Tonight we headed over to Bob's to have supper, hang out, and escape confinement with FIL. Bob's girlies were there, and we brought 2 of the cousins with us for a nice total of 7 girls and, yes, the one boy. The kids splashed in the pool and played, we ate pizza, played the piano and sang. What a blast! We had a rousing rendition of "Jesus Loves Them Prostitutes," some stuff from a couple of Hal Leonard books that GuTTer MuNKi bought (compilations of various old rock songs) and plenty of make-it-up-as-you-go stuff, LOL! Bob demoed a couple of the songs he's mixing for the new CD for us, and WOW! Shame is going to be awesome, and Trudy is one you just can't not sing along with.
Tomorrow morning MIL and FIL take off for greener pastures, leaving us irresponsible children and grandchildren to hold down the fort. Huzzah! A little break from the stress will be nice. Though I feel bad for MIL. We'll get to see her when they get back, as we are looking at extending the trip just a bit so we can see her more and also see our other niece. I'm hoping we'll get a chance to get her out and about with us when they return.
A bonus of this is that we'll get to be extras in our friend Frank's film if all goes well. Yay!
GuTTer MuNKi and FIL fixed one of our van doors so that we can open it from the inside now. His next mission is to replace the broken off door handle of the other door and also fix it so it opens from the inside.
The MuNKi* also surprised me with 2 awesome piano books.

MUNKI: Are you GuTTer MuNKiing again?
