Before heading to Little Rock my mom offered that she and Dad would watch all 7 grand kids one night we were in town so that the 4 of us Koss siblings and our spouses could go out kid-free for dinner together. There was only one night that was possibly going to work for all of us, but luckily we took advantage of it. So, while Mom, Dad, and the munchkins ate pancakes, wore pajamas, and watched Rio, the eight of us headed off to The Flying Fish for dinner.
Although we were deemed old and boring by Everett due to conversations regarding kids, vacuums, and sicknesses, it was a good time. I would definitely love to be able to get to do this type of thing more often. It sure does make me miss being closer to family!
We even got a sibling picture for Mom.
