We've had a good Saturday so far. And it's far from over.
Ben helped the day get off to an especially good start until sleeping until the 7 o'clock hour. We (along with two brothers-in-law, a sister-in-law, two nieces and a nephew) went to my mother-in-law's house for breakfast. It was a delicious, of course.
Then our family of four stayed there visiting with Peggy and John for several hours. We played Rook ...
... and look at my partner's lay-down hand? We didn't win either game, but we kept things interesting.
Cate enjoyed having John to entertain ...
... with a tea party! Apparently make-believe sausage, cookies and soup were involved.
Peggy and Gary, who we miss, were married 34 years ago today. Us grown-up kids and spouses are taking her to celebrate that marriage that is so worth admiring. I'm thankful for the ways they raised three boys, one of whom I love dearly, and the ways they loved each other and everyone around them.
