Friday night was the night my mom met Big-D. We all went to eat at this great Thai restaurant. The food was good and I think he quickly realized that my parents are just regular down-to-earth, sometimes a little eccentric type people. We laughed and had a good time. He even blushed a little when not only I, nor my sister, but when my mom told an ever-so-slightly dirty joke. Nothing too racy. Mostly funny and shocking coming from a parental unit.
Saturday everyone gathered at my house for our annual
Then Sunday, after spending the day with my sister, my parents drove up to my house for a game night with the kids and Big-D. More laughter, more fun, and just a wee bit more slightly-naughty humor. (Thankfully the only child that picked up on it was the 14 year old).
Highlights for the weekend...
Watching the three of us (mom, sis & me) guffaw and "wheeze" as I tell a story to my dad, about Big-D and a turtle in its shell (you had to be there).
My daughter punting, and picking out one of her beloved beanie babies and wrapping it up to give to Big-D, cuz she wanted to make sure he had enough presents to open.
Getting Big-D to play "BOB" with my family (another thing that's just an inside family thing).
Here's a few pics my mom was able to snag. Enjoy!
