We gathered last night at my house for food, fellowship, and fun. The chicken was tasty, the watermelon refreshing, and the salads tangy. Plus we had ice cream sundaes and almost had an ice cream eating competition between Najwa and Joseph. We played some yard games and the group that stayed the latest played a rousing game of Code Names. Plus, as always, Denver (our goldendoodle) was the center of attention running from one person to the next, retrieving the corn hole bags, and asking for pets from everyone. This night is always one of my favorites during summer research because we are outside of Gottwald just relaxing together. My students work so hard during the week that they deserve a break. Plus I love making food for people. 🙂 See below for our group photo. What a fun and smart team this year!
