A wonderful day today here. We had family over for a great afternoon of some great food (if I do say so myself), good conversation, and a great time together.


Oh, there was part of me that wondered about the effort we have to put into having gatherings: cleaning, preparing munchies and a meal for double our normal number–after all, it is a holiday weekend, and extra time to just relax and hang out doesn’t come around that often. But it’s part of the decision making process on how to spend your time.


I really enjoy cooking meals for gatherings like this. And I really enjoy seeing the family gathered. So yes, it was very worthwhile.


But on to the other reason for this post: concert video.


These three are from Patrick’s concert Thursday night. I’ll have the girls’ choir concert up tomorrow or Tuesday night.



Happy Memorial Day, everyone.


See you tomorrow.
