We have had such a great time over the past few days with friends and family. We were invited over to some dear friends of ours place about 45 minutes north of us on Wednesday night the 3rd. They have 4 girls around our kids' ages, and all 4 of our kids came so we had 12 of us together for dinner and then hanging out with each other afterwards. Nathan and one of their daughters sang and played the piano for a good while which was such a blessing to me - loved listening to them! Nicole loved having girl time with the other girls, and Tim and I enjoyed adult time with the mom and dad. Before dinner the dad took everyone out in the back to shoot at targets. Nicholas especially loved that. I think he felt like he was in a Fortnite game - lol! Anyway, a good time was to be had by all!
Then the next day, on the 4th, we went down to Port Charlotte to see my dad and sister, and actually even spent the night like we used to years ago! It had been a long time since we were all together like that, and Christy's youngest daughter and her husband were there, too, so it felt like a regular family reunion! Unfortunately, we didn't get that many pictures. I don't have any of Noah & Nicholas or my sister or Tim (I promise they were there)! But here is what I did get:
I think it was the first time we were all together like that since my mom passed away 5 years ago! Crazy! I really enjoyed it a lot as we sat outside and watched the sunset and then the fireworks being shot off by the neighbors until it started raining. The next morning we got up and had breakfast and hung around until later in the afternoon. It was really a sweet time! Hoping to have more of those in the not-to-distant future for sure!
