So did I say that the potluck was a success? Well I guess you could say that! At the end of it all my house was packed, and I mean packed. I counted and there were 43 people in my house, it was extremely crowded but still easy to walk around and visit but it got loud. There was so much food and twice that in desserts. Everyone was here from 2 until about 6 then they started to filter out until the last person left at about 10pm. So 43 people, 8 hours, my feet hurt so bad I could cry, more food than you could imagine, and everyone had a wonderful time.
Unfortunately I forgot about the camera. I had my younger sister take some pictures early on in the evening and then forgot to go back and take more myself so there are only a few that really come out. I don’t have any of Ryan at all. Oh well.
This is me on my swing with my two moms.
This is just a full length picture of the patio so you can see how many people were here. This is only a little less than half of them actually. Since even un pictured there were only 14 people on the patio for this shot!
Of course me standing with my grandpa! This is captain_jdfah who is about to leave on a mission trip to New Mexico. Him and my grandma will be traveling all summer working on small churches and will be updating on their site.
So all in all we had an absolutely wonderful time. I am even honored to have received a request to do this every three months or so so that the family is guaranteed to see each other about four times a year and visit. I would love to since this group leaves my house spotless. All I had to do was straighten a few pillows, vacuum, and run a load of dishes and laundry. And they bring all their own food and take away all their own dishes. Who could ask for a better crowd?
Song of the day? Fun, fun, fun by the Beach Boys. Why? Cause the party was fun, fun, fun! LOL
I am going to try to come around and visit you all I know it has been a few days. Talk to you all soon.
