Going Away Festivities

We had a going away party yesterday. One group joined us at the casino for a buffet lunch:

We had to take the picture really fast because photos aren't allowed in the casino.

I also hopped into a picture and Moo went behind the camera. We wanted an employee to take the picture for us, but he let us know we weren’t allowed to take pictures but promised to walk away and pretend he had no idea what we were doing. πŸ™‚

Then, another group (with some overlap) came over to the house to play games and try to drink away our wine & liquor collection that can’t be moved. (The recycle bin had 20 empty bottles in it, so good job, y’all! But I still have about 30 more, so…again tonight? j/k)

We played 8-player RoboRally to start the evening. Telestrations, Age of Steam, and Cards Against Humanity also hit the table.

This morning, Moo and R* and I played Endeavor as the game to be the final game the three of us play in this house. :*( We hugged. Moo and I cried a bit. Then, they left with promises to stay in touch and meet up soon in Vegas. So, that’s that. I have no more excuses now and have begun prepping to do my “final move” on Thursday. DH will still effectively live in IL for the next month or so, but Pancake and I will officially be living in Seattle as of Thursday evening.

  1. SO many bottles! How did any gaming get done? πŸ™‚
    Hugs all around to those peeps who helped (and who will no doubt find excuses to travel westward).
