Summer's Just Grand

June 25, 2011

One of the best things about summer is having more time to hang out with friends and family. Our local mall puts on a Rock The Mall concert series during the summer months, where families can come out and sing and dance to free concerts featuring local bands. Thursday's band was Midnight Run, a Journey cover band. Being a good 80's-bred mom, my kids have all been raised on Journey. We packed up the lawn chairs and drinks and snacks, and I texted some girlfriends to come and join us. As we sat around immersed in the sounds of pseudo-Steve Perry, watching our kids play and dance and giggle, it occurred to us that two of our kids are exactly the same age now as we all were when we first joined the high school marching band and all became friends. It was a very weird and somehow very satisfying deja vu sort of a moment.
