Fun time with family

David’s brother, Mike, came to town, and we invited him and other family members to our home for dinner. We all had a good time.  It wasn’t at all stressful, because it was informal.

We posed for a family photo (Me, David, Mike’s family, and Maria’s family). I have framed it and placed it on my shelf:


Here are guests helping themselves to the buffet:


I made the food myself (Brown rice, baked honey chicken, lychee and orange salad, vegetable salad, and a cheese pizza from Pizza Hut). It was devoured by this hungry group:


The cousins sat on my carpet:



I showed off my new hibiscus garden, my backyard, and my guest room. All in all, it was a fun time with family.  We will see Mike and his family again at the Willows later this month.
