                         Ok, if eating is wrong, i dont want to be right...hahhahaha  well i don't know what else to to tell you, but our family loves food. We all love to cook, spend time talking just about anything and telling jokes! So, after last night's party, we decided to have a barbecue at the park before we head back to Bakersfield, which is like a 3 and a half hour drive from Modesto. unfortunately the park that we went ot did not have barbecue grills and they have this huge sign that says no fire. So then, we go back to my brother in law's cousins' house for the barbecue. I say, park or no park made no difference. We were as merry as we can be. So merry, that we forgot the time. we're supposed to leave before dark and when you know it, the sun just disappeared hahahhaha.....You are always in good company with your family around, that you just forget the time. Even if you just talked about nonsensical things, going back years before when we were kids, but just the laughter being shared together is just priceless. I can't wait till the next gathering again. It did'nt matter wether we drove 3 or 4 hours. We got home close to midnight, tired and our bellys full, and the laughter and times spent together will stay in our hearts forever.


  1. so so true! love spending time together!
    and Lili love all the chat with you, makes me feel you are so close by!
