Sundays In My City

A few weeks ago, our family spent a wonderful evening in the park. There were only fifteen of us in the group because, well, some of our slacker kids had better invitations elsewhere. Like our son John, for instance. He was invited by the USN to go overseas on deployment. Which remnds me, there is a post all about our son, Popeye, coming up next week. Yeah, you might not want to miss that one. I'm just saying.

Anyway, the fifteen of us bundled up that Sunday night and headed over to Braums for chili. Even though it was a bazillion degrees below zero outside, we finished off our dinner with ice cream. Hey, it's Braums! Then it was off to the park.


Our giant 12 year old and her mini 25 year old sister. These two are nothing but trouble. All. The. Time.


Our youngest granddaughter practicing her Christmas solo.


Loading up and getting ready for the fantasmical train ride through the park.


All Aboard!


The Not Mormon No Tabernacle Who Are You Kidding Choir




And finally, I would like to leave you with this. Be sure to watch it to the end because it is pretty darn cool. We figure we have enough people in our immediate family to pull this off at the Christmas train next year.

It is my DREAM to be in a flash mob. Yep. I aim low but it is a dream nonetheless.

have you seen the Hallelujah chorus one? I'm with "Two Shades of Pink", I think it would be fun to part of one! :)

Katharine said...

The hallelujah chorus was done at the mall twenty minutes from where we live...I wish we had been shopping that day! I'd love to be part of one...Merry Christmas!

I think it would be so exciting to experience a flashmob event. I'd only want to watch though - the true singers would surely kick me to kingdom come if I tried to sing along. I know my limits. Just sayin' . . .

Nancy C said...

Now that is a reason for us to keep on having kids...to possibly have our very own flash mob!

I love your family and the humor and joy you bring to life.

Coby said...

I'm actually frightened of flash mobs. Very frightened. I'm afraid they'd ask me to drink some special Kool-Aid once the dancing was over.

Brian Miller said...

Do re me - I've always enjoyed this video! I always have to watch it twice when I see it for some reason. Looks like your event at the park was a lot of fun. Great that you were with your extended family!

Just Be Real said...

Never heard that expression before, flash mods. Love it. Blessings.

I love that train station video! Saw it last year. My family's big enough to be able to pull it off too. Problem is, they're too damn lazy.

Adoption of Jane said...

Looks like loads of fun!

Sarah said...

Hey I see the kids are in short sleeves and there's no snow on the ground. Maybe you were in Cali and forgot?

Matty said...

Hey, ice cream at any time of year is appropriate.

"fantasmical"? LOL

I hope I'm in the right place at the right time to see a flash mob. Those things are great.

Unknown Mami said...

Do you know that it is one of my goals to participate in a flash mob? I love them.

Happy Holidays!

Mama Zen said...

You know, that flash mob thing only works if you have a bunch of people with you. If you just do it by yourself, you kind of look like a dork. At least, I did.

I would have love to be with you all. Looks like tons of fun!!
