How long has it been since you went shopping with eight young people?? In the heat no less?? Saturday my daughter was going yard saleing with some of her friends. She asked me if I'd like to come along. We picked up three of her friends, and off we went. In and out of the car, in the heat, we made our way around the neighborhoods. Around noon we met up with the other girls and two other moms for lunch. What fun!
And, having a brand new IKEA store in town, it was decided that we would go check it out. I can't tell you how much fun it was to watch this group of girls move through this monster of a store.
This was a typical scene. There are seven of them here, all prodding through housewares. It was a most fun experience, laughing and excitement at every turn.
And of course there was lots of room designing going on. A few pictures were snapped to preserve a memory. I don't think we bought much merchandise, but it was a unanimous vote that everyone enjoyed the store.
Our family went on to a very special birthday party that evening.
Lots of hugs and well wishing to the man of the hour.
Accumulated ages are 357 years sitting together at the table. Brothers, sister, and wife. What incredible longevity.
Thank you all for the birthday wishes that were sent my way for my father in love. He is very deserving of each one of them.
Have a great day!
