Is about how old I feel but in actuality it's how long I've been out of high school.
Hard to believe I know.
So our class held it's 20 year reunion on August first. I wanted to lose about 50 pounds before then but that didn't happen. And it was okay.
It started out in the afternoon with a barbecue held up behind our high school. It was for families and they had bouncy houses and inflatables and water for the kids. There were hamburgers and hot dogs to munch on and good friends that I hadn't seen for years to talk with.
As we were first walking up to the place Tyran looks at me and says "Do you recognize anyone?" There were people there but I was having a hard time placing names with faces. In fact I had one classmate that came up to me and said "I know you!" and I had to say "I'm sorry you're going to have to tell me your name!" Once she told me her name I could totally see who it was but I felt terrible!! She was at the afternoon barbecue but she didn't come to the dinner later on that night and I hope it wasn't because I was such an idiot.
It was really fun to see everyone and fun to see their kids as well.
Then later that night we had a dinner just for the adults. It was very nice. They had name "tags" that had our pictures from our Senior year along with our names and they hung them around our necks with lovely blue lanyards that had "Vikings" on them. I loved them having our Senior pics so you could look and see how much people had or hadn't changed.
They also had our Class Photo blown up and hanging on the wall. Here are me and Ty pointing out our 20 year younger selves....
That was fabulous seeing all the big hair and the mullets. Sweet.
They had a slide show of pictures from high school and they also had a great live band. Two guys in our class played in it on the drums and the guitar. Very cool.
We stayed around for awhile. We didn't close out the party. There were those that did though and I heard it was much fun but I am old. And we had 9 a.m. church in the morning. Here is a picture that they took from the balcony of everyone that was there. I'm in the blue shirt in the center.
I'm looking forward to the next one in how every many years we have it.
