Rachel & I met in the fifth grade when we were both in our school's drama club. We instantly clicked and became inseparable. We hung out all the time and got ourselves into a ton of trouble. In October 2008, she got married and a week later, I found out I was pregnant. There was a whole lot going on in our lives and sometimes, change brings a lot of stress. We had a falling out and didn't speak for quite a few months. A few months after I found out I was expecting, Rachel discovered she was also pregnant. We reconnected on a Livejournal community that dealt all the fun things that go along with pregnancy. Since then, we have kept in contact and had a few playdates after our daughters were born, but we haven't reached the level of friendship we had earlier in our lives.
I had recently heard about an indoor playground about 20 minutes north of us. I'm constantly looking for new things to do with Aubrey, and she loves the indoor playground at the mall down the street from us so I knew she would have a blast at Bobo's Indoor Playground. I sent Rachel a message on Facebook asking if she would want to take Mackenzie with us sometime soon.. and on Friday, we went and had a blast.
Although we may never be as close as we used to be, I'm glad that we can still get together so our daughters can play and have fun :)
