I’m having fun with my mom and sisters this evening. It’s a pre-mother’s day get together that has included soup dinners from Panera, lots of chatting, a game of dominoes and laughter that brought tears to our eyes and made us unable to catch our breath. We’ve all taken a vow of silence concerning what started the hilarity.
We are still playing dominoes and laughing, at 11:30 pm, enjoying this time together. So here are a few pics from the ongoing party. We may giggle well into the night.
My family likes to have fun! Tonight we celebrated this fact by gathering for a game night at the house of my sister Linda. Elissa ordered pizza, I brought snacks, Josh and Nate grabbed sodas. It was game night with a party atmosphere!
We played a family favorite, Apples to Apples. I happened to win that fun game, while my mom and young great-niece London played Candy Land and Labrynth. When London moved to the playroom, we played a rowdy and fast-paced game of Heads Up, which was new to me. Using an app on the phone, the game is played by dividing into teams and taking turns getting a team member to guess the word or phrase on the phone, which is held in front of his or her forehead. We laughed. A lot!
I’ll let the pics tell the story of the evening. Shared food, shared fun, family time at its best. We will gather again soon, and hope son Nate and his family can join us, and grandson Jonathan too!
