Saturday Activities

This Saturday we had Family Friends Potluck (an international gathering).

At first, we thought not many people were going to show up....but after about a 1/2 hour, lots and lots came. Surprisingly, there was a lot of main dishes and not many desserts! (For us, that's not normal... ha ha)

We (M and I) had decided to keep it pretty easy, as to what to bring. We brought a rhubarb cake and a chick pea dish. The chick peas were really yummy.
After the meal and visiting and clean up, we headed over to the college football game with some of our students. We lost, but oh well. We still had fun.
The sun was pretty much in ours eyes so we had to improvise!


After that, we picked up a couple of our other friends and headed over to our parents for some croquet games. That was fun, except we lost there too!

And then, a quiet evening at home. How nice.
