Family Day

Yesterday was one of those nice family days that I appreciate. Most days are busy and full of daily obligations, so it's nice when a change of pace comes along. Father and I, along with Hugger, Teenager, Whistle, and granddaughters C. and E, drove to the bigger city to visit children and attend a baby shower for yet-to-be-named-granddaughter-due-in-January. We had a nice taco soup lunch at George and Liz's house, and a visit with Ben and Julie and girls, also. The ladies (from the very youngest A. to the oldest -- me) went to the church for a combined baby shower for Liz and another mom-to-be. While we were doing that, the guys stayed at the house doing their own thing. I think it involved talking, watching TV, and napping, not necessarily in that order. ;-) After the shower, we sat around the family room enjoying each other's company and watching the kids play.

The kids napped on the drive home, and with leftover stew for supper and an early bedtime, it was the ideal finish to a great day.

That sounds like a special day for all involved. So, you are going to be a grandmother? That's very special. I love being a grandmother.

I love it, too. This will be granddaughter #5 - the first child for daughter Liz. This baby will be the first grandchild for her husband's side of the family.

Sounds like a great day and similar to our Saturday - my nieces put together a shower for us and I took my girls with me - the guys had a "boy's day" w/their Daddy - it was nice to get home and be together again that evening :)

Sounds like an awesome relaxing day. Especially the taco soup! Thank you for your kind comment on my blog too.

I love simple, family time. The only time I don't like it is when I'm the one driving home and can't nap!
