Family Day!

Yep, today's the day to celebrate family. And Tammi wants to make sure we all remember to cherish our families. I put a roast in the crockpot before I left for work.

I thought I would tell about my days growing up, but that just wasn't terribly interesting, so instead:

Last night I was craving chinese food! We love chinese buffets so my family went to the local Dynasty Buffet. We'd never eaten there before, let me tell you upfront - the food was good. Really good. But . . . we almost didn't go inside because this is what greated us at the entrance!


We laughed through our entire meal. Sang "Nasty Buffet" to the tune of Janet Jackson's "Nasty Boys", Made our snow crab legs sword fight across the table, and I do believe I made my husband squirt cola out of his nose when I gave a shrimp a play-by-play of the hubby's digestive tract.

One more thing . . . laughing is good for digestion. So, don't just sit around a table and eat dinner with your family - enjoy it, enjoy them. Happy Family Day!

Wow, I'm surprised they didn't have someone out there fixing that sign right away.

Oddy, that sounds like an awesome and fun dinner! See, that's the kind of thing I'm talking about. Like your Mommy/Son weekends they are special and what builds a sense of family and togetherness and a bond between parent and child. I love the fact that you take your son to the firehouse because he get to see/know and understand that when you're away from him at a fire you're helping others and saving lives. Your showing him committment, responsibility and how important it is to help other families in need.

All those are big lessons for your little man. My post was aimed at people like my upstairs neighbor, whose children show no respect to anyone and are criminals in the making. Case in point on Sunday my son and I were walking home from the park and the neighbor upstairs was doing laundry at the local laundromat. She had sent the kids (5, 6, 7 & 8) around the corner & down the block by themselves to buy junk food. When they returned with it they threw the entire bag at her face, hurting her and stood their laughing. Even my son was shocked. Parents like her should be neutered in their teens!

I cant believe they named that diner Nasty Buffet. It's not like as if they didnt have to shell out money to pay for the sign :)
