My family moved to Barrie when I was in grade 6. Even though I had a couple of skating friends in Barrie that I met at Mariposa in the summers, Sara was my very first friend at Assikinack Public School. We lived on the same street! I think her mom might have forced her to be nice to me at first, but I'm good with that, because Sara soon became my first BFF. Her family became a second family to me - I affectionately called them the Willies... long story. Fast forward over twenty years: We are still in each other's lives - Sara has a beautiful family of her own with two adorable boys that are pretty much the same age as my two girls. Looking at this session helps me realize how blessed I am to have such long-standing friends in my life.
Here is a look at our crazy and fun extended family session at the Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery in Barrie. Sara's boys are too much... I love them. haha
