Visiting the parents.

The girls were trying to figure out when the last time was that we went to my parents' place. Near as we can tell, it was last summer. They've been to our place a few times since but we haven't been there. So we went today. The sixth member of our family, T, also came along.

L drove the entire way. We all survived.

When we arrived, my aunt, uncle, and cousin were there. We didn't know they were going to be there and they didn't know we were coming so it was a nice surprise for everyone.

We talked; I showed the pictures from our vacation; J did some card tricks which impressed everyone; I scored a CD and got it autographed; the kids went swimming; and we all ate far far too much.

We came home with boxes and bags of stuff. Mom always claims that she's "clearing things out" and "cutting back" but I think it's just an excuse to buy new stuff.
