Alpha Sigma Delta Sorority Sisters

Audrey had the day off from school on Friday, and we got together with one of her classmates, Grace Anne, and her mother Aimee.  Aimee is one of the few readers of this blog who doesn't have a blog of her own, but I'm trying to change that.  She makes comments that are funnier than most of my posts, and I even gave her a golden title, but still she resists. 
In the meantime, I'm happy to use the ample material from our get-togethers for my blog.  For our inaugural outing, we met up at the Rainforest Cafe.  I wasn't sure how Audrey would react because sometimes she gets out-of-sorts if she sees someone out of their usual context.  But she was completely fine...after all, she and Grace Anne spend nearly as much time together as she and I do.

Grace Anne is awesome and has all of the characteristics of our favorite autism peeps.  She is beautiful and endearing, and frequently has what I like to call that "Who farted?"-furrowed-brow look on her face, like there is just so much that needs to be figured out.    

Before lunch we put them together in a photo booth.  They chose the tree frog motif, which was appropriate because those two in a photo booth was about the equivalent of a sack of frogs:

After lunch, we hit the mall:
Mauling Build-A-Bears that we didn't buy

You love escalators?  Me too!




Christmas trees in September, the morbidly obese,
and a big bag of red dye #40...ah, the mall
Ta-ta til next time!  AS-Delts Forever!!


  1. Gawd I love those photobooths! I've had more belly rolls and nearly wetting myself times with pictures that came out of them!

    It's nice to see Audrey and Grace having a good time with eachothers company! Must be a relief for you as well to have someone to share "the experience".

  2. I really like the new blog layout...a little jealous too since mine is a little bland. Sounds like they had a blast!

  3. your posts....they make me so proud to be in this elite club of ours!!

  4. Love this post! And awesome time yesterday!
    How bout next time they have the day off school we drop them off at IKEA smalland childcare while wearing helmet-cams?!
    (uh oh...... This is probably how Johnny Knoxville got started)

  5. The two girls are so cute together. It looks like they had a blast!

  6. Tee Hee! The "Who Farted" look. I know it well. It was Owen looks like when he doesn't hear what someone says.

  7. Sounds..and looks... like a great day was had by all!

    Love your new Header!

    xx Jazzy

  8. ..Love the mall picture caption..sometimes just cracks me up..and I wind up worrying about myself...;0

  9. again i am laughing

    yeah escalators. that was one of the first things i thought was bizarre about my son...he would wander off in the mall and be focused on an escalator and spinning in circles near

    and we love the rainforest cafe

  10. Totally cracked up at this post. It looks like Audrey and Grace Ann are BFFs! What I wouldn't have given to know what they talked about amongst themselves...
