Fun and Games
After calling and waking us up, DOR (Daughter of Ralph) picked us up early Saturday morning and we drove to the SOR’s (Son of Ralph’s) and SORSO’s (Son of Ralph’s Significant Other) house.
We went to a seven year olds basketball game. I don’t know if he was the leading scorer but he scored ten points. Prior to that game his high had been two points. It was a fun game to watch.
Then it was off to the fourteen year olds solo vocal competition. She did a wonderful job of singing ‘Amazing Grace’. Another fun event and she took second in the competition. Somehow, a bouquet of flowers ended up behind a door and she was surprised when they were given to her.
Then it was off to SILOR’s (Son in law of Ralph’s) last college basketball game. The game went into overtime where SILOR scored six points making a victory possible for his school. The game was exciting but SILOR was under a great deal of pressure. It was an away game and we were there as his personnel cheering section. To make matters worse, right before the game the seven year old walked up to him and said, “I made ten points at my game. Do you think you can do that?” I have no idea who put him up to that . . . well, maybe I do. At the end of regulation play SILOR had nine points, good thing it went into overtime.
Then we had a birthday party for SILOR. SOR and SORSO did a nice job of making the arrangements. This too was a fun time, full of laughter.
The next morning Char spent some time playing board games with the kids. Yep, more fun as can be seen in the picture.
We spent the first and last night with our good friend Millie. We had a great visit with her adding that much more too all the fun we had.
But there was a downside. At DOR’s and SILOR’s apartment, I learned playing video golf is as frustrating as the actual game.
