I am the youngest of 5 - quite a bit younger, my siblings are 22, 21, 19 and 12 years older. So for the most part of my growing up years, they were married and not living at home. Most Saturdays, one or more of them would visit with their families. I have several nieces and nephews close to my age and always looked forward to having someone to play with. I now think my parents enjoyed these visits as much as I did. It is wonderful to have your grown children come home. Most Saturdays one or both of them call and says "What's for dinner?"
Sometimes we just sit around the table and talk.

Sometimes we play a game.

Sometimes there is a puzzle to be worked.

Sometimes there is a Wi bowling competition
Sometimes we just let this little one entertain us.

(He was pushing himself backwards in his truck just like Tito does his chair.)
But whatever we do, I treasure these times. I know there will come a time when they have better things to do than hang around with Tito and Gram, but until that day comes, I really like Saturdays.

You are lucky to have them there. Must be a good cook too (o:
We never have been able to make the game thing work. Sounds great though.

So sweet! Little Man looking up at his Granddad! Isn't it the best thing to have family around when nothing big is planned? Just enjoying whatever comes up. Everyone looks like they are haveing a good time. I love the pic of you laughing at the table!
