Saying bye to friends

I went to a goodbye party last night for some friends who are leaving New Orleans. It was sad, of course, but also full of laughs.

Especially watching old people my age try to figure out selfie sticks.




Those are all triplet and quad mamas, giving Robin and Bryan a send off before they head out of town.

The Gates moved here about five years ago, as part of the Hornets/Pelicans coaching staff. Thanks to them, the boys got to attend a couple of NBA games, which was pretty awesome.

Their triplets were born quite prematurely, but they’re all healthy four year olds (what?) now, quite a bit bigger than when I photographed them.


Aw, squishes!

Anyway, they’re just great people and hopefully they’ll find themselves in New Orleans again one day.
