great time! You are a good friend to be able to pull off a surprise like that. How did you get her to the airport? I bet Nick LOVED having all those gorgeous women around all weekend!
