It was fun to see the girls play. It is so crazy how old they are getting. For reals, when I was a senior in high school, the now seniors were in first grade. But man, I would give anything to have been able to play with them. They have some super talented girls on that team. Girls that can jump, hit the ball, pass. It was fun to watch. Unfortunately they lost, but it was still a good time watching them play.
Like I mentioned in my other post. We had our 10-year class reunion that evening. Holy moly, I can't believe it's been that long. I skipped my 5-year reunion, but was glad I was able to make it to this one. I have seen classmates every now and then, but not all of them. We had a great turn out, with only 3 of them not being able to make it.
We met at Buck's aka The Hideout Motel where we had dinner (this was before the varsity game, so I missed the JV volleyball game). It was so good seeing everyone there. I just about cried when I saw all my girl friends from high school. There are only 5 of us, so we were pretty good friends. I haven't really seen Stephanie or Tatum in a very long time, so it was really good seeing them. Some of the guys brought their wives, so it was fun to meet them too. It was seriously like old times. We had loads of fun sitting around talking. Even though our topics were a bit more mature than they once were. Lots of talk about pregnancy and lady parts, and, yeah. That type of stuff. Luckily I was gone for those parts watching volleyball.

One of our schoolmates who is a big time film director now (right, James?) came over and asked if he could ask us some questions and film us. He just asked about Cokeville, and our thoughts on coming back. It was really neat to hear how more mature we are all, while still having a little bit of immaturity that we were used to. I'm not sure what he is planning on doing with that film, but I would love to see it.
After a while we headed to "The J" where one of our classmates was working. It was really good to see him, and to hang out at up there again. Then we headed back to Buck's where we watched some old videos. That was pretty fun. We had a good time laughing and reminiscing.
It was really, really good to see everyone there. It is so funny how things have changed, yet how things still felt the same. I loved our class. We were all pretty good friends for the most part, yet we all had our little fights and things that annoyed us about each other, but that seemed to be all gone. I guess those 10 years gave us time to grow up and get over those things.

Here's how we've changed:
11/14 are married (1 is engaged) (2 are married to each other)
14 kids between the 14 of us - at least 1 more on the way
We live in Utah, Wyoming, Idaho and Colorado
We are engineers, mechanics, welders, computer geeks, managers, tellers, teachers, marines, marijuana growers (he's the one in Colorado....it's legal!), and stay-at-home moms.
We all have way nicer cars than we did back then.
