How do we celebrate seeing our daughter for the first time in nearly three years?
We go to Pizza Hut, of course.
My family was thrilled when I brought my camera along. As you can see they love me documenting every moment of their lives.
My parents somehow thought it was a fabulous idea to take our family out to dinner to celebrate the return of our two daughters.
We all thought gorging on hot pizza was a fabulous idea (sorry, Jenny, sometimes you just have to throw caution to the wind and celebrate).
I think actually, my parents were remembering the birthday celebration a few years ago when they decided that instead of taking us all out to Pizza Hut (our family tradition for my mom’s birthday) they’d just order pizza in.
To keep things simple.
I don’t remember everything that went down that fateful night, but I do remember a piece of pizza being thrown across their living room and one child stomping out of the house and “running away” into the dark, rainy night.
It probably wasn’t the happiest of birthdays for my mom.
I am proud to let you know that no one ran away last night, no pizza was thrown and a good time was had by all.
Enoch was busy explaining to us what a kangaroo unicycle was.
Yeah, we didn’t get it either. It’s probably best just to watch this video.
Just how much pizza does it take to feed our crew? I have no idea. My dad ordered a ton and we all enjoyed our fill.
And the Stuffed Garlic Knots? If you haven’t tried these you should rush to your nearest Pizza Hut and order them.
They were so good I could have skipped the pizza altogether.
And I love pizza.
The night we picked up the girls, I warned Adalia that Apollo was very shy and would take a while to warm up to her (he was only three when she got married). Except, I was wrong. When he saw her in the morning, his face light up and he gave her the biggest of hugs.
Thank goodness for Skype.
In case you’re wondering, yes, the boys are starting to notice we have a house full of beautiful daughters…
But that’s okay.
Chuck’s got it covered.
