It's funny, because even though it was my mother-in-law's idea to have this little party, it is TOTALLY something I would have thought of doing, and I loved everything about it. (Well except the fact that the other cousins didn't come.)
Everyone was instructed to come ready to perform something patriotic on their new stage. (The children LOVE the stage--I would have too as a child. I'm actually working up the nerve to perform something on it one of these days.)
Drew got stage fright at the last minute, which so isn't like him and was thus excused from performing.
Perhaps my knowledge (or lack of) demonstrated throughout the game were part of the reason I left their house on Monday night with stacks of books to read up on before my trip to Boston this spring. (With my mother-in-law no less!)
And yes, in case you hadn't noticed, we were all wearing red, white and blue.
What a way to celebrate President's Day!
I think it should become a tradition.
Except for the What You Know About America game.
