Many of us know very well the joy of dining with girlfriends, but tonight my daughter discovered the fun to be had when a gaggle of girls gather around a table. Spaghetti, broccoli and ice water brought the girls to the table, but silly faces, giggles and a few dares kept them around the table long after the food was gone. It was truly a sight and sound to behold, and besides sneaking a few pictures and serving seconds, I kept my distance and let the girls be girls.
Dinner was followed by dessert and games outside. Today it's ice pops and Go Fish, but before long it will be tiramisu and Scrabble. Here's to many more dinners with friends and the absolute joy they bring to the table.
