Apr 25, 2011 - Family Get-Together

Tonight we are parked in the driveway of Barbara's brother. Three of her sisters, the brother and all the spouses met here this afternoon to have a last family gathering before we head west in the morning. Butch's wife, Judy, served us a ton of food left over from her family Easter dinner and it was delicious. We all played farkle for awhile afterwards.
