Foto Friday--A Waltz Down Memory Lane

Another milestone in my life.

Eighteen years ago, the Dentons moved to Arizona, and on our first Sunday in our new ward, I met Karen. (For more of the back story on our forever friendship, click here.) I was barely pregnant with Ben and she was toting around infant Logan at the time.
 Ben-thirteen months, Logan 24 months
Ages four and three
These six monkeys grew up more like siblings than friends.
Dallin--ghost, Brenn--ballerina, Heidi--angel, Tucker--bat, Logan--Spiderman, Ben--Robin
On Wednesday, Logan left for his LDS mission to Leeds, England.  Where has the time gone?
 Tucker and Dallin are returned missionaries now, embarking on their grown-up lives.

 Two years from now, when Logan returns home, Tucker will be an old married man.  Dallin will be two years closer to being an accountant, and Ben will be serving his mission somewhere in the world.
 Is that really possible?

 We had to include Brenn in the excitement, even if Heidi couldn't be there.
Where has the time gone?  They should still be fighting over light sabers and legos, playing princesses and Batman guys, and making endless crafts.

Good luck, Ogie.  To me, you'll always be that little boy who was too afraid to step over the threshold into my back yard.


  1. You made me cry! again! I cannot believe how the time has flown! It was fun to have Ben hanging around for the last few days.

    Thanks for taking me up on friendship! Have fun in Idaho with those adorable grandchildren!

  2. I'm digging Tucker's facial hair. May he never shave.

  3. Those are some great memories!

  4. How fun to have these photos, hope you get to take another full set when Ben is home.

  5. I was an ice skater, Kristi Yamaguchi, to be precise, thankyouverymuch. ;)

  6. Brenn! I was just about to say the exact same thing! So funny. :)

  7. love the long lasting friendship.

    1. Whatever information to be shared it is also good to stay open to it. |
