Another awesome Friday night gathering where all the kids get along (tonight there were 15!), the adults get along and have an amazingly fun time (tonight included shots of fireball whiskey, cigars, and stories about tattoos and piercings), and reluctantly leaving just before 11pm. I can cry just thinking about leaving…
Friends invited us over for dinner tonight along with four other families we’re close to (for a total of 10 adults and 13 kids). There was lots of good food, wine, and stories (and all the kids get along) and it was all so much fun that one friend suggested we do this once a month at different houses (they’re also helping me get my friend fixes in before we leave this summer). So, we all decided then and there to do every third Friday…but we needed a fun name. They were suggesting tame things like FUN FRIDAYS or FUN FRIENDS FRIDAYS but I just went straight for F%@# IT FRIDAYS and they all loved it. (It also kind of fit our mood for the upcoming inauguration.)
I do not want to leave these people.
Me and Heather, the hostess with the mostess.
The White Elephant gift of the salmon plank has a long and sordid history. It should end sometime in 2019 or maybe slightly before.
The whole group!
The kids got to make their own fruit skewers at playgroup today!
We’re still doing our approximately monthly dinners—and tonight was #4! We had two sets of friends on their second appearance…and one newbie couple (neighbors)! It was a bit crazy as the kids outnumbered the adults (just barely) but it was fun as usual!
A t-ball mom that I’ve come to know (and really like) invited me to her GNO at a local wine shop. I met a bunch of new ladies, had some delicious food, and had a good time! This was the picture the host had taken with her camera. My friend, Kate, is the blonde to my left.
I finally remembered to take a picture of our group at dinner. Tonight we had my good friend Ruth (and her daughter Emily) who came down from Maryland, Frank and Beth (and their two girls) who have attended before, and a t-ball mom Kate (and her daughter) that I befriended recently (unfortunately, her husband had to stay home with their three boys because their behavior had been lacking).
Owen was at our table because we had extra seats and the kids table was filled with four girls.
Of course, it had started storming terribly at the exact moment Tom needed to be out grilling, but I had the foresight to have him put up our old umbrella so he didn’t get completely soaked.
We all had an amazing time with lots of laughs and can’t wait to do it again!!
