Eatfest Weekend and reunion

This weekend was not good for anyone's diet. Separately, maybe it may have passed for a little indulgence but three?
It started Saturday with the Lemon Butter Club meeting. We usually have these meetings every other month so it isn't like we do this to often. But with Donald visiting from Chicago, not that anyone is complaining. We don't see him or his family often enough so when anyone of them is in town it is a reason for getting together and of course, when we get together... food is always involved.
After Sunday's service over at Ambassador Church, we headed out to one of our new favorite places to go , Pho Saigon. We went here for lunch last week and packed the place in. Normally, the owner Alex would be happy at such a big crowd but the cook at his other restaurant up and quit without warning so he sent the cook here to the other place. He figured it was pretty quiet so he could take over the kitchen duties. Then we walked in and other parties came in after us.
We did not bring in as large a crowd yesterday but we were still a party of 20+.

Sitting between James and Tony, I wonder if Grace was able to eat at all?

I wonder if Maria knows that Mike was wondering what the chances are of her riding in the back of a motorcycle?

I don't care what anybody says, rabbit ears never get old. Isn't that right Grace?

Here's the culprit... James.

Tokyo Lobby: Dinner and a mini reunion
Everytime anyone from the Moy clan comes into town for a visit, more likely than not a dinner at Tokyo Lobby will take place. This visit was no exception, with a meet time of 6:00pm people started trickling in a few minutes before. When it comes to food, this group can be on time. There have been a number of changes to this Tokyo Lobby. It has been sold so there is a new owner and the regular staff are all gone. Once we got seated at our usual corner, we all got to ordering. A logistical nightmare for someone not familiar with this group.

Derrick is thinking that maybe he should have ordered 2 boats.

Parking lot Ministry
It never fails. After spending more than an hour AFTER eating sitting around in the restaurant, there is still another half hour of goodbyes in the parking lot... and more pictures.

Then the jump picture...

Then the guys...

The ladies and the kids tried their version but it was such a terrible attempt that I'm not even going to put up the pictures... James didn't (couldn't) jump with the rest of the guys. I think he was really full.
