Family Fun

This past weekend we had a family reunion so we hosted a family....or two....or three. I love it when family is in town because we get to spend quality time together and we always have a wonderful time. We had anywhere from 8-12 kids here at any given time so as you can imagine there was never a dull moment. One of the most fun things for the kids each night was when Adam would give his "ghost clown basement tour." All the kids would line up and march downstairs in the basement with Adam armed with only a flashlight. The house we live in now has an enormous finished basement but there are lots of different areas that are used as storage and look very different in the dark. Seeing them all together having such a good time reminded me of a game we used to play as kids called "the dark." In retrospect it was a cheesy game where we would just run around in the dark and scare each other but it was so much fun. I think the kids totally bonded with Adam after that and he is now more popular than ever! :-)
