Happy Father's Day!

I hope everyone had a nice Father's Day! I didn't spend the day with any of MY Dads. I have two by the way. I just called them up and talked to them on the phone. Bad me. My mother in law was the first one to invite us over so that is where we went.

My sister in law works at Whole Foods so whenever she comes she brings LOTS of food. So nice! We brought a cheesecake, soda and chips. No one but us ate the cheesecake, soda or chips. I tried! Oh well! They bbq'd some ribs, made potato salad and had meat and cheese trays. It was all yummy! My brother in law and his daugther that we hardly ever see anymore were there too. I didn't take too many pictures because my mother in law had her camera out and I always feel weird taking pictures when someone else is taking them too.

Here's my kids on the couch. There isn't a whole lot to do there besides watch tv, which was blocked or just sit around and talk.

Almost everyone spent more time out in the "shop" so they could smoke. I think almost everyone in their family smokes. You come home smelling like you work in a cigarette factory.

This is the plant from my MIL's birthday. It is getting really big. I swear that woman can make a dead stick grow.

This is my MIL's rock garden. She says my FIL won't let her plant anything in the ground so she has things planted in all kinds of containers. I can't imagine anyone telling me what I couldn't do (and me actually listening). Hmmm times sure change over the years don't they!

You know that phrase "upcycle" and "recycle"? My IL lived through the depression. Everything has some kind of use around there. Or at least they keep it "just in case" it might.

Gotta love them!Pin It

I know what you mean about anyone telling you what you CAN'T do. That's just weird. I will ask...but then it's more information than a question cause I do it anyway.

Looks like everyone had a great time. I understand how you feel about taking pictures when other people have cameras. After a while, people start to get "say cheese" fatigue.
