"Even when we are both grandmas in the same knitting club you will still be Miss Wright. It's kinda like the law of gravity, it can't be broken."

Saturdays were invented to be the very best day of the week when you get to sleep in and not do any work and hang out with friends. At least I think that's what they were created for. I got to have a spontaneous lunch with camp girls Emily, Rachel, Amanda, Taylor and Soph. We got to sit around a circle table and eat together just like in the Party Room at Tecumseh. Taylor had just survived the ACT, Rachel's got one more performance of Spec tonight and we were all happy to just hang out for a little bit.

Late this afternoon I picked up Katy P and we headed over to the Vigren house for their annual Ice Party. They live on a cove of Geist Lake and shovel off the snow to make their own rink. Tons of families were over and everyone was outside playing hockey or talking around the fire or making snow angels. Doesn't it just look like so much fun?

Katy and I were pumped to hang out with our friends Demi and Hope-- they're equally fierce and enthusiastic.

Cecilia's friends Maddie, Liza and Lucy were all over too. The eight of us were unstoppable on the rink.

I've always been a huge fan of the Vigren family but I think this was the first time I got to hang out with all three of the girls at once. Demi, Hope and Cecilia have different personalities but they're all confident, kind, fun-loving and joy filled girls.

It was so fun to run around on the ice with Maddie and Katy, two girls I think the world of. Maddie's in 7th grade, Katy's a sophomore, and they are both so much fun.

The game got even more interesting when we made up the rule that you had to sing Hannah Montana while playing. Everyone was belting out the words, dancing to the Hoe Down Throw Down and occasionally remembering to actually play hockey.

Eventually we headed inside to warm up, eat from the Vigren buffet, make bracelets, watch Netflix, wrestle Cecilia and practice our bridges. With so many people running around it was entertaining to say the least.

If Saturdays were created for fun and friends then I think we can safely call today a grand success.
