It is so cool to have someone that you just remain good friends with, even with distance and time. My friend is originally from Holland and lived in Canada during my last year of high school. She has two teenage kids and they were laughing at our high school memories. They were also shocked at how long ago that was - 27 years! *gulp* My friend came to my wedding 20 years ago and has been back to visit a few times in between. I have been very negligent in visiting her, but I think our next trip will be to Sweden - 2021 maybe?
Her daughter rides and is a jumper, so we of course hit up a local horse show! Our biggest local equestrian park just happened to be starting day 1 of a two week CSI 3* international show, so we went over and toured around for a couple of hours. It was kinda hot and gross, so we didn't make it too long. It is even cooler in Sweden than here, so they aren't used to the heat.

We then watched a few hunter rounds and called it a day. The pool and some adult beverages (for the adults, of course!) were calling.
