Family get together


Dianne and niece closer up, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.

Yesterday was the first day I ventured out in the van since Tuesday as we were invited to a 14th birthday celebration for my nephew. We arrived to lots of yummy food from burgers on the grill (first for us of the year) to homemade mac and cheese. Mom brought a new game suggested by my middle brother called Apples to Apples. Bri, Sean, Mom, T and I played and it was fun. The link let’s you try it out online. T was a bit younger than recommended, but she did well.
Saw my one relative for the first time in 8 months and we hugged and talked. That was good. I hate grudges.
My dear niece always poses with me and I wanted to share this sweet shot Sean took. My hair use to be in the same color range of hers. She has blue eyes and mine look green here but are actually hazel.  She’ll be 11 on the 11th of April! She showed us the display board she made for her Elvis*Presley research paper. They could pick anything/anyone and she picked him. She may have been influenced to pick him as her dad and Elvis share the same January 8th birthday.
Ok, time to get moving and enjoy the last day in the 70s we’ll have for a while. It’s been absolutely gorgeous this weekend.

  1. What a bright springy blouse. It looks good on you–love the necklace.
    It’s been months since we grilled burgers or anything else. Sounds good!
