With the week just beginning today I was reflecting on how nice a weekend had just passed. Weekends are always the best part of the week and always kind've like a mini holiday!
Like every holiday there is always family or friends around....There's the family members that generally take a nap:

And there are the friends who are like family members:

And there are always the cuddlers :D

And there are the ones always ready for a group hug!

Also, continuing on in true holiday fashion, there is always the GREAT food :D
This weekend there was hand rolled toquitos, homemade cream cheese Jalapeno Poppers:
And the fresh Guacamole (hand chopped and diced courtesy of Richard:D )

Some weekends we have Italian fare or seafood or plain American bbq's but, Mexican food seems to be everybody's primary choice... plenty of spice or plenty of sour cream!
There are always games to be played on weekends... more than one Saturday or Sunday night has found the people up until all hours with Monopoly City or the famous Monopoly Deal. This weekend Richard introduced a french racing game that kept us occupied for most of the weekend evenings .
Along with the games are music, hiking, road non faraway places, :D and, of course, Lizzie's famous random trips! Those times when we pick up and leave for the beach at 6pm! Generally always because Liz thought of it out of the blue. :D
Thinking about it all makes my heart smile... families are the dearest things! I'm so very, very, thankful for mine! I'm so happy that the Lord has added new family members over the years! These are the best people I know, and I love them every one!
