What a weekend!

Yesterday, we all gathered at my niece's home for a cookout and just a relaxing time of visiting. It was great. You know how it goes: I sat on the back deck for awhile visiting and laughing with everyone out there. Then I wandered into the living room and chatted and relaxed with everyone in there. At one point, my nephew, Troy, called me into one of the bedrooms to play a couple of crazy, funny ringtones he had downloaded to his cellphone. We rolled on the bed laughing, only to be joined by April, Daniel, Erin and a couple of others. Who would have "thunk" you could have so much fun listening to ringtones?!?!?! LOL Oh, the wonder of cellphones!

Then it was back out to the deck where Troy asked me to give him a shoulder massage. And that started it. I ended up giving about 5 or 6 shoulder and neck massages. This is something they always ask me to do as family get-togethers, so it is kind of a tradition. :-) They all keep telling me I should go into the business! *smile*

One thing that simply amazed me was that all of the children (who were old enough) played in the pool almost the entire time of the gathering. There was no fighting or arguing. I was simply amazed that that many kids could play together for that long and have so much fun! Aren't pools great?! *smile*

Jaylon is here this morning, fast asleep in grandma and grandpa's bed. He's probably worn out from the weekend. He is such a good baby. I say "he gets passed around like a sack of "tatas" at church and family get-togethers! LOL But that is just how it goes for such cuddly, happy babies, hm? *smile*

We did have such a good time Barbara. Yesterday at the family gathering everyone was saying that he looks like a Cabbage Patch doll with those chubby cheeks! *smile*
