You Know You're A Grown-Up When...

Nothing momentous. Just a Krista-style photo post from last weekend when the DuBois-MacAllister-Kurns-Covarrubias family came to town for Mom's birthday. It was the first time we'd all been in the same place since my sister's wedding last summer.

This one of Bryn & Karla was an accident. The light poured in through the kitchen window and obscured them both.

Bill still found time to work.

Everyone was of course subjected to Brophy Brothers seafood. Mom got a good view of the harbor, something she missed much these days.

Not shown: the riotous disintegration of decorum once the "Apples to Apples" game was unearthed.

When Em's parents were here for Thanksgiving she said something like "you know you're a grown-up when people start coming to your house, instead of you going to their house, for holidays and birthdays, instead of the other way around."

Maybe so, but it's fun to be the central hub of things every once in a while.


  1. LOL I thought it was totally appropriate that there is a picture of you standing in front of a map (which as soon as I saw it, I KNEW you were at Brophy's, even before you stated it a few pictures later!)

  2. That first photo is a really great accident. I love Krista-style cause it means a bunch of photos smashed in one post, haa!

    I love that "you know when you're grown up when" quote, it's so true and it is nice to be that centre of gravity that pulls everyone together.

  3. Brophy's is bomb! Miss that place..
