Tigers, Tigers, Burning Bright.

Taylor and a crew of his Princeton swim team friends blew in last weekend for a teammate’s wedding and a thirty-six hour reunion. It was so great to have them all here!

They all go way back – here’s a photo I found from freshman year:

Hoagie Haven?

Hard to believe they are all grown up and on the wedding circuit now. Although I guess grown up is a relative term…

First order of business after most of them arrived on Friday afternoon was a run over to More Mesa:

L to R: Claire, Will, Easton, Ming, Doug, Steve and Dan.

When Taylor arrived late Friday night the traditional welcome-home spaghetti feed commenced:

These kids are serious about their workouts:

Thanks for sending this pic, Ming!

Taylor and Bern swam while the others went for another run. Rob would be proud, right?

Phyllis stopped by with a batch of her homemade sweet rolls, which were much appreciated after all that exercise:

They made friends with all the pets:

They all cleaned up nicely for the wedding on Saturday afternoon:

Too bad Ming couldn’t take Soho along to accessorize her gorgeous red dress:

They came home long after we had gone to sleep that night, but I heard they all had a pretty good time. Taylor shared this photo with me of Will, Easton and Ming conked out in his room late that night:

Will can claim jet lag, but Ming and Easton will need a different excuse...

Dana, you were missed!

Taylor was the last to arrive and the first to leave. It was still dark out when we took him to the airport Sunday morning.

Bye, Tay Tay! See you soon in NYC!!

Too early for us!

We so enjoyed having them all here, brief as it was. Hope they come back soon!
