My parents recently arrived home from their winter hiatus to Arizona and Mexico, so last night all of the family got together at their home for dinner. My assignment was to bring a salad so I settled on one of my favorites; tortellini salad. Very quick and easy to make. It was a real hit and my bowl came home empty.
The grandkids had a great time, as always. My dad broke out the paper rocket launcher, which we all pitched in and bought for him last Father's Day. It's a great thing for one of those men who loves gadgets and it's always a hit with the kids! Here's a picture of my dad, who rarely actually uses the rocket launcher, but loves to see the kids have a great time, and DD2, who is getting ready to send her rocket into space. It's amazing what 30 lbs. of compressed air can do. These rockets will shoot 100 to 200 feet into the air. The weather was great...not too breezy. Only a few of the rocket landed on the neighbor's roofs and in their backyards. LOL!Here's a cute picture of my mom. We were teasing her because she was finishing off the last sliver of pie from the pie tin, while holding cotton candy between her legs. Can you ever have too much of the good stuff?!
