On Wednesday, 4/13, we stole Karen's parents' thunder by making them come to our house for dinner (after they had invited us over to their place). Truth be told, I really wanted hamburgers and hot dogs from my awesome charcoal grill (which was a gift from my in-laws) so that's why we declined their invite and, in turn, told them to come over here. We didn't have time to play any games, but in addition to Karen's parents, we were also able to have the following other family members over: her brother and sister-in-law, her sister, another sister-in-law and her newborn son (her husband was @ school), and our teenage niece and nephew. It was super crazy, super loud, and also super fun to have so many people over mostly "on the fly." I also got to have a very good chat with my niece and I hope it helped her out because it sure made my day nicer!
On Thursday, 4/14, my buddy Craig and his two boys came over to hang out. Craig and I played some pool and some Wii. Then later, after Domino's pizza for dinner, his friends (who hopefully will become our friends) Paul and Krista came by to play some Dominion. It was very fun and great to get to meet this newlywed couple who are expecting their first child later this year.

Anyway ... Sunday rolled around and without thinking about how we had already had people over for the last four evenings, Karen and I reached out to several family members and friends. No one could come over at such short notice and on a school night no less, so the streak ended. I am still glad for all the fun we had over those days ... but I am a competitive person so you can bet I'll try to break that streak, especially when the summer comes and we don't have to worry about "school nights" and such. I'm thinking 7 days straight is a very realistic goal! Get ready to be invited over and you can forever be a part of the new record! :)
