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.
