While we were in Mesquite, we played the Keno machines. That was Judy's favorite thing to do, you'd find her at the penny slots drinking a large Diet Coke while Orval was working as a pit boss. So our family played the penny slots in remembrance of Judy. We did have a lot of fun as a family. My family is awesome and I'm so happy and glad to have each and every one of them, along with my siblings spouses, they're wonderful! We have a lot of fun when we get together and everyone is really caring even though we are EXTREMELY sarcastic with each other. That's just how we show our love :-D. But we had some fun while we were out there, we also played Bingo! That was actually pretty fun and funny cause the lady calling out the numbers sounded like a man and looked like Adam Sandler dressed up as a woman on The Best of Chris Farley. haha We also went bowling and sat in the hot tub for a bit. We all had fun and knew that Judy would want us to just be happy and be together as a family. But we still pray for Orval that he will be ok until he sees her again. I think it's a comfort for him, that she is right there in his backyard. I've posted a slideshow of all the things we did. Enjoy!
