I've been lucky to have friends who have children (specifically sons) who are around the same age as Noah. As the boys have gotten older, we have been able to schedule more activities for them. We have met for play dates and most recently went to Barnes and Noble for story time.
While we were at the crazy Chick Fila a few Saturdays ago my friend Jenna just blurted out "The boys need to have a pact, you know like the Traveling Pants so they can always be best friends!". For those of you who are unsure about what she is talking about, she is referring to the movie "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants".
The books and movies are about a pair of jeans that magically fit 4 different girls who are all different sizes. They are all connected to each other by the jeans and the books/movies document how they are growing up but still staying connected to each other.
So, after Jenna's comment it had me thinking how cute it would be if Alton, Noah and Gabe stayed friends forever. For now it's easy, they have no choice but to hang out with each other because we make all their decisions (and Noah just thinks Alton and "Baby Gabe" are about just as cool as his older cousin RJ).
Time will only tell if they will have a pact as strong as those traveling pants, but in the mean time they are enjoying each other and the cool things their Mommy's do with them!
