FOOD & FELLOWSHIP!

Nothing better than that, right?

I think spontaneous moments are the BEST (well sometimes)!

After church on Sunday, some of our friends were going to The Olive Garden for lunch, and they invited us to come along. Can you tell we love to go out to eat?

There were a total of 24 of us. Nine adults. Fifteen kids.

We filled up the entire waiting area.

And, we practically had an entire private dining room to ourselves. I kind of felt bad for the three other people in there. We pretty much dominated.

We always have a good time when we're all together. It makes it even better that all our kids are good friends too!

We're all loud, we love to laugh, and we love to hang out and fellowship!!

And, excuse all the blurry photos. I had my camera on the wrong setting the entire time.


The boys! That's my eldest, second to the left.
Some of the girls! My girls are the one sitting down in the purple, and Veronica in the front with the brown shirt.
Ignacio, Michele, Christina, Lorena, Erica, & Jyl Time for ordering our food! Oh yah!
Yummy salad & breadsticks!
I'm so predictable! I order fettucini alfredo everywhere I go!My friends appetizer plate! Stuffed mushrooms, fried calamari, & fried zucchini!! Mmmm!Here are all the kids!!! My three youngest are in the middle (Veronica, Danny, & Eli), and then there's Isaiah on the far left flexing again, Miranda in the purple plaid!Stay tuned for the continuation on this post. It didn't end here. We had some fun in the parking lot!!!

That is so great! What a fun group. Oh, that food looks soooooo good, and I mean soooooo good. We have such a teeeeny town here. The closest Olive Garden (and anything else) is 5 hours away =( The next time I go for supplies I am SO going to Olive Garden!!!!

YUM! We love the Olive Garden! And I bet it was a blast going out to eat with such a big group! We do lunch after church sometimes and there are always way more kids than adults too!

Kimberly said...

Hey, there's nothing better than OG's fettucini alfredo. Well, unless you pair it with friends and fellowship. :)

Something we don't do a lot over here. Possibly not cultural.

Really could get used to it though.

And I looovvve the obvious community you have.
