The weather ended up being way nice as the day went on. We played badminton and a few card games after eating (p.s. Joel grilled some way good hot dogs- and thankfully he humored my requests by toasting me a bun! seriously delicious). Brent was, naturally, a stud. He played endlessly with 5-year-old little Miranda. Aunt Tenna led some rousing political discussions and it was definitely a good get-together before school starts next Monday.
Heaven knows I need to see my family more often.
