Favourite things Friday

Good morning all to this glorious Friday which means I get to share a favourite with you and link up to SHAY over at Quilting in my Pyjamas. Hopefully this week I will remember to actually link up (senior moment).
Last night I went to dinner with my Son & Daughter-in-law and my youngest little Grandboy. The purpose of our meal out was to meet up with my Son's childhood friend who now lives interstate.
My son is on the left. They have been mates since they were 9 years old. They played for many years in the same footy team, held fierce backyard cricket matches, had sleepovers, ate each other's mother's pantry down to the linings, went to High School together and even though they lived in different States were in each others Wedding party. They still keep in touch and we quite often get invited along which I think is wonderful.
I have loved being able to see the two of them grow into such wonderful young men and become loving husbands and fathers. I also have to admit to wondering where the time has gone as it feels like it was just yesterday that they were tearing through my house tormenting and teasing my daughter at every possible opportunity and recreating every major football event in our front yard. Great rivalry still exists between them as they follow different teams. Because his friends family came from NSW his friend has always barracked for the Blues so you can imagine the banter around State of Origin time. Their friendship is a credit to both of them.
The other lovely part of the evening was spending it with this little cutie pie. The photo is a tad blurry as Nanna is a bit slow on the uptake in catching a fast moving youngman in an action shot.
So that is my favourite this week.... Family and Friends who just feel like Family.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. We are housebound this weekend (on call). Our country trips are curtailed for a bit.

  5. Fabulous post. I agree it's tricky to get photos of little ones who don't keep still. My camera has a big delay so a lot of my photos of grandies are blurry.

    That little grand is sooo sweet and, yep, at that age, it's hard to get a good clear photo. :))
