Sounded strange and a bit scary, but it turned out great and both ways were a hit. During dinner, we watched an old videotape of when the kids were very young, on vacation at grandma and grandpa’s. It was great to see them laugh at themselves and share that laughter with their respective spouses and finance’. All in all, it was great way to wrap up the weekend. Of course, I still have dishes to do tonight, but there will be time for that!
