My family sees each other a lot during "lake season" (May-October) and then at the holidays but then there is a big lull where we don't see to much of one another. We gather individually but it is rare that the whole group gets together. With my dad leaving for Turkey in a few weeks and my sister and brother in-law working most Sundays, I took yesterday as a chance to bring back the old Sunday Family Dinners. I invited the entire family over and by some miracle they ALL came :) We did a pot luck meal and feasted on homemade bruschetta, lasagna, homemade pizza rolls, strawberry salad, corona (my dad's contribution ;)) and "Pinkalicious Cupcakes".
This was our first event with a kids table and G and Z sat together at his little table. The conversation coming from that table was priceless....I so wish I had pictures and video!!! G kept making sure that we were all still there (she couldn't see everyone) and would call out names every once and awhile. It was so cute :)
After dinner we gathered round the Wii (not sure what my Noni would have thought of this) and played a little Rockband with the kids. G sang Love Story by Taylor Swift and Z rocked out to Rio and Sweet Home Alabama :) We had some great food, shared a lot of laughs and it was a nice family moment. I am not sure when the next family moment will be but I do hope that in the future we can have more Sunday Family Dinners....at least one a year :)
