Ally and Mandy
Ally flew from Utah on Thursday, to the Phoenix area to be a bridesmaid for her friend Mandy. We drove over yesterday, to attend the wedding reception. We have known her family forever...well, since 1988. It is very likely that we would have gone over for the reception, even if Ally hadn't been able to be there, but her presence sealed the deal.
I took this picture of her when we got there, hours before the party. I told her she looked great, and she said, "It is because they did a good job on my hair and makeup." I had to quickly correct her, "No...I think that it is because I did a good job of giving birth to you!"
It might take ten entries to write all that comes to mind looking at this picture of Ally and Mandy. I wish for time to write all ten right now! This picture was taken in 1988, when they became friends.
Here they are, 20 years later. No less cute....just bigger....
