In other news: A layover in Philly

Howdy, friends.

As part of our insane cross-country trip the past two weeks, I paid an extra $400 for a 3-hour layover in Philadelphia so I could see my best friend of 33 years.

Laurie and I met when we were kids growing up in Elyria, Ohio, and haven’t seen each other in four years.

Philip and I and the kids landed, gathered our gear and sprinted out of security to sit in a skyway with Laurie and her daughter, Quinn, and have a quick lunch. It was a weird place to visit, but it didn’t matter. I just wanted to see them.

And we did.

And made poor Philip take about 100 photos. Here are just a few. Note how she is about 5 months pregnant and looks gorgeous and I have on the shirt I slept in, no makeup, and didn’t even wash my face that morning. Ugh.

Me and Laurie. Best friends forever!

Look at that tummy!!!! When you’ve been friends since ages 4 and 5, you are allowed to rub, kiss and make fun of baby bellies all you want.

Jack holds the ice pack next to his ear.
Quinn: What is your brother doing?
Viv: I have no idea. Here, let me comfort you in our time of weirdness. Soon you’ll understand, when you have a sibling.

Jack: Hmm, maybe I’ll ice this little ledge here.
Quinn: :giggle:
Viv: Let’s get out of here. Brothers are weird.

Jack: Oh, I thought you guys thought I was weird. What’s that? Now you want to see this ice pack? Yeah. I’ll bet you do.

Laurie: Just keep smiling, no matter what!
Quinn: Stop squishing me!
Jack: Cheeeese!
Me: Why am I a woman with an Adam’s apple?
Viv: I don’t know these people.

Happy running, reading, photo taking and best friending!
