Nick’s parents finally had their anniversary dinner (a month late) tonight. We all got together and had a thanksgiving-style dinner at his parents house. The kids, of their own accord, all sat together (well, McKinley sat with her mom, but the mobile kids all chose to sit together). It was really cute. After dinner we had the family picture and played Cranium. I thought it was funny how the teams divided up and what our various strengths were (my team: me, Nick, Nick’s mom; our strength: data & words. their team: Mandy, her husband, and Matt; their strength: acting & drawing).

Anyways, a very good evening.
