it's a small world

My brother called Sunday afternoon and invited us to come over for some treats and games. It was a good night for us to get away, so we headed out to Mesa. They've got a lovely house, decorated beautifully, it's warm and inviting. Anyway, after chatting for a few minutes, the doorbell rang and a couple of their good friends stepped in who had also been invited over. This woman walked in and looked at me and said "you look familiar" then turned and said "OH MY GOSH -- DAVE!!!" It was Dave's cousin. We hadn't seen her in years. It was fun to catch up and spend an evening with my family and Dave's family both.

We played a round of "Apples to Apples". The cards in your hand have random words on them and you have to most closely match the concept of one of them to the word being played. We had second grader Shaw playing with us. The word was "shallow" and Shaw plays a card from his hand - "dating". Cracked me up. I thought it was a random match on his part, but he played every hand brilliantly. Smart kid, that nephew of mine.

Thanks for the invite Curtis and Lesa. It was a fun evening.

By the way, Curtis is an incredible DJ. Check out his website .

Apples to Apples is a fun game and there's always a lot of laughs when we play. Sorry I missed the fun...they invited me too but I had a group of people over for dinner so couldn't come.

Such a fun game. We were playing with my family. The word was "fluffy". My 12 (then 11) year old brother played "Dolly Pardon"---hee hee. We couldn't stop laughing.
