Met the family at a restaurant. My parents didn't make it - something came up. Oldest brother is mad at my dad so HIS family didn't show, either. Mark, Sam and grandbabies came up from Benson. My middle brother, his wife, three of his four kids and his grandson were there.
After dinner, we ALL trooped over to my parents' house, only to find that they had finally gone to dinner. We hung around and waited for them, as they haven't seen Mia yet. Mom was thrilled - she wouldn't stop kissing on the baby. Sam was getting a kick out of going through the house, checking out all of the old family pictures. She found some of Mark, as a little boy. I had to plumb my memory, to remember how old he was, in each picture.
All in all, not a bad day
