Fun Fan Friday ~ Family Minutes

Laughter, drinks clinking on the table, chattering, warm summer air, and swim suits. It was a perfect summer evening with my extended family. There’s never a dull moment when we all get together. We’re a crazy family and the laughter surrounds us.

What we didn’t realize, was my teenage son sitting quietly at the end of the table taking notes on a napkin with a sharpee.

Here is what he captured:

Hunk doree. I like sausage. Pretty plants. $19.99 $49.99 Lilly’s front yard. Deer. Roots. bulbs. vegetation. Bailey!! Goat. OMG! toot. I’m not. Hey look at the moon.

Taquitos. get chicken. sour cream. I can’t get out. Happy dance. laptop. wifi. Double crayon. It’s awful. 2 years. Mine’s huge. It’s old. It is what it is. How will we serve the youngsters. Just eat it.

Now not a lot of that makes sense but it’s a fair warning that you never who might be listening and worse yet, recording your words πŸ™‚

Happy Friday!

What crazy things happen when your extended family gets together?


  1. Family good times…you are a mom after my own heart! The funny thing is my daughter has done the exact same thing and then read our randomness back to us! Do you guys ever play fishbowl? Great family fun game? BTU, Tracey

  2. Melinda,

    Family together for me are the most happiest time in our life…With or without particular events still it’s the most sweet thing to do…The best laugh, sharing stories and eating together even in a few hours still its the best memories to remember..I just love being with my family…

    “When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happiness.”
