Day 70: Family Bonds

Went to dinner tonight with the family -- which included us 5 Simon's, and Grandma Paula & Papa Craig, Brian's parents from Roseville, California (that's near Sacramento) who are in town visiting. We had all attended Harrison & Spencer's baseball game and then went to one of the local favorites, Factor's Famous Deli. Had a yummy dinner as usual.

This post is not about our delicious corned beef sandwiches, it's about how much fun we had and apparently our fun loving time was noticed by others too.

We had a darling Russian server named Olga who made our dining enjoyable by being on top of all our wants. When it was time to pay the bill we thanked her for her service and she said,

"No thank you. Your family is beautiful and the love shows through. I hope someday to have a family like this."

Well that really touched my heart. Sometimes we take for granted how close we are in this Simon family, always loving & kissing & hugging, not realizing that many families don't share this kind of bond.

It doesn't always take a big family hoopla to share special moments. Sometimes it's just the simple mundane things like attending a ball game and sharing a family dinner together that creates the memories that last. It was a good night!
