This past weekend, our family of four had the privilege of spending time with some of our favorite out-of-towners! What was the reason that our friends were willing to pack their cars and drive in from out of state? A three- day weekend? Nope. The giant slip and slide that the men-folk constructed? Nope. Try again! How about to attend their annual fantasy football draft? Yep- an all day event that involves smack talk, wings and beer- with limited female interruption. The ladies are all accustom to their draft day get togethers and we look forward to spending time with one another.
The day after the menfolk finished their draft, we all met up again for an impromptu cook out. The guys watched the NASCAR race with the kiddos while the ladies came together- in what seemed to be a magical culinary moment and had dinner ready for around 15 people in 30 minutes!
After dinner, the discussion changed to fantasy football. In previous years, we had a couples league. Out of either lack of interest or busy schedules, the league had "disbanded." For some odd reason, the ladies came to the conclusion that we should bring it back- but the guys had already drafted. So...why not just do a "Ladies Only" league? I mentioned that we might want to wait twenty minutes and see if we still thought it was a good idea. Apparently it was!
Not a high quality photo- but you get the point:)
Twenty minutes later, our commissioner, Ryan had us all set up for our very own ESPN Fantasy draft. Here is when we wish we had a video recording! Let me tell you...trying to get six girls logged into anything at one time is challenging. Poor Ryan. We were all asking questions, trying to figure out how to keep our phones from dying, asking more questions, complaining about missing passwords and asking even more questions! Between Ryan answering all of our football and technical queries and Bama, our host with the most, setting us up with wine and a phone charging station- we were a deck full of crazy and it was amazing!
Hope you enjoyed our Top 10!
