A lot of people hate facebook. Some refuse to sign up, others complain that it is irritating or pointless. While I can’t disagree that it has become irritating, I certainly don’t think it’s pointless.
Through “facebook stalking” I am able to keep up to date with what old friends are doing in their lives. People that I otherwise would never talk to, I am able to keep in touch with. And people that otherwise would be gone from my life? I’m able to get back in touch with.
On Monday morning, I had the opportunity to see my childhood dance teacher. Phoebe taught me dance for years, and being able to reconnect with her (thanks, facebook!) was fantastic.
We met up at a local playground where Alex and her adorable granddaughter, Mikayla, could enjoy themselves. Mikayla is about three weeks younger than Alex, and oh my goodness the cuteness!
There was swinging:
There were snacks:
There was super-cute piling of sticks:
There was a lot of staring at each other. “Who is this other little person who is more like me than I’m used to being around?”
And there were the mandatory modeling sessions:
I would love to be able to get together with Phoebe again, and I think Alex and Mikayla had a good time playing! Plus, it made for some fun photos of these beautiful subjects.
