Saturday evening

It doesn't seem like that long ago when I thought my social existance (or serious lack thereof) would be reduced to extinction if I had to spend a Saturday evening at home with the family.  Now I can think of no better way to spend that coveted night than out on the lawn with my family on a warm evening as the sun goes down.  My days are numbered before it's going to be my own daughter rolling her eyes at the thought of spending a Saturday night at home.  I'll have to brace myself for the feelings of betrayal when she chooses a movie with friends over a night of Monopoly and Red Vines with the fam because I know that someday she'll realize, just like I did, that friends really do come and go but it's your family that will always be there for you.  Until then, I think I'll just fold up this little memory and stick it in my pocket and take as many weekends like this that I can get.

You guys do such fun and cool things with your family. Your house will probably be where their friends will want to go hang out on the weekends. Glad you're enjoying some good quality family time before the tides turn.

Kylie's hair is getting so long! And YES I agree, I will cry the day the kids have plans on a friday night that do not involve the four of us, pizza, and a movie.

Awe, this made me a little sad :( I don't like to think about that part.
