One commenter recently said her husband didn't grow up eating family meals and was reluctant because it felt very "formal" to him. Here are a couple shots of a dinner table, a breakfast, and an impromptu post-dinner puppet theater. M sat on my lap, I grabbed a pen and we laughed our heads off for fifteen minutes.
I remember growing up, hanging around after meals, even my brooding teen-aged brother would recline on our padded bench (it was a late 60's era awesome kitchen set) and hang out and chat.
What would you like to see more of on the FFD blog?
