Cuddled In

Can’t return to blogging a bit without also highlighting some sweetly cuddled little girls.

Thunderer was sick on this one, but asleep you can’t tell that. She’s cozy and sleeping whatever it was at the time off, ready to bounce back.

Meanwhile here I think she decided to sneak into the parental bed while I was away grocery shopping.

And then Newbie always appreciates it when a cat comes calling.

Doggos

It’s official… we now have dogs.

Steele is a boxer/pit mix and Leo there…

Probably full beagle, but who knows.

We can blame Redflare’s newly found family for this. Steele was a gift from her brother while Leo was a rescue. Found starving and nearly frozen.

They both seem to have adjusted nicely to a warm home with five kids and three cats. Amusingly this brute of a dog is scared of cats, probably better that way.

Let the housebreaking and training to not be on the furniture commence!

Five Games, Five Generations

So before I get started, where the crap have I been? Well, after that last post on 11/16/18 I ran out of pictures and time to post anything more. The joys of helping run a family during the holidays. It’s been a rough couple of months.

I mean, it’s taking me almost a month to get to looking at this tweet we’ll get to into a moment.

Now, if you don’t follow this guy’s blog about gaming yet, I’d highly recommend heading his way. You can find him over at Adventure Rules.

So this challenge was to pull five games from five different generations (and challenge five people, which I’ll leave alone).

A tweet wouldn’t do my response justice, hence why I’m here.

You want generations of gaming? I’ve got generations of gaming.

Let’s get started!

Water Stops

While visiting there was very much a lack of air conditioning, so taking refuge near water was helpful for Redflare to stave off heat exhaustion.

There was a creek they literally went and sat in.

The creek visiting was probably her favorite part of the trip. Forgetting the outside world and doing something that maybe they’d have done as kids had they been able to grow up together.

And then when this close to the Missouri river, one can’t resist but taking a picture of it, right?

Brothers Found

Reuniting is definately the theme of this trip after the original plan for it went pear shaped. (Why is that even a saying?)

Older brothers.

Younger brothers.

Perhaps some closeups with brothers…


Even some old friends.


When life throws a monkey wrench at the plans, time to adjust to them and take advantage of the situation.

Nieces and Nephews Galore

Redflare had to head south this Summer (part of the reason why not a lot of pictures got processed for a bit).

The reason now doesn’t matter too much, but there was a bonus to it in finally getting to meet some newfound family members in person.

Like our nephew.

He’s amazingly about Little Miss’ age. The first of a gaggle of sudden new relations.

And the “old man” there? Her big brother that she’d been looking for… for a really long time.
