Simple Sunday – Late to the Party

National Pie Day is on January 23rd.  As luck would have it, I was sick on the weekend we had planned to celebrate it with family and friends.  The following weekend after that was Super Bowl Sunday.

And so it was that this weekend we ate pie and hung out with family and friends.

There were lots of delicious pies…

And more pies (plus a bowl of chocolate pudding that Carter made.)

Everyone sampled the pies…

Conversation turned to the mathematical concept of pi.  This caught Cody’s attention.  Lucky for him, his Aunt is a math teacher and so we busted out the measuring tape, a piece of string, a calculator, and several bowls to prove pi, 3.14.

With pie in our bellies and 3.14 on our minds, it turned out to be a very nice Pie Day celebration.

  1. no better celebration I can think of!

  2. Pie, Family and Friends… what else do you need?

    Except maybe beer.

    And wine.

  3. OMG, all these pies!!!! How did you get them finished????:)

      We didn’t finish them. We sent people home with slices of pie and tucked the rest in our fridge. It is tradition to have leftover pie for breakfast the next day – so good!

    We have never celebrated pie day and right now, I’m really questioning why. 😀

      Ha! I highly recommend it. And Jodi, I am happy to see you! I sent you a DM on twitter regarding how I can no longer comment on your blog (makes me angry and sad!). Perhaps I will have my techy husband look at it for me and maybe he can fix the problem if possible.
