Dinner on the patio

Saturday night we enjoyed dinner in our backyard on the patio. The mosquitos aren't out yet so it was a pleasant time with my parents, twin brother and his family. The kids sat at their own table. Left to right: my wife, sister-in-law, Mom, twin brother and Dad

  1. A beautiful family gathering! Such an elegant table setting, makes me laugh at my own efforts where we just sorta slap things together on our patio! Kudos to your wife who probably organizes all of this for you!!

  9. Your dad and brother use the same barber that «Louis» uses. The three of us wear our hair in that fashion-forward reverse Mohawk.
