We're beginning new traditions in our family. One is that we're trying to have a meal with each of our children and their particular family once a month.
Oh, don't get me wrong, I love it when we ALL get together, all 16 of us but it is a bit difficult to visit with each other with 8 Grands going here and there and talking and talking!
A few weeks ago we took Anna, Dan, Emma, Kylie, Duncan and Kellan to eat at our now favorite Chinese restaurant, Kami's. We had a great time and for a few moments I thought the restaurant would never be the same but upon our next visit (just Mike and me) it was.
Last night Mike grilled steaks for Bill and Brittany and us. Delicious! We really enjoyed being able to just visit with them since we don't see them very often. They have such busy schedules.
AND "WONDER OF WONDERS, MIRACLE OF MIRACLES" (know where that's from??) Bill was able to upgrade our Blue Ray DVD player!!!! You have NO idea all the trouble, anguish and frustration that Mike had had trying to do this! Come to find out, it was more complicated than the directions led us to believe! (Isn't that usually the case?)
And the perfect ending of our lovely evening, wonderful RAIN! (Thank you Lord!)
Today we meet April, Lee, Christian, Makenna, Elliott, and Camden for lunch at...you guessed it, Kami's! They all love Chinese as much as we do! Hopefully we won't leave quite the mess we left with the younger Grands. You ought to see Kellan feeding himself! When he's done, he likes to throw the rest of his food, wherever! I don't think any of us will do that today!
Come September, we'll do it all over again! :)
