meet the family
Last weekend, Jason and I hosted a brunch for Shannon and Will’s family to meet. I was worried about the fact that we don’t really have a formal dining room, nor ten chairs! But once the ‘rents got together. They seemed to meld together with ease.
While we busily prepared the food, we overheard conversations about UNC basketball, Dewey’s Bakery, health care, favorite Fifties TV shows. We were safe. The parents could sit at the table all on their own. And the kids managed eating on their laps in the den, less than a whopping two feet away.
After lunch, everyone got up and made the move towards the door. I had to stop them to take the first of many family photos to come. I was quite impressed. They nest together perfectly. My prediction – joint family vacations! Will it happen? I am betting yes.
The engagement party was lots of fun! Many thanks to Virginia for hosting the shin-dig for her little brother.
I’m not sure what this is about!
