Capturing the fun

This has been a relaxing fun weekend with hanging out yesterday with the family. The weekend got off to a little bit of a rocky start with the bird going to bird heaven, but is ending on a positive note so far.
My Internet is acting up so I have been trying to post pics for a long time. I gave up last night, but today is looking a bit more promising.
Yesterday TJ came down from Casa Grande to cook for the family. After a quick trip to the store to pick up some forgotten items he began. He planned quite the menu! Jen, John and Ms S joined us. Little Mr A was rock climbing so we didn't get to see him. TJ fixed his famous Mac and Cheese which was a huge hit, Phillie cheese steak sandwiches, sweet potato fries, chicken wings and I made a crock pot cake. Cake was a bit runny and as Jen said had we had ice cream to put on it, it would have been wonderful.
Following lunch the games began. They played Twist while I cleaned up. Lots of dishes to wash!!!
I am proud to say that Jen won so the tradition continues Yeah Jen!!
Jen and I took Ms S outside and played with my camera. I am sure the neighbors were wondering what the heck we were doing as Jen was on top of my jeep, TJ's truck and the ladder trying different angles. Ms S was so good about all the things we asked her to do.
After they all packed up and left I finished picking up and just kicked back and relaxed. TJ had hooked up my HD box and showed me the new remote. Yeap I have already messed it up so today I will need to read the book to get back to the HD box. Thank heavens the old remote still works.
