"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

Cody's 20th Reunion

(disclaimer- these pictures are all out of order because the upload went haywire!)

Cody graduated highschool in 1992, so this year makes it 20 years. Holy moly! Cody's 10 year reunion was a few weeks before we got married and I remember having so much fun at it. Can't believe it was 10 years ago because NOW...we aren't a cute and fancy free engaged couple, but we are a beaten down, worn out couple with five kids!

Cody went to a super small highschool and I remember when I first learned just HOW small it was, I joked that it was a one room school that doubled as a church on Sundays. There were about 780 people in my graduating class, and only about 85 in his. Huge difference. But whenever I get together with him and his HS frinds, I find myself feeling jealous of the close knit group that they were and still are. I am realizing that the advantages strongly outweigh the disadvatnages of going to a small school. I just love his classmates and I am already excited about the 25 year reunion which is already being planned!

On Friday night, we barely made it into ton in time to drop the kids of with Grandma and Grandpa and head over to the first event of the reunion. Everyone met at the local golf club and there was good food and lots of drinks! Cody and I, of course didn't do any of the latter, but we had a blast mingling and catching up with people. We had so much fun, in fact, that no one wanted the party to end even when they were closing up shop. Everyone moved the party to a different "venue", which happened to be a really fun bar! Yup, Cody and I went to a bar and it was a lot of fun. Again, we didn't drink anything other than Coke, but it was great nonetheless. We saw a tranny and I even got hit on by a guy who thought I was a single lady (while Cody was off getting us drinks). Made my day, even if the guy may ahve been a little drunk.

After getting just a little bit of sleep (because we were out super late) we got up and got ready to go over to the old high school for a "tour". Cody had arranged for the school to be opened up for the class of '92 to have a walk down memory lane. I think that most peopel opted to sleep in after a very late night, because only a handfull of people showed up at the school. It was fun walking through the halls, even though I didn't go to the school. Guess I just really love schools! The kids thought it was so weird and funny that Dad actually went to school and had a locker and ate lunch in a cafeteria. In the afternoon a lot of people met up at the lake for a potluck type cookout. There was a good turnout and again, it was a lot of fun. Have I mentioned that the reunion was a lot of fun? We were so busy visiting that we didn't take many pictures.

We joke that Garrett looks like Patrick Swayze because of his hair.  Couldn't resist takeing his picture by the teacher's sign!
