#249 Shrimp and ants.

Alternatively titled: “#249 It’s the little things.”
Ben’s mom invited her siblings over for a shrimp boil today, so Ben and I went down to the coast and spent the night to be there for it. The weather was a bit warmer than it’s been these last few days, but still totally pleasant in the shade. We had boiled shrimp, potatoes, corn, and sausage, his brother Sam grilled some amazing pork loin, and we had peach and key lime pies too. It doesn’t hurt that later on, I smoked all the boys in a ping pong tournament — even Jesse, the reigning champion.
The grown ups table.
The kiddie table.
The food was great, but even better was what we saw after dinner:
A group of ants working together to carry a cracker off into the yard. It only took them about 10 minutes to go 10 feet.
There’s no ‘I’ in team, y’all.
