Danny, Tina, and I attended the Ankeny Hawks class of 1993 class reunion on Friday and Saturday. I was not really looking forward to it at first. The only person I still talk to is Tina from my graduating class. Surprisingly I had a lot of fun! Most of the girls that Tina and I used to run around with showed up at both the Friday and Saturday night festivities. It is actually pretty amazing how we can not see each other for 15 years, and then can fall right back in to talking and laughing and joking with each other like time hadn't really passed too much.
This was my first reunion, and now I see the fascination with such events. It is just priceless to have the chance to reconnect and simply have fun and enjoy each other again. We all have similar backgrounds and stories, and can relate to each others present lives as well.
The first night we just had a casual evening at Benchwarmer's in Ankeny. The second night there was dinner and a band at the Iowa Cub Club in Des Moines. We also escaped to a party bus after a while on Saturday to dance and drive around Des Moines for an hour or so. It was a lot of laughs and good for a few photos. We all decided we wouldn't be as much fun at 38, so why not give it a go... : ) Danny, Tina, and I took a cab back to the Cub Club around 11pm to get home to the kids, which I am sure was a VERY smart decision.
